    I've heard almost all of them and have used them a number of times on my own son. The problem with all of these little sayings is that eventually your children turn them back on you. When I criticize my son for anything that I consider to be outrageous, he replies, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." He's right about that one. He often reminds me of his father, my father, one or more of my male siblings, and at his worst, he reminds me of me.

    I have heard, and used a lot of these too! My mom said #25 so many times that after my 3rd kid I was like 'I've got (my sister's) kids, because I never acted like this! I said #26 at least twice on hour on a 14 hour roadtrip.
