I have a couple kids, and I always said as I grew up, that I was "going to do things differently than my parents". It's beginning to ring hollow in my head now. While obviously, we learn from the mistakes, I catch myself too often thinking...(did I just say that, that sounded just like my dad) ugh. Is it possible that there was actually wisdom in some of their ways, oh how I would rather not admit it.
What are you gonna do?!
