Momversation: Am I Turning Into My Mother?


This time on Momversation, I'm the instigator of the conversation. My question: am I turning into my mother?

Actually, in my case, it's my father. As time goes on, my knee-jerk parenting responses resemble his more and more. Which is odd, because I'm nothing like him. Or am I?

Joining me: Heather of Dooce, Rebecca of Girl's Gone Child, and the newest Momversationalist, Giyen Kim of Bacon Is My Enemy.

My sister always complains that she doesn't want to be like our mother, but in the last couple years, she's been turning rapidly into her. I wouldn't mind being my mother since she's so amazing. :)
