I have never understood why so many women resist becoming like their mothers. It's inevitable, we all become like the woman who raised us and instilled in us her values.
I guess I have never resisted it because I was never embarrassed by my mom, I wanted her at all my events and activities because I love her and I look to her for a lot of strength. Being on the volleyball court during a stressful game and being able to look over to the stands and see my mom more nervous than me was always the boost I needed to play harder and be better.
I want to be like my mom, she's fantastic! Although I have unfortunately inherited her minor hoarder tendencies, I am eternally grateful for her good qualities I have as well. I have often told friends that I'm terrified of being a mom because there is no way I could compare to the amazing job my sweet momma did.
It's not worth the fight, we all become them so why not embrace it! I'm just glad she's not insane!
