    I never thought I would be but I’ve noticed myself being exactly how my mom was may she rest in peace. She was an old Italian woman who always wanted to make sure I was eating. Everyday, she would call me and say “YOU EAT” in her Italian accent. I would love to hear her say that to me again. I have become just like my mother because I am doing the same to both my daughters, calling them everyday asking them “YOU EAT” ?
    Also always worrying where they are and if they are home or made it home from wherever they have been. I remember my mom not being able to sleep waiting up for me all the time. Seems I’m exactly like her. My daughters always tell me to stop but I say to them one day they will realize and be just like me as well as I was like my mom. I miss her so much 🙁 and wish I could hear her voice again. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there 🙂

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      Happy Mothers Day to you, too. Enjoy!

    • Mrs Ed

      Hey, Merm123, YOU EAT?! LOL, that was precious. And you know what. That is so natural. The first thing a mother does is feed their child, and in all the years we are blessed with that child, it’s what we do! We nurture and cherish and never take them for granted. I always wish I could hear my mother’s voice too, but then I realize that I DO hear her voice. It’s coming out of me!
      Happy Mother’s Day!

      • Merm123

        Sorry Mrs Ed to respond late on this as I just noticed it and was looking for the winner of this question but it doesn’t show up anywhere on the Past Contest Winners for this question. Happy Belated Mother’s Day to you too. Yes I so miss my mom. She was my best friend

  • Elaine

    We are both a clutterbug which is very messy!

    • Mrs Ed

      I like that, lol. “clutterbug” I’ll have to remember that word.

  • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

    In some ways I’m similar to my mom, though in other ways, not so similar. She did pass on the genes for autoimmune diseases. (Thanks, mom. Just kidding.) She was generous with the money she had, as I try to be. We both liked Scrabble, swimming, and going to the movies, to Broadway shows and on trips. We both liked to go to Atlantic City. We both didn’t care for cooking. But kids were raised differently back then. We now know that corporal punishment doesn’t work, and I would never want to lay hands on my kids. She was also obese, which led to diabetes and heart disease later in life. So I take all the good my mom taught me and discard the bad. I do miss my mom very much!

    • Mrs Ed

      Diane, I’m sorry for your loss. My mother is also gone, but I know I will see her again, in our Lord’s arms, in His timing.
      I too, inherited autoimmune disease from my mother and my grandmother.

      • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

        My grandma had it too (psoriatic arthritis), my sister has it, and I’m pretty sure my daughter has it. My mom never complained about anything. In that way we couldn’t be more different. I guess I’m a whiner. LOL

    • Sowmya

      I am sure, your mom is protecting you and your family Diane. Happy Mother’s Day!!

      • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

        Thanks, Sowmya! Happy Mothers Day to you, too!

  • Paul Clément

    Those in the know would say that I share my mom’s concern for her children, anxiety at confronting new situations and love as well as yearning for the comforts of home. She would often say when out and about: ”I can’t wait to put on my nightgown and relax in my chair”, whereas I, under similar circumstances cannot wait to get home, put on my pj’s and just veg in front of my tv.

  • Anaisha Altacho

    my mom and I both have the same body shape, she is just a little bigger then me. we both have the same face and eyes and lips and own feet looks alike and everybody always ask us if we are sisters because we look so alike

  • Julie Dascoli-Yanop

    Certain things I am exactly like my mother….however, if i could just be HALF the mother my mom has always been to me then I would be happy!!

  • Jason Pike

    My thick and my high check bones. Its great that i have all my thick hair.

  • Erin Estilette

    We are very much alike!! We have most of the same likes and dislikes.

  • Sylvia

    It’s like somebody cloned my mom and produced me. We’re almost 30 years apart in age which for me is like having a time machine to see what I’ll look like in 3 decades. What’s uncanny is that we have the same laugh, birthmark on our hip and the ability to spot a lie from 3 yards away. I just hope as time goes by I’ve also inherited her grace, grit and never ending spunk.

  • Ken Grant

    More similar than I like to admit. We are both hard-headed and stubborn when we believe we are right. Makes for some classic battles but we both love each other deeply.

  • Sarah Turner

    Maybe a little, there is some personality traits that are similar.

