Mo Mo Momism

The words left Mo's lips. There's no turning back. She's irrevocably a mom.

"Be careful. I don't want her to poke an eye out."

I had lazily just handed Hope an impromptu toy: A used grape Popsicle stick, straight from my mouth. She dug it. Mo didn't.

It was a genuine Uh-Oh-She-Sounds-Just-Like-My-Mom moment. In no time flat, I'm sure, Mo is gonna break out the tried and true: "I don't care if everyone else is doing it. I'm only saying this because I care about you. Put on a sweater. Waste not, want not. And look at me when I'm talking to you."

I'm sure I never said, "Waste not, want not." Must've been Grandma Clem!! I'll admit to all the rest, plus a whole bunch of others. We'll expect a full report when Mo catches you sounding just like your father!

Hugs to all from Maine!
Grandma K.

Man, those pictures keep getting cuter and cuter! Keep 'em coming!

My personal favorite of Mom's WAS the ol' "I don't care if everyone else is doing it" line. Never gets old. I personally use it in variations at least once a week ... Old Faithful.
