"This room is a pigsty" said to a teenager.. I have heard that countless time as I grew up. As a matter of fact, I once had a Miss Piggy left in my closet with a note attached that said "please even I can't take it anymore" (she's so funny)
"There is PLENTY of food in the house" Said to the kid who just announced "theres nothing to eat in this house! and i am going to starve!" usually said because the twinkie box is empty.
"please don't bite the dog" ok it was only one time i had to say that. and i am not sure my mom ever said that about the dog... my brother.. probably.. but never the dog.. too hairy
"I am not HEATING/ACing VA! Close the door" Yes, i have said it... i am mortified.. but i have said it.
"Just wait til your father gets home!!" Usually said to Rocky as his head spins off its axis. And i am trying to figure out how to exorcise the demons.
and my favorite...
"do you think money grows on trees??" said to any of the kids as i get asked for one thing or the other.
You see.. I am becoming my mother. At first it scared me, but then I realized.. I am not so bad... it could be worse. I could be Joan Crawford (I don't fear wire hangers my kids are fine.. promise), I could be anyone of those crackhead moms you see on Cops, but in the end.. I am MY mom and I am really ok with that.
