So did you turn out like your mother (or father) anyway?

I know I did along with a lot of other teenagers say to myself I'm not going to be like my parents. Or I am not gonna ever do like they to, or treat my kids like like that. Maybe I thought they weren't cool enough or just plain corny in the way they did things. Going to bed early, taking vitamins, sitting on the porch or back yard doing nothing, watching the news same time every night, always following rules, turning all the lights out, budgeting money and not ever wasting anything. Not me, I was gonna be a cool grown up, blow some cash if I needed to, let my kids have their way, and understand them! I was gonna do thing, not just sit on the porch, I was just gonna different. Well as it turns out,humbly, I am just like my mom. I do believe I am just a tad more in touch with my children and their world but for the most part I do the same things she does. I find myself saying the same the same things she, and I have those little ways about her that no one else would notice. Who Knew! Does this sound familiar to anyone?
