My mother have said these things many of times.

You must be the twin that I was told about as our birth date is the same to boot.

I know a few people who have the same birthdate, or within a day or two.

Another one my mom would say if all 7 of us were giving her a hard time was: "You're gonna drive me to drink!" ... We've talked about how saying some of those quotes these days could land a mother in jail...LOL.

I use to say #25 to my youngest daughter all the time. It worked!!!

I can't even count the number of times I heard #25!

Well, I did have a kid who turned out a lot like me. He's 24, and a 3rd year electrical apprentice. Works for the same company I do. He'll very likely be one of those guys who's running work while he's still an apprentice.

I'm VERY proud of him!

Rob

P.S. My mom and dad and I laugh about #25 a lot!
