As crazy as it sounds I never expected my kids to be so much like me.  My youngest is as stubborn and as strong-willed as they come.  He obeys me but pretty much no one else.  The other day I suddenly remembered an argument I had with my mother.  I don't remember what it was about but I clearly remember her saying "I hope you have a child just like you. "  Being the smart alec teenager I was I replied "Thank you!"   It was not a complement.   Ha!
