Like Mother, Like Daughter

My mom and I are very close, but I didn't feel so close to her, when I was a teenager. I thought she was nosey, "in my business', and that she was ruining my life. I vowed when I had my own children I would never do this or never do that. Well, that didn't happen. I hated it when I asked my mom something and she said "Go ask your father" I do that all the time!

I hated it when my mom would tell me "to stay in a child's place".....say that all the time

I hated it when my mom would lick her finger and wipe something off of my face....find myself doing that all the time

I hated it when my mom would preach to me, and nowI do it all the time

I hated it when my mom told me to do something and I said why, she would always say bECAUSE I SAID SO...oh I hated that and now I say it all the time.

I hated it when my mom had to meet all of my friend parents before I could go anywhere, I thought it was so embarrasing, and now I do the same thing.

My mom used to yell and scream at us....and I do alot of yelling sometimes, and I catch myself because I think to myself, boy am I turning into my mother.

I hated this phrase "No, That's it, that's all" .....use it on the daily

My mom never allowed me to say "What" to her, never understood it, until I had my own kids, and I think saying what is so SARCASTIC and SMART ASS!

I do alot of things I claimed I would never do, but sometimes, as much as we hate to admit it, we TURN into OUR MOMS when we become

I can relate to many of those things you mentioned! I think the other thing we have to admit as we get older, is simply that our parents were often right and did know what they were talking about - it just didn't feel like it at the time!

That is so funny Dana! I bet I'll do the same thing when I become a Mom. Even now I say things and I sound so much like here and it kind of freaks me out. You and your Mom look alike too! I bet you hear that all the time.
