My Momma likes to say

Poetry, explanations and delightful artwork, conceived from a child’s point of view, provide meaning to parental idioms and witticisms such as, “I have eyes in the back of my head;” “Sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite;” and “Hold your horses.”
“Offers an amusing tale about a child’s literal interpretation of the statements his mother commonly makes, such as  ‘money doesn’t grow on trees’ and ‘hold your horses.’” –  Books and More for Growing Minds
