'the legacy lives on'

I called my mom today to relate one of the many SillyShawShenanigans and ended with "I am in fact turning into my mother." to which she replied, "it sounds better if you say 'the legacy lives on' ..."
What was the most recent episode you ask?!
This past Fast Sunday it was testimony time in sacrament meeting and Abi was up on the stand waiting her turn and started fiddling around, talking to the 2 kids that were waiting also and she getting a little out of hand. I was trying to stare her down and 'will' her to look at me when all of a sudden I heard myself clear my throat. Abi looked directly at me and got the message to sit still and be reverent. The reason this was so funny is because I can pick my mom's 'ahem' out of a crowd and I always knew if she was 'ahem'-ing me I better shape up ... ahh the legacy lives on!
What legacies are you passing on??
