Though not a parent myself, I am actually watching our mother's curse (as indicated in this book's title) work on my kid brother. My brother, George, and his wife have a four-year-old terror, Briar Anthony. One evening while on the telephone with my brother interrupted my conversation saying, "hold on a sec, bro, I've got to tend to someone." Then came mutters that nostalgically reminded me of my father, "Do'oh! God! Hey! How many times do I have to say no! Quiet!" My brother came back to the phone, "Lou, you still there?" I said, "Yes." My brother continued, "I think mom's curse worked about having kids just like ourselves. I swore I wouldn't be like mom or dad in dealing with my kid, but I'm finding myself turning into dad more and more each day!" Chalk one up for the mother's curse. --- Louis Mendez, editorial.
