When we were growing up, like most kids, we *hated* veggies .. our mother used to come up with tricks every other day to make us eat our share of veggies (no, french fries were not considered a "vegetable" by her - even though we argued they were made out of potato , which qualified as a "root" ). When everything else failed, she used to put her "mom's foot down" and we had to eat the veggies that were on our place.
I recall me and my sisters muttering - we will *never* to this to our children .. guess what, 28yrs later, yesterday, I found myself trying to arrange a "Face" using carrots & peas. When that didn't work, I tried to come up with a game - which failed too and finally, I found myself saying 'I am putting my special 'mom's' foot down' ... Oh My God ! I never thougth I would be saying this ever !!! I called my mom immediately :)
With the mother's day approaching - would you like to share some anecdotes which made you pause and think "oh my god, I am my mother" ! ? I am a new mom and I, for one, would be really interested in these ...
Oh My God - I sound just like my mother !!
