Speaking of moms, are you like yours? What regretable thing have you inherited?

It is a rather unpalatable revelation that as I age, I am indeed, more like my mom. You?

I have become a little persnickety about things like my mom but I don't yet bitch about everything in a restaurant. She is always displeased.

  • Mine died when I was 14 of colon cancer. I hope I don't inherit that trait. I got my horrible eyesight from her though.

  • Oh god no. I am the polar opposite of my mom
    I've never told my son that if he eats at school,he doesn't need to eat until lunch the next day,and that expecting 3 meals a day is asking too much.

  • I'm so afraid of becoming my mother. The thought really scares me and I hope it never happens.

  • In a way, yes, I am becoming my mom.

    On Sundays all tvs have to be off. Just like my mom. I play my gospel and we play games, until about 5 or 6. I don't know when I started doing it but here I am doing it lol.

  • I have the perfection syndrome, I will do it myself, because you won't be able to do it the WAY I want it done! Trying very hard to be better about this, lol

  • I see a little of my mom in me, but actually as I get older I'm finding that I am less like her. I try not to be so hard on her now though because she is very, very ill and I'm not sure how much longer she'll be with us.

  • I have some of the same insecurities as my mom, mostly because she told me how fat I was from the age of 8. I work hard to not be like her. She is so negative and nothing ever pleases her. Not to mention that she can get the flu over the phone from talking to my kids (but isn't really sick) and then questions me when I am (uh, have 3 kids.)
