Here's a question for you... what moment was it when you as a parent.... did or said something and stopped and said...."Whoa, I just became my mom...." I did this a couple years ago with my son... when I said to him, "How many times do I have to repeat myself".... and stopped in my tracks and had tons of flashbacks of being told that....LOL --at that moment I became my mom!!

LOL! Been there too! Whenever I've heard myself say: "When I was your age..." "Just wait until your father gets home..." "I don't CARE what the other kids do..." "I am not HER mother, I'm YOUR mother and I say..." among other things, I just laugh at myself. Yep, I swore I wouldn't become my mom but in many ways I have. Now that I'm old enough to appreciate just how great she was when she was alive and just how wonderful a parent she was, I finally realized it's a compliment to be like her. Just took me awhile to get there! *grin*
