As parents of a delightful and vibrant 4 year old (going on 40), my wife and I constantly find ourselves re-using phrases that our parents used (in vain) on us. This regularly brings a smile to my face and I frequently pause to ponder about our own parent’s emotions back then, and how they must feel now looking at us going through the same thing.
I guess if I find myself witnessing history repeating itself once more in 20-30 years time, I’ll have passed on a little magic of my own, and may even be able to answer my own question.
With this in mind, my brother-in-law sent me this fine piece of art that captures many of the everyday phrases that our mothers undoubtedly used on us all. Enjoy!
