    Both my daughters swore when teens that when THEY got married, they would never treat their kids like I do. That they would be charming friends to their kids!!! HA!

    Fast forward to when they were married with kids. Each one, in turn, called and told me that when they opened their mouths to speak to their kids, MY voice came out, saying the very same things I'd said to them.

    I just smiled.

    PAYBACK TIME!!!
