Who was your biggest influence or example as how to be a good wife and mom from when you were growing up ?
I taught myself. I didn't have a very good role model. My mom was hyper-critical of my dad and loved/loves drama. I tried to figure out if I was a man what kind of wife would I want and have tried to be that kind of wifey. Hubby says he's a lucky dog, so I must be doing a decent job.
no one. my mom wasn't married and my grandma was like a stepford wife doing absolutely everything for my grandpa so I didn't really have a good example. lol
the 'mom' part from raising my brothers & sister, sadly, the 'wife' part from my first husband. He taught me to serve, hate myself and think I was a terrible, ugly person who didn't deserve life. Second DH is helping me get over that... hard to break a habit 33 years old...
I learned how to be a mom from my grandmother really. She raised me. But being a wife I kind of had to learn on my own.
