It's Happening

In every young woman's life, there comes a point where ~~~ she becomes ~~~ her mother!

Yesterday morning, we were getting ready to leave the house and she asked for something. When I told her no, she mumbled, "It juss not fayer!" (Where did she learn this?)

I'm telling you - before I could even think about a response, it came out..."Well, life's not always fair!"

I always said I'd never say that to my children. My mother assured me I would.

She was right.

I always said I'd never use the powerful "mama spit" on E's face too. My mother assured me I would.

She was right. That mama spit works wonders!

Someday when E doesn't feel good, she will tell me something hurts and I will probably respond with, "Ah it's just a growing pain. You'll be fine."

That would be from my grandmother. When she has pain, she has pain. But when you do, it's only a growing pain.

Yep - I grew alright. Right straight into my mother. It was inevitable. :c)

Sorry, Baby. I can remember saying I'd never say the same things my mother said, too. I've noticed even more repeats of "Mamaw" the older I get. Hey, I never thought I looked like my mother - but guess what? Maybe repeating my "sayings" isn't all bad, though!
Love, Mom

I find myself each day acting more like my mother did with me as a child.

While growing up I said "I will never do that to my kids" I guess that is why we "never say never".....

But my mom is the best so I guess it's ok?!

Mom, not a bad thing at all.

I like to think I turned out okay and that was because I have great parents as you. So, if I "act" like you and follow your example, I should have no worries about my children.

Love you!
