Little Girls Grow Up To Be Like Their Mommies

The older I get, the more often I catch myself mid-sentence sounding exactly like my mother. Fortunately, the older I get, the more I respect my Mom and appreciate her and all her quirks and how wonderful she is.

After a round of golf, dinner and frozen custard last night, Mom and I were driving around town, and every time I said “turn left,” I meant, “turn right,” and vice versa. I did this about 20 times before I threw a minor temper tantrum of frustration with my silly brain.

Mom said, “yeah, I know what you mean. I’ve been putting my clothes on backwards lately.”

So, if you see me a few years from now with my shirt and pants on backwards heading left when I meant to go right, you know where I got it…

  1. Oh my gosh!! I love it. I realized Saturday night when Gif and I were at dinner with my mom at a little BYOB Italian restaurant that we both made sure to bring the Chardonnay and we both ordered Salmon Piccata. I am totally her! 🙂

  2. Of course, I feel the same way as you both 🙂 I guess that’s why I love your Mom’s too!! I’m glad someone else turns right when they mean left and vice versa.

  3. Haha! When I read Courtney’s comment, I was going to sign in and say that Court, Jen and I are ALL turning into our Mommies! Love it.
