    Starting To Sound Like My Mother.......

    Two of my boys have just had a huge scrap, fists, feet and bad language......stepped in between them and shouted " Im gonna bang your heads together in a minute" followed by " I will give you something to cry about in a minute! "
    Oh my.........Im turning into my mother :-0

    Anyone else find themselves saying stuff like this? Are there any little gems your parents used to say to you that really made no sense?

    I'm not sure if it counts, but my sneezes are supposed to sound identical to my mum's.

    I always end up saying "it'll end in tears" just like my gran used to say!

    I never understood the one she said that went...

    Don't you come crying to me when you get run over.......

    Used to play in middle of road.!!

    I keep finding myself saying things my mum used to say.. it's quite disturbing! lol

    If you fall off that and break your leg don't come running to me!