  • Diane Lane

    I am my mom’s daughter, we both are loving, family-oriented, independent and stubborn. We both love to cook and bake, crochet and knit and read books. We are so close that when I open my mouth, it is my mom that comes out. Using the phrases I heard over and over again when I was a kid ( I have eyes in the back of my head or wait til your father gets home and the best one I hope your kids are just as bad as you) and I swore to myself I would never say to my kids. Either my mom and I really close or she taken possession of my body.

  • edeliz

    There’s a lot of similarities, but she was a total type A, and in that respect, I took after dad, tommorow is a good day to do anything…

  • Mrs Ed

    I’d like to say that I am exactly like my mother, but not totally. However, there are many similarities between us. The main thing is that my mother was germophobic. I am also germophobic. That word is not in my dictionary, but it sure was in my family, and still is, to this day, in my house. Wash your hands, no money on the kitchen table, don’t touch things in public bathrooms, use your sleeve over your hand or a paper towel to touch door knobs. Sometimes it felt like they were taking a peek inside our home and made the show called “Monk”, because I can SO relate to him. LOL

  • Stacie Snow

    I’m not! Wish I was but I’m like my dad and my brother is like my mom!

  • ramadevi

    Everyone says that I look like my mom. I think my features are like my mom 75%. Now I am almost changed as an elder woman and gained weight so whenever family relatives see me they say that I look like same as my mom. My mom and I has round face, slight curly bushy hair and light brown eyes. But I think I grew up with different life situations and I am different intellectually and my mom was different. She was very concerned but very social. I am not that much social like mom. Anyway I feel lucky when people want to see my mom in my face. Happy mother’s day to everyone.

  • Marce McHone

    I lost my mother when i was 23, she was 49. She died of complications from type 1 diabetes. She was diagnosed at 9 years old. I was diagnosed at 19 with the same. I am 44 and sufferibg the same complications. I have her genes, i look like her, i even act like her. I am so proud of her.

  • Teresa Rojas

    In appearance I am so similar that I have been stopped by someone I have never met before and asked if by any chance my mom was my mom because I looked just like her. What a compliment!!! As far as the person she is I strive every day to be like her,because she is the most amazing woman I know. I hope that people can say that I am very similar to her. Love you mom,and Happy Mother’s Day!!!

  • Rosalinda Leal

    We have grey hair in the the same place of our head

  • rose morgan

    Only just a little, my mom was unique.

  • goldi111

    I am made up emotionally just like my mom is. She has always been my best friend and we always know what the other is feeling. I admire her so much and if I turn out to be half the woman she is, I’ll be fortunate! I am truly blessed to have that wonderful woman for MY mom!

  • Timothy Mccollum

    I see myself acting like her with my kids. For instance telling them I walked 10 miles to school everyday, worked 2 jobs, had more respect for elders, appreciated being feed three square meals a day.

  • Kelly Dutcher

    Funny question. If you were to ask any of our friends they would say wet are so much alike AND so very different. We are the same in the sense that she is the center of my universe and I am the center of hers. However, she is the organized disciplined one and I go with the flow. So it might surprise you that I am the logical, analytical one where she is lead by her emotions. People like that we will leave this world just like Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. I’m inclined to agree. I guess you could say if you combined our best traits, we would make 1 perfect person. 🙂

  • MT

    Not very. She annoys me but I rarely annoy myself!

  • justinkeene

    We both say thank you alot. and also my Mom and I, I noticed we say sorry to people alot. Which always not necessary you can’t be sorry for a lot

  • Christy

    My mother and I look alike and both married at 17 and had children at 18 but that’s where it stops. My mother had me with my Navy father to ensure her and her family’s passage to the US from Germany. She didn’t need any other children. I was raised mainly by my paternal grandmother. My mother had no need for a child beyond my appearance and she didn’t want much to do with me after that. When I had my first daughter she refused to acknowledge that she was a Grandmother (she was “too young”) and didn’t want to be mentioned in the birth announcement. I rejoiced when my grandchildren were born, I embrace the name Grandma and adore shirts with that on it, and I live now for my Grandchildren and to make certain they know they are loved, cared for and wanted. Nope. Nothing similar.

    • Mrs Ed

      I’m so sorry that your mother was like that, Christy. I hope that your paternal grandmother filled the void that every child needs.
      And congrats on the precious grandchildren!
      Happy Mother’s Day!

