    Yes but sometimes I HEAR myself, like in the third person! Yeuchh! And sometimes my 4 year old daughter parrots me - she says 'It drives me up the bl§@"dy wall'! Yes, I'm sorry, she gets that from me! Now she even swears in French - the other day she was colouring and went outside the lines and said, well, the French equivalent of the f word! She does not get that from me, I only swear in English! :D

    So funny, and the last one is true. I laugh every day as my daughter tries to cope with the same things I had to with her.
