What did your parents say to you that you thought you would never say to your kids?

My father use to say: Your Fresh, when I did something I shouldn't be doing. It use to drive me crazy, now I do it all the time. My mother always said your beautiful even when I was at my worst, I say that all the time to, I miss it. :)

  • My mom used to say " one day you'll have kids and you'll understand what I'm talking about". I SWORE to myself I wouldn't say it. But you guessed it. I do it all the time.

  • "Because I said so"...... I hated that when I was a kid and was like 'just give me a reason... a real, viable, good reason".... it wasn't until I had growing kids of my own that I realized sometimes the real, viable reason IS because I said so..... sometimes a parent just knows the answer is no. Call it intuition, call it discernment, but as it turns out " Because I said so" sometimes covers it all.
