Mirror, Mirror

By Mabel Jones Gabbott

I need no mirror on the wall
To tell me I must mend my ways;
My daughter, playing with her doll,
Reflects each manner, tone, and phrase.

(1951)

  2. Ack! My daughter is seven months and I know that she will be mimicking me in no time. I really ought to start censoring myself.

  3. Oh, the truth, the awful truth . . . I “hear” my impatient voice in the ways my kids communicate with each other sometimes. [sigh]
