    Well, Cathy’s definitely got the “mother” phrases down!

    I agree Susan. It’s a bummer passing down a bad mother. As much as I have tried she comes out in me sometimes. As for nagging, nobody likes to be told what to do. Happy weekend all.

    I’ve often wondered if I’d had kids, would I have been like my mom? I sure hope not!

    Don’t forget about the other half of the equation — the Parent’s Curse. You know, the one that goes, “I hope you have a kid who’s just like you!” That one ALWAYS comes true — it did for my mother, my aunts, and my two brothers who had kids. It makes me shudder to think what I’d have gotten if I’d had kids, because I’d have ended up with a bunch of smart-mouthed know-it-alls! LOL

    And that’s one of the reasons that I wanted kids… so that I could do what I wished my parents would have (or what I wished they didn’t do). I’m not always perfect, but I can at least say that I’ve tried to improve the cycle. Plus, when I see bratty kids, I know that it’s possible to raise good kids who have manners and that I’ve done my part.

    Good morning, Cathy clan!

    My husband’s parenting policy is ALWAYS to ask himself “What would my father do here?” and then do the exact opposite. He’s a great dad, and I would never have even considered having kids with anyone else. BTW, my daughter is exactly like I was at 16, and she’s eight. She’s also adopted. I don’t know what that’s all about.

    I admit that I can be a nagger at times but I do it in a loving way. I laugh and play with my children while also being firm. I always wanted children since I was a little girl because I didn’t get to remember life with my mother and father. I was raised by an aunt and uncle who barely hugged me or told me they loved me. I do that daily with my children. Sorry for the sob story, back to your regular programming.
    Good afternoon, Cathy clan!

    Wha’cha bet that your daughter will have a kid who acts like herself at 8 but your grandaughter will do it at 4!
    Yikes! Scary!

    [Sigh] … I’ll just leave it at that.

    OK, fine—I’ll toss in an [eye-roll] for good measure.

    HI, MOM. Hello, “Cathy” Clan.
