5 Signs That We Are Turning Into Our Parents…

10 Jul

*Disclaimer: In no way am I implying that there is anything wrong with becoming our parents.  God has blessed me with wonderful parents, step-parents, and parents-in-law.  Mama, do not call me up asking, “What is wrong with being like me?”*

1.  Just yesterday, Jason yelled to the kids, “You need to either go outside or stay inside!  If you come back in the house you are putting on your pajamas and going to bed! And close the door behind you!”

2. If anyone calls our house after 9:00 p.m. we scowl and sigh and say, “Who is calling us this late?” However, we will call your tail at 7:00 in the morning without a second thought.  We just assume that no one sleeps past 6:30 anymore.

3. We called the police on the people who were setting off fireworks late at night on the beach outside our hotel.  I know, I know, that is terrible, but when you are sharing a room with a crying baby who keeps being awakened by the loud bangs, you gotta do what you gotta do.

4. My daughter (and, ok, sometimes my son) wears my heels more than I do.

5. We are considering canceling our satellite TV because the only channels we watch are Fox News and the History Channel, but we aren’t sure about that newfangled Hulu.

    I’m the same with the phone rule. Don’t you dare call after 9 or during dinner! But, I will call you as early in the morning as I want to and I don’t care if I wake you up!

      I hate when people call during dinner! That is so annoying.

        I know! It’s like you should know not to call between 6 and 7 because that is usually dinner time. Pretty much, call me either at 7 a.m. or between 8 and 9 p.m.!!!

        Our phone hours are pretty specific! Basically, just don’t call us.

    Next you will be telling kids to get off your lawn!! And we love hulu. We are dropping direct tv and only using netflix and hulu. It is saving almost $1000 per year.
