The signs are all there. Someone tells you your laugh is starting to sound like hers, your hands start to resemble hers, and if you’re a parent, maybe you find yourself parenting like her, asking yourself what would Mom do? The signs all point to yes–you are indeed turning into your mother. And you’re okay with that. In fact, it’s an honor.
Today, a few days shy of Mother’s Day, we celebrate the traits we inherited from our mamas and the ones we hope to pass on to our own children one day. We invited 13 women to ask their mama, what traits did I inherit from you? Their answers are below.
“I think that Sara inherited my athletic skill and creativity tendencies to try “crafty” activities. You (Cristina) inherited my organizational skills and the ability to not show stress when things get crazy. Both of you got the independence streak that I inherited from my mother.” -Lucia, Mother to Sara and Cristina
-Celeste, Mother to Meghan
