    When my kids were young, they used to pretend they didn't know that I was their mother when I brought things to events in laundry baskets.

    It does my heart SOOO much good when I see THEM bringing things to events in laundry baskets. With their names on them!

    I have those " OMG I sound like my mom" moments myself. I do notice when the kids do things like I did while they grew up. So funny. Now the GKs are following. Just love passing things on.

    Parents are role models, too bad some assume such bad roles!! :(
    The lucky kids are the ones who complain about things as mundane as clothes baskets!! :D

    After teen years of swearing they would raise THEIR kids different,
    both my daughters said that when they opened their mouths to their kids, they heard MY voice come out, saying the very same thing I'd said to them.

    I just smile and think "Gotcha!!!"

    Next time they arrive with a laundry basket, you should pretend not to know THEM! :D :D

    I bought my daughter an appropriate sign - "Just when my daughter realized her mother was right she has a daughter who thinks she is wrong."

    I can't get the grin off my face!!!!!

    I'm really trying - but it won't go away.

    Will probably think of this every time I look at the laundry basket. Thanks for the smile.
