Who was your biggest influence or example as how to be a good wife and mom from when you were growing up ?
My mom and bio dad were already split up by the time I was 2 so I do not remember anything about that relationship. My mom kinda passed me around to everyone for several years , I guess she did not want to be a mom yet ? So I did not get much influence from her. It was my Aunt and Uncle that I learned what a healthy loving marriage looks like . It was also my aunt that I learned what kind of mother I wanted to be.
I would say I learned how to be a good wife on my own. I didn't have any real example. Maybe at most my Aunt Lori. Learning to be a good mother I learned what not to do from my mom, namely I show my kids affection and praise them.
i guess my mom would be my biggest influence. however, a lot of the way i live my life as a mom and wife have been based on how i wouldn't be when i got married/became a parent.

Yep. DH and I have figured it out together over the last 9 years.
I hope I explained it correctly , I think I did . I do indeed mean who was your biggest influence growing up regarding the mother and wife role.
