I find that I am growing more into my mother every day. I say things like she says them. I do things like she does them. When I was a teenager, I promised myself that I would NEVER (ever!!) do things like my mom. I think every teenaged girl does.
I get sheer joy out of going to Meijer (our grocery store). I like to go late at night, ALL BY MYSELF!!!!! I am my mother.
When I laugh at something, sometimes I cannot breathe and I end up poking the person next to me for no apparent reason (don't laugh Jen...so do you). I am my mother.
Today I was getting in the shower and Camden was supposed to be taking a nap. I heard my mother's voice when I said, "Can't I just shower in peace????" Oh dear! Here we go again.
I wrinkle my nose when something doesn't sound pleasant or smell pleasant or just is not a good idea. So does my mom.
Next thing you know I will have to go to the bathroom every 10 minutes. Thanks, mom!
Seriously, I don't mind being like my mom....it's funny how a few years and having kids changes that.
