Like Mother, Like Daughter

Mothers Day is fast approaching. List 5 things you do instinctively that your mother did. Then, List 5 things you have chosen to do differently. What do the 2 lists tell you about yourself and your mother?

My mom and I look a lot of alike and we are so much alike its not even funny. My mom and I are both the youngest of our siblings. My mom and I both have 3 children. My mom and I both had our first child at 18 years of age. My mom and I are both shopaholics.....especially shoes and purses. My mom and I both love movies. My mom and I both very loving and nurturing mothers. My mom and I both are not real big Kinda of pushovers, but her more than I . I will put my foot down most of the time. My mom and I both watch our soaps. My mom and I both were great at English and Reading, but sucked at Math. My mom and I are both big daredevils.... We both fight for what we believe in. My mom and I are avid readers. My mom and I are big screamers, I find my self yelling at the kids and then I catch myself and say boy am I turning into my mom.

We do have some difference, I am more of a trusting person, while my mom is much more cynical. I have been burned so many times too, for being trusting. My mom is a neat freak and every little thing has to be in its place, while I am not a slob, my house has a little more clutter and looks more lived in...her house is like a museum. My mom is into gangster movies like the Godfather and Scarface, while I am more of a horror fanatic. My mom doesn't let anything worry her, and I am a great worrier. My mom has always worked outside of the home, however I worked for a short while and now I am a stay at home mom. I don't think my mom could have ever been a stay at home mom. She is very well off.....and loves the finer things in life. She is very independent, strong woman and likes having her own money. I couldn't imagine her asking my dad for money and having to explain what is was for......NO WAy!! NOT MY MOM...LOL

Dana, you and your Mom sound WONDERFUL. My mother and I do not get along for reasons that will never change, but I hope my daughters feel the same way about me as you do your Mom. Oh, and scrappers are a force to be reckoned with!
