Adapted from “Moto-Momisms” By Robin Crutcher, in The Best of Motomom

Mom-isms are a thing that usually only a mother gets to say, say often, or say with gusto. If you were ever a kid, you heard some from your mom, if you are a mom you no doubt have uttered a few. Moreover, MotomMoms seem to have a vast repertoire of ‘isms.’ Some of these I use myself, some I’ve overheard.

Please feel free to use any that you find appropriate and useful. Make sure to share with us your favorites.

“Go ahead. Try the triple. But if you break your leg don’t come running to me.”

“What? Do I look like I’m made of spark plugs?”

“Ask your father.”

“You can break in your own new boots. Outside. Stay away from my shower.”

“Who put the mother trucking air filters in the dishwasher?”


“Keep up that attitude and I’m spraying your grips with plastic shine.”

“Your trophies need dusted. You can do it.”

“New bikes don’t grow on trees.”

“No, the trophy girl isn’t coming home with you.”

“Big air doesn’t mean a fart contest in my camper.”


“If you want to hang a T&A poster in the garage, make sure it’s the one I was on in 2003.”

“Ask your father.”

“Hell NO.”

“You can wipe the dirt off that hot dog. As much soil as you ate in the last Moto a little more won’t hurt you.”

“You want WHITE riding gear? Are you crazy?”

“Why are there tear-offs in the washing machine?”

“If you’re backing up the trailer, you don’t get to say ‘oops’.”

“I will slap your visor around backwards if you talk like that to me again.”


“No boots in the camper.”

“Ask your father.”

But after all of these, my personal favorite to utter is: “I am so proud of you.”

See you Sunday. -MotoMom
