It’s kind of crazy how often I hear myself spitting out phrases that my mom used to say that would drive me crazy. Remember those sayings that your mom would use at any chance she could get that would embarrass you in front of your friends? Well now I use them. My poor future children . . .
My favorite is when my husband is trying to tell me that something I’m eating is gross or we have different opinions on movies. I’ll say my favorite mom-ism, “Different people like different things!”. Another good one is that when he says something mean, I’ll say “Is that nice?”. Seriously, when did I turn into my mother?
Anyway, thank you mom for teaching me how to embarrass my kids with grace and style. I love you!
