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!
