Oh, Mama!

Who among us has never told their spouse that they’re sounding or, worse yet, acting just like one of their parents?  (Usually the mother, but sometimes the father.)  I don’t hear that too often, but when I do….boy howdy, them’s fightin’ words. 

I love this cartoon, so I created a Mother’s Day card with it for my mother-in-law. 

Inside it said “It could be worse…he could have turned into his father instead!”

She got a big kick out of it because she and my husband’s father were divorced many years ago, and he was not what you’d call a family man.   Now, aged 91, she has outlived her “ex” by almost ten years.  More than a month later, she still has the card displayed on the mantel over her fireplace.  Ha!