      • Christy

        Thank you. My Grandmother was wonderful and she is the one who taught me to love and cherish children. If I’m half the grandmother she was, my grandkids are very lucky indeed!!

  • Denise N.

    Me and my mom look nothing alike! In fact, people tend to think I am adopted once they are introduced to my mom. My mom is tall with curly shoulder length hair and is of fair complexion. I, on the other hand, am short, brown skinned with short straight hair. She is careful while speaking and dignified in public. Me? I speak and act in the moment. However, we share a strong love for a drama free life, we embrace new adventures with open arms, we both love to cook, and we are both strong willed, determined, and honest to a fault. My mother was one of the very first women that influenced me to be the woman I am at this time.

  • As much as I never thought i’d turn out like my mom, it is surprising how much we are alike. We have the same humor, hobbies, attitude, traditions, loud mouth, very sociable, great listener and above all, the same undeniable unconditional love for our children – no matter what. Also aside from that I have always been told I look exactly look like my mom… big italian nose, deep dark brown eyes that pierce your soul, high cheek bones, and curves in all the right places.

  • Sara DuVall

    I’m not very similar to her at all.
    I don’t look like her or sound like.
    The only thing is we both like writing and Disney. Lol!

  • Michaele Dalin Goodson

    I have a lot of my mom in me. she wishes to save the world, and 50% of the time I do too

  • Judy Burba McGarvey

    Sometimes I open my mouth and my mother comes out. She was born in a rural area out in the country -out yonder as we say in Kentucky. She was accustomed to being poor and grew up learning to fend for herself and making a dollar stretch a mile. She taught me all those things too. How to cook from scratch, how to sew and make my own clothes, and how to garden and can my own vegetables. My grandson just moved out on his own and while visiting me, I said ” Take care of your pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves.” Exactly what my Mom did her whole life.

  • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

    Thanks, Karen. We bought a house!

    • Karen T

      Do you mean you bought house in Florida?

      • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

        Yep! My husband went to FL a few days ago about another house and ended up buying this one. We’re in contract for it now. The owner wants to close in a month. It’s like a whirlwind!

  • I would say I am more like my dad than my mom, but for this question, I had to really think about it. I am my mom’s oldest daughter and for much of my life I was her helper. She was a single mother when I was 5. I learned from her how to work hard, do a good job the first time, and to not expect the world to revolve around you. To this day I use those 3 lessons in my life. If you slack off or do a half fast job there are consequences that will result in having to do the work again. Also if someone is looking at you weird or seems to be moody chances are it has nothing to do with you. We both went to college twice before graduating. Both of us are the bill payers of the family. Also, there are times I have been informed that have my “mom’s voice” or so Nate says, which I never thought about and will have to pay more attention to. We are the same height and have both natural fountain of youth qualities. No one believes she has a 37 year old and no one believes I am 37! They think she is in her 40s and I am in my 20s. If and when I become a mom, I am sure there will be many more similarities.

    • Mrs Ed

      OK, I don’t know if this is Mel or Nate, lol, but those 3 things that you learned from her are 3 of the greatest qualities one could ever possess and how wonderful that you learned them, from your mother’s example.

  • Mrs Ed

    Hey thank you, Karen! Happy Mother’s Day to you too!

  • Mrs Ed

    I loved that post, Karen! All of it, but the thing about it not being easy. Isn’t it something, how the older generation seemed to make things look easy? Something that we had to learn….that it isn’t. And thank God that you were both saved by the Blood of the Lamb! Woo Hoo! I loved reading that!

    • Karen T

      Thanks! I remember my Mom told me when I was about 14 years old, “Always remember, you have to sleep in the bed that you make.” I remember thinking, “Wow, that’s deep!” LOL… and I’ve never forgotten that.

  • Mrs Ed

    Congrats on having your post featured, Leslie! You made me laugh, when you added that you better check with your sons. Happy Mother’s Day!

  • Lynn King McKinney

    I lost my Mother in 1996, and still miss her dearly. My love of baking and home canning as well as my being comfortable and happy at home are things she loved as well. Also, as I get older I notice more and more small things I do which are just like her. One especially is waiting to partake in meals at gatherings until I know everyone else has gotten their plates. Another is appreciating her concern of tripping over house pets because I’m not quite as sure-footed as in my younger years. ❤️ you, Mom, and Happy Mother’s Day.

