Weekend assignment

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. 

If you'd like to do the weekend assignment, be sure to leave a link to the entry at John Scalzi's blog.
