Writer's Workshop: Oh No, I'm My Mother!

I remember as a child when my mother and I would clash and disagree over something stupid, I would mutter under my breath that I would never, ever (!!) be like her.

Oh, how stupid I really was.

It didn't appear until I had my daughter. Slowly, but surely, I started noticed little ticks that reminded me of her. Things I wouldn't know I was doing until afterwards, or my husband pointed them out.

The main thing was, she once told me that a mother never stops loving. A mother never stops caring and a mother never keeps her nose out of your business.

And as I watch my daughter growing more and more everyday, I feel it.

I feel that love.

I feel that caring.

And most importantly, I feel the noisiness.

Thank you Mom, I love you.

Today's post was part of Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop.

Awww..that was sweet! I think I'm slowly turning into my mother sometimes too! Eeek!

Yup. I totally hear you, sister. My mom is a crazy lady, but I love how much she cares, and never stops loving me, even though I'm a giant pain in the ass.

I have said the same thing numerous times since birthing, and I hated that I had to say it!

I'm turning into my mom too, some days I hate it...some I realize it's not such a bad thing because she taught me so much about being a mom.
