Call it luck, call it a curse, call it genetics. Call it what you like, but the truth is that as we get older, we all see shades of our mothers in ourselves. It's discovering which bits and pieces you've inherited that makes it interesting. What do you think? Do you see yourself turning into your mother? Or do you wish you could be more like her? Share your answers on the message board.

Here's what 18 other iVillagers have to say on the subject:

"For the last few years I have heard that I am a lot like my mom, and I am proud when I hear those words because she is one hell of a lady! We even fool people on the phone when I answer. They think it's her every time!" --iVillager morningglory

"My kids have been told to tie a plastic bag over my head if I even remotely behave like she does." --iVillager cherrypie068

"The truth is that I may look like her, but I am not cold to my kids like she was. And I don't play favorites." --iVillager hopefaith2000

"Every day I find myself saying the exact same things that my mom used to say to me when I was little! It's scary, but she is a wonderful mom so I don't mind at all. It worked for me so hopefully it will work for my kiddos too." --iVillager kellyw99

"Yes, and I love it! My mother is the best. Educated, well-mannered and sassy when need be. I love when someone tells me I am like my mother." --iVillager suitelady_sw

"My mother is the best cook and baker in the world. If I got anything from her, it's my love for cooking. I hope I learn to bake like her one day!" --iVillager sugrmagnolia
