so there is a mother's curse. when you grow up i hope you have a child just like you. i know why mother's do this. it's because we grow up, to do so many things, just like them. it's their validation. pretty sneaky, huh? that being said, it has to be obvious my children are awesome. [they are just like me.] but does that excuse them for mocking me when i vacuum the kitchen floor? [just like my mom?] they are grounded.
