    Greetings from England.

    LOL I wonder how many of us have heard, in one form or another those sayings as kids. And then turned around and said the same thing to our children LOL.

    I enjoy reading your blog.

    My mother taught me about WEAKNESS..."you're grounded!" 2 hours later "oh all right I'll let you off the hook, but don't you do it again!" I spent my entire childhood getting grounded everyday for about 5 minutes. I guess I just had too cute a face to punish. Hahahahaha!!!
