(Insert your answer.......)
I don't know if anyone else has or is experiencing this. But as my brother keeps pointing out, my mannerisms, actions and sayings are becoming more and more like my mums EVERYDAY. I think it began when I used to answer the phone as a teenager, people would say 'you sound just like your mum' But these days it has reached new extremes...
Please share your experiences !!
...when you see see someone who looks like her on the other side of a shop and then realize it is a mirror.
LOL! Bet she was nice though!
When you realise you've just spent three-quarters of an hour complaining about your minor ailments, whilst your companion looks like they are wishing they could chew through the back wall of the kitchen to get away from you.
hey - that is what happens to me - everytime I look into the mirror - sometimes its scarey! I try not to look in a mirror in the middle of the night - that is too, too frightening!
It's impossible for me to. My mother is precisely that a mother, which means she is a she, a woman. I am her son, so that requires quite a bit to take place.
OH! no, something I don't ever want to happen, she cribs so much and says only negative things!! Please don't say anything .....
are you sure? haven't you ever seen guys who act exactly like the male version of their mothers? It's really impossible to live with someone your whole life and NOT absorb a lot of their traits and mannerisms. And it isn't all negative. Most men get alot of their altruism and positive attitudes from their moms, and they really admire her for it. There's nothing wrong with that - nothing wrong with taking on those positive "feminine" characteristics like ideals and good manners and cleanliness!
Whenever I clean the kitchen, I feel like my mom - I mutter to myself about the grease and "jobs that never get done" just like she did!
WOW! You cannot even see humor when it is in the form of words. *hand to face*
you were joking? I never know when you're joking - you use those stupid little smileys all the time! so how would I know - just a thought!
considering your finger-pointing - self-righteous I would call it. And I don't laugh at the same things you do, so what? I also think most of your b.s. is b.s. so what? I'm sure the feeling is mutual. Let us just agree that we disagree and climb off the b.s. wagon, ok? or not - doesn't matter but give it a little rest now and then with all the accusations ok, cags?
Nah, just get a sex change first....or an avatar change!
everytime you yell at you kids you sound exactly like she did yelling at you!! "Wipe that silly smirk off your face, Do you think I am telling you this just to hear myself talk"
Those are two of my mom's most popular sentences from when I was a kid, and now I find myself saying them to my kids along with alot of other things she would say. SCARY:)
Just accept the reality of the morphing. It happens to all of us. I have put a smile on mine. It is a connection to my mother who has passed on, and those similarities that at one time annoyed me, now comfort me.
When I found myself down on my child's level, asking, "Is that how you are suppose to be behaving?"
Seeing someone in the mirror who looked just as I remember my mom looking and realizing it was me... even the clothing colors were the same.
My son reminds me with a form of pity that I've never had the 'cool' gene, and when I look at my hands. I'm actually very proud to become a version of my mom. Oh, and my voice is throaty just like hers, every salesperson that's ever phoned calls me 'sir,' no matter how hard I try to put a bit of feminine lilt into it!
when my kids complain that i am a geek, or loser or other such loving phrases (usually by text) I text them back two words "it's hereditary" usually shuts them up. ( honestly they are loverly children)

Is it wrong NOT to believe in God?For every positive there is a negative, so if you do not believe in God, there would be no Devil. If there is no Devil, would this world be a better place?
