As early as college, I recall telling friends, "Why is it that when I open my mouth, my mother's voice comes out?"
I have said to my husband many times, "I hope you like my mother, because I am turning into her!" (Thankfully, he does love my mother).
As the years have passed, I find myself doing things like she does, thinking like her, looking like her, and sounding like her.
Today, it was all confirmed to me by my 4 year old. I said something to one of his siblings and he called from a room or two over, "Mom? Is Grandma here? I thought I heard her voice!"
It was just me. Just me, slowly turning into my mom. Which is all right with me, because she's a pretty great gal!!
