Just Like Your Mother . . .

Tok'ra (aka Book Worm) just informed me that she has recently realized that she sometimes does and says things that she's picked up from me. Then, jokingly, she covered her face with her hands and let out a small sob.

I had to laugh out loud. I know that I echo my mom sometimes, too. I'm sure that's where I got "nekkid".

LOL! Yesterday when Niks and I were having lunch with your girls at Friendly's, Bookworm told us this. I told her that if she ever wants to scared the beegeebees out of YOU, that she should say, "You're just like your Mom!"

Hey, I think imitating your mom is inherited. I hate when my mom stands outside of our home and puts her hands on her hips so that she looks like a vase (my mom is like 120 kilos and therefore can´t be overlooked) whenever she is cooking something up, about to yell my name or simply give the neighbours an evil eye. Anyways... people have pointed out to me that I do exactly the same whenever i am mad. I hate that!

Adorable.

This realization of being like our mothers can both frighten and enlighten us, depending on the day!

It's scary to see how they pick up our habits.

One of my favorites is when my middle daughter pulls all those annoying cards out of the magazines before she reads them.

Just like me.

Monika: yes, it's a shocker when you realize things like that! Especially when I repeat "parenting wisdom."

Barbara: I admit I'm not usually frightened, rather, I wish I were more like mom.

Fred: I do that to - they really annoy, don't they?

Sometimes I have a moment where I'm watching myself do exactly what my mother would do. Sometimes I'm proud. Sometimes I'm horrified, but there's nothing I can do to stop it. I think the best we can hope for is to be an equal mix of our mother, our father, and ourselves.

You and your nekkid ways. I'll bet your girls say nekkid too. Like mom, like daughters... it's the way it is.

I buy things the same way my father does. I tap the merchandise, look underneath it and give it a good shake. That technique hasn't helped me pick up better stuff, but if it's good enough for dad, well...

I think that we all become a little bit of our parents as we age. And I think, especially in your case, it's a GOOD thing. I find myself becoming more like my father also, which is weird and strange, but in a good way. funny how that happens. They have a very powerful influence on us.

*LOL* Me too. You know it's funny, my parents used to say things that I find myself saying because it works. Things like "You are never too big for me to take you down"...

Does everybobody say "nekkid" there?

My mother was a blessed saint and I would love to be just like her, heaven rest her soul.

Sorry to hear about your mother Soapy. REALLY, sincerely sorry.

I do NOT say nekkid, or have my house professionally debugged, or have a cleaning implement for every kind of surface, or paint everything whitewhite. I'm nothin' like my mamma.

LOL, Actonbell - isn't it funny how we grew up in a white-walled house and we make sure that we didn't have any (well, okay, I did later let one be white...)

And if we have any cleaning implements, it's 'cause DH got it, since he's the cleaner in this household.
