Are You Turning Into Your Mother? 18 Clues from 18 Women Who Are

18 Clues from 18 Women Who Are

"I'm fortunate enough to work part time, something she never could do, so I'm free to be at school more and do more community service. These are things she taught me to do while she worked full time and raised three children! She is a wonderful woman, mother, wife, grandmother, daughter and even a wonderful mother-in-law according to my hubby. I'm really lucky to have a mother I can communicate honestly with and enjoy." --iVillager beck34

"Becoming a mom has made me just like my mom. I used to be completely carefree and it drove her nuts! Now that I'm a mom of two (son 10, daughter 8) and I'm more responsible, but a bit of a nervous wreck when my children are outside on their own." --iVillager masully

"I always hoped I would be nothing like my mother and it turns out I'm like her in a lot of ways. We both want to be in charge, are very outspoken and pretty impatient. I guess that explains why we used to clash so much." --iVillager allstar22

"I have a lot of my mother's mannerisms. Even though I haven't lived near her for the last, oh, 24, 25 years! That has to say something for the nature vs. nurture argument!" --iVillager pusskin

"When I walk into a room, my dad often has to do a double-take because he thinks I'm my mom! I am a mirror image of her but I got my business sense from my dad -- and that's a good thing!" --iVillager jeckie

"I always tease my mom about me looking like my dad on the outside, but having her all of her interior characteristics! She is blond and petite. I am dark and tall. She has delicate facial features and I have a Roman nose. She has thin hips and legs, mine are -- different! But we think exactly alike. She can tell what I'll say to almost any given question and she feels the same. She can actually select clothes that I like and are flattering on me. We have the same interests in hobbies. We even are in the same line of work. She administers anesthetics in surgery and I assist the surgeon's during procedures. The really strange thing is that when I was a teen, I thought my Mom had the worst taste in everything! One day she brought me home an old plate with a saying on it. It said, "Someday teenagers will be as dumb as they think their parents are." Not only did that saying turn out to be true, but I'm really proud to be my mother's daughter. I love you, Mom!" --iVillager nonohages
