We had the weather report for snow. So what did I do?.... Went straight to the shop for bread and milk. I am turning into my mother!
Would like to know if anyone else has ever done something and thought the same I.e realised you were doing the same as your parent (s) and felt like you were turning into them?

When somebody says "Mummy, where is my...?" I don't say "I don't know" anymore. I say "Where you left it!" because I have turned into my mother.

The other day I said ' once it's gone,it's gone'! Cringed as i heard it come out my mouth.

Ever time I look in the mirror. Other than that, although I read The Fail (just for administrative purposes, clearly grin ) I don't believe everything it says. There ends the similarity.

When I said 'That child needs a vest!'

When i realised that pretty much everything I say to DS is word for word what my mum said to me. Gems include "don't say what, say pardon", "take your coat off (indoors) or you won't feel the benefit when you go out" and "don't sit so close to the telly or you'll get square eyes". I am officially my mother.

When I said to my teenage ds -" do you think your talking to one of your pals in the street " ?? blush

Feel horrible about this, but it's when I said to DD "YOU'RE crying... I'm the one who should be crying" and I remember DM saying this to me when I was under 4 and being horrified by the thought that my mother could cry (who knew!). And I perpetrated it. Bad me!

Not long as your name isn't Brian!

I'm very similar my Mum in practically every way and I'm extremely proud of that, although she was a lot more disciplined and patient than I am! She was the most adored person I've ever known.

It could be worse op : I am my dad in a dress.

For OP

Yes me too, when I start ranting at the news reporter as though they're talking directly to me, then I realise I'm turning into my dad blush.

And I realise that we are both nuts.

SniffyFlukkins Fri 13-Jan-17 06:37:50

' It's may I not can I, yes you can but...' . ( I know both are apparently grammatically correct but I'm my mother).

I've always been my mother. And she's pretty fantastic so I'm ok with that. There's enough of my Dad in me to make me different enough to make things interesting.

My DD is already me although her Daddy's genes have made her tall and beautiful.

Every woman turns into her mother, that is her tragedy. No man does, that is his. Oscar Wilde

As I like to say. You'll never be half the man your mother is

My mum always leaves half drunk cups of tea around, it used to annoy me but now I do it too!

In general I don't think we are very similar though.

MissVictoria Fri 13-Jan-17 06:53:14

What's the obsession with bread and milk though? I can go weeks without using either. Everyone else i've ever met their household seems to go through it daily.
And i'm actually morphing into one being with my dad, we're so alike it hurts :P

MissVictoria Fri 13-Jan-17 06:53:50

Most specifically, i picked up his road rage, and i'm always just the passenger!

Sunnysky2016 Fri 13-Jan-17 09:02:10

Yes that was running to be shop! Lol although I did stand in the que and realise what I was doing and mentioned it to the other customers who all laughed (I'm in wales so it's the norm to strike up random conversations with strangers wink).

Reading through these reminded me I also say 'it's not nothink, it's nothing' an awful lot. I'm sure there is a lot more lol

Garaging we're not ranting..We have just always had interactive TV!!

Garaging was autocorrect, I meant badabing!
