So did you turn out like your mother (or father) anyway?

Mom and I -  Mother and daughter laughing, I even laugh like she laughs!

I know I did along with a lot of other teenagers say to myself I'm not going to be like my parents. Or I am not gonna ever do like they to, or treat my kids like like that. Maybe I thought they weren't cool enough or just plain corny in the way they did things. Going to bed early, taking vitamins, sitting on the porch or back yard doing nothing, watching the news same time every night, always following rules, turning all the lights out, budgeting money and not ever wasting anything. Not me, I was gonna be a cool grown up, blow some cash if I needed to, let my kids have their way, and understand them! I was gonna do thing, not just sit on the porch, I was just gonna different. Well as it turns out,humbly, I am just like my mom. I do believe I am just a tad more in touch with my children and their world but for the most part I do the same things she does. I find myself saying the same the same things she, and I have those little ways about her that no one else would notice. Who Knew! Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Let me see... I guess nope, I grew up with different people, mum and relatives alike. I was never been like my mum or my dad. Not to worry, I turned out good anyway...

Naw, my mother and i are total opposites. My sister now is exactly like her. She acts the same, everything, but i'm not but i like being the unique in the family because they never know what i'm thinking or what i'll do.

I have to say, I've definitely grown up to be my own individual. From a young age, I had a definite idea about the way things should or shouldn't be done or addressed, and apparently I still feel the same way.

I guess it would be safe to say we start our opinions in life at a very young age.
