I'm not really sure when it happened, but I have been morphed into my mother.
I find myself saying the following things that I thought I would NEVER say:
"Don't sit so close to the tv, you'll hurt your eyes."
"If you keep making that face, it's going to stay like that."
"Hear those sirens?  The police are coming for you."
"One of these days he's going to be bigger than you."
"You can't go outside like that, you'll catch a cold."
"We're you born in a barn?"
"If I've told you once, I've told you a thousand time."
If everyone else jumped off a bridge, would you?"
"I'm warning you!"
"Do we need to go to the bathroom?"
"Mind your manners."
"There's kids in ________ starving!"
"This place is a pigsty."

I have a feeling the following aren't far behind
"Just you wait until we get home."
"Stop crying before I give you something to cry about."
"Life's not fair!"

I'm sure I'm leaving lots out!  What are some things that your mom used to say that you swore you would never say, but have found yourself saying it after having children yourself?

I think I've used many of those same things. My favorite is once I used the line, "How old are you?" because they did something dumb and they replied back, "Two." B/c that's how old she actually was. Duh!
