So You Think You Know It All

Written for  the Write Tribe 100 words prompt and the letter S for ABC Wednesday

"So you think you know it all"

I don't know how many times my mother said that to me and at the time I looked at her and thought she was crazy. Of course I know it all!

Then the years went by and I had my kids. Then I caught myself saying those words and getting the "mom is crazy look". Of course we know it all.

And now I can't wait for them to have their children so they can say the same words and get back that "you are crazy" look.

And I will watch and chuckle.
~x~

                                                                     
Have a fun filled day with lots of chuckles.

Warm Regards
