I recall me and my sisters muttering - we will *never* to this to our children .. guess what, 28yrs later, yesterday, I found myself trying to arrange a "Face" using carrots & peas. When that didn't work, I tried to come up with a game - which failed too and finally, I found myself saying 'I am putting my special 'mom's' foot down' ... Oh My God ! I never thougth I would be saying this ever !!! I called my mom immediately :)
With the mother's day approaching - would you like to share some anecdotes which made you pause and think "oh my god, I am my mother" ! ? I am a new mom and I, for one, would be really interested in these ...

I am sure that there are more, but the one that strikes me is when I tell my daughter "Get your nose out of a book and go outside and get some fresh air and exercise!" She takes after me by reading anything she can get her hands on.

I never thought I would tell my children, "because I said so." But I did - and thought it was a pretty darned good reason!

How about : " If you are bored, I have some housechores that you can do for me"
Great magic cure for boredom in kids, and the first time I said it I cracked up.
Or, my mom used to say " I am cold, go put on your sweater". Another shocking thing to say!
