what traits have you adopted from your mother?

i got my mom's penchant for keeping things in order. but i think i might be bordering on the obsessive compulsive. she's a total neat freak, and so am i. she also likes to do things her way, which is how i like to do things as well. she likes to talk a lot when she's in a light mood which is the same way about me. the one thing i did not inherit from her is her knowledge of cooking. *sigh* i guess the ability to cook is not hereditary ( at least in my case). :p what did you get from your mom? :D

good: what i got from my mom is that, my mom is well organized - she also plans ahead of time,she is also kind to other people, very patient. bad: i got my mom's asthma, her sensitivity and her over-kindness... and same as you i wish i got my mom's baking.. sigh

the traits i got from mom are hard working, family oriented and self sacrificing. i grew up with only one parent who stood up raising the four of us all by herself. she had a lot of sacrifices and so i guess that's one thing i inherited. i started working at 19 years old as an RN. a year after, i had some part time job offers and grabbed them to help financially. and all these hard works and sacrifices are done so centered and exclusively for the goodness of the family.
