Quoting MommyingWithGrace:" That is true. Been there more times than I can count. My mom always says to me "You might stumble, but you will never fall". Best piece of advice she ever gave me."
That's not advice, advice is telling you how to proceed or a suggestion on how you should handle a situation.
"You might stumble but you will never fall" is a tacky catch phrase that you put on a bumper sticker or tattoo on your lower back.
I can think of a million stories of people who fell, lol how about that chick on here who left her kids in the car so long they'll be smurfed for life. That's more than a stumble.
Or like those moms who shake their kids into comas.
That smurf isn't sorting itself out, is it?
