Mothers and Daughters

momandme

Without a doubt I’m my mother’s daughter. The older I get the more I realize I’m becoming like my mom. It seems like anytime we’re out in public together we have at least one person say “there’s no mistaking that you two are mother and daughter,” or something along those lines. When I went home for summer last May I was able to spend a few school days in my mom’s classroom and nearly every single one of her students told me how much I looked like her. I even got mistaken for her a couple of times!

I’m becoming like my mom in more ways than just my looks though. Not only am I following in her footsteps to become a teacher, but I’ve inherited many of her characteristics. To name a few…

I’m quiet, but I’m not a pushover.

I’m a total homebody.

I laugh at myself all the time.

I handle stress really well.

I have a mama heart.

Those are just the traits that I thought of first. I’m sure I’ll be able to look back in the future and see even more characteristics of mine that resemble her.

Which of your parents do you look the most like? Have you found yourself becoming more like your mother?

I look exactly like my mom when she was my age. However I am my dad's child. I got his personality the I can friends with anyone, quiet, and humor. :)

When I was little, I looked just like my mum. Now, people who knew me when I was in my early school years meet my little sister who is 4, and say she is exactly like me at the same age. But since I was about 11 or 12, perfect strangers have felt to tell me I look just like my Dad. And I love my Daddy, so that's okay! :) I get my humour and introverted-ness from him... and my love for paper! And music, and purposeful relationships. It's a good thing... I do have quite a good dose of my Mum's spunk though and have a bossy-cow streak in me! :) God and me are working that one out...!

I am totally my mother's daughter...I am always catching myself saying her 'mom'isms. We also both have the same outgoing (and sometimes stubborn) personality! But I often get told I am like her.

My Mom and I are best friends. We are a lot alike, but definitely polar opposites in many areas. I do see myself doing a lot of the things she has done....Turning into a homebody, going to be before 9 because I am TIRED and waking up way too early....

People always know we are mother and daughter. Always.

Oh wow, you and your mom look so much alike! I've always been told that I look like my mom and the other day I made a very dry joke and Jared told me I had my mom's sense of humor. I often find myself doing things that I think are like her. And she gave me her love for crafty things. :)
