Mirror Mirror on the Wall - I AM My Mother After ALL!

I turned 27 years old in July and I must say I never gave much thought to the common stereotype of women turning into their mothers when they grow up.  I'm sure there have been times when I swore I'd never become mine...  But lo and BEHOLD!  I have more in common with my mother than ever!  I look like her and I've picked up most of her odd habits!  I have no idea how this transformation is taking place!  I always considered myself a unique individual, but I am becoming MINI MOM!  Why?  What is it about women that makes them become little clones of their mothers?!  It seems miraculous and strange to me!

There are still things we do not share in common.  My love of crafting is a prime example.  My mother is not a creative person, and has no interest in anything that requires a design sense or fine motor skills.  And she isn't very much like her OWN mother... so what gives?  I caught a glimpse of myself in a mirror today and I thought it was my mommy!  haha!  Anyone care to share your theories about how and why this so often happens?  It's pretty fascinating!!



  1. My mom and I are definitely different... but there are many times where I feel like I am picking up some of her tendancies. haha! I don't think we can avoid it!

  2. This might even be creepier, but sometimes I look at myself in the mirror and physically see my dad. Now THAT is scary!

  3. oh man, I snarffed coffee out of my nose when I read that lol.

    I used to have moments like that, but the older I get the more it seems like my mother just cloned me...
