Weekend Assignment #96: "For ladies: Name an incident when you thought: '"OMG I AM my mother! For guys: Same with your father!"
A single incident? Impossible. How can I count the ways I'm like my mother?
Every time I say something to Cliff about how my children could do better at spending their money or raising their children, I AM my mother. (Yes, my children read this journal, and are probably smirking right now.) That used to be one of the things that irked me most about Mother. Don't worry, Cliff reminds me who I sound like. And I smile sheepishly and shut up.
Extra credit: What did you parents do when you told them about it?
I didn't. This is the sort of thing my mother would never have understood. Perhaps Daddy would have.
