When did I turn into my mother?

(Because we thought we knew more than they did of course) Well for many a year after being out on my own and doing what I wanted to do, I had kids. I have now officially turned into my mother. "Clean your room, it’s a pigsty (no lipstick involved)", You eat all of those lima beans on your plate, there are children starving all over the world" (it was and still is a fact). What’s wrong with your sneakers from last year, they don't have any holes in them!". " No you can't stay up late because you never want to get up in the morning.", and my old time favorite, "BECAUSE I SAID SO!!!!!!!”. I didn't know if anything I was saying was actually working until William told his Auntie Dawn that mommy was mean, "she won't let me do anything." now that made me smile. My Mommy is so proud of me!!!!