  • Sowmya

    I am lot like my mother. We both love cooking for people whether it be friends, relatives or strangers. We both are emotional to the core. We both have forgive and forget kind of nature. She never lived for herself and now I am doing the same. She used to keep my grand mother’s photo under her pillow and I keep my mom’s photo under my pillow always. I feel protected. Mothers are unique gifts given by God! When people say I look like my mother, I feel proud! I wish all the beautiful ladies out there a very happy Mother’s Day!!

  • Sowmya

    Great post Karen! Mother’s love is eternal. Happy Mother’s Day!!

    • Karen T

      Thank you Sowmya. hope you also have a wonderful Mother’s Day!!

  • Stannyboyc

    I’m a lot like my adopted mom. She and I can both cook well, I’m a trained chef, but she taught me first. My mom along with my dad who was a minister taught me a love for my Saviour Jesus. Mom passed in 2000 of cancer and is in the presence of her Saviour and my dad passed in 2015 and is with mom.

  • Ray Ayala

    My mom and dad were complete opposites. My dad and his clan were hyper. My mom and her clan were laid back. My sister is laid back like my mom’s side of the family. I am more like my dad. I always have to be doing something and I like to have a handful of projects going at the same time. I walk fast and my sister likes to mosey. When we meet for walking workouts at the mall or local track and field, she tells everyone that calls, “I can’t talk right now. I am walking with my brother for exercise and I can’t catch my breath.”

  • dottie p

    i hope i’m not. not emotionally anyway. i am similar to her in body shape which sucks. we have the same shape. round is a shape.

  • Toney Roney

    My mom and i are no non sense type of people.there’s a time and place for everything she says.act accordingly non of that extra foolishness lol!!

  • Judith Nelson

    I am so like my mum .She had a bad life and so have I.,its like her life all over again..

  • Noel Stewart

    I am most like my Mom because I am bossy! She was bossy because she was teaching me to strive for perfection in all things! I learned many things from my bossy Mom and today I continually strive for perfection in everything I do. An example would be in remodeling my house–she was excellent at construction work and I am too!

  • Cecilia

    We are almost identical in our ways of thinking. I share everything with my Mom. We’ve both been through health and relationship issues in our lives . She is truly a strong woman which I am proud to follow in her footsteps. The only difference between us is that she has a green thumb, and me, well, I can barely keep a bamboo plant alive. She is my rock, and I’m so grateful she’s still with me.

  • Moamen Mamdouh

    yes i do it

  • Natania

    This is so weird because Thursday evening me, my mom, and my daughter were looking at some pictures, and we found some of my mom when she was in her twenties. Well my mom showed Kayla (my daughter) the picture, and Kayla says, “Wow my mom looks like a model!” I looked at the picture and busted out laughing, it wasn’t me, it was my mom. It really did look exactly like me though. We also feel sorry for people easily,for example my sisters will yell at someone for the dumbest reasons, but me and mom will yell at someone and right afterwards we feel sorry for the person we just yelled at. Almost every evening we watch jeopardy, wheel of fortune, or family feud and we see who can answer the fastest, it’s a lot of fun. We love card games, euchre, skipbo, uno, etc.. Unfortunately we are both pack rats and gullible. We love to help people, and we both have very kind hearts.

  • Alicia Diem

    Too much alike we can’t stand each other sometime. But all is fair in Love and war.

  • Oti Vlogs

    me mom arent aswell i guess idk.

  • Deb

    I’m beginning to look very much like my mother. We have a lot of the same mannerisms. I didn’t think that we looked anything alike, but now that I’ve aged it’s funny how much alike in appearance we are. But, that’s about as far as it goes. Our personalities are completely different. Even though we loved each other, we never could understand the other. She always had a beer in her hand. I never have been a drinker. She could cuss up a storm and I don’t. She liked nothing better than to fight, I hated it. We definitely had a love/hate relationship. When she was dying and I was taking care of her, I realized how much time we wasted by not trying to be better to each other. That was probably more my fault than hers. I just couldn’t be around her when she was drinking. One thing she was. She was a wonderful grandmother and we all miss her.

  • Dawn Groom Engler

    My Mom is no longer with me. She died of cancer in 2000 and I still think about her every day. As I am getting older people say I am starting to look more like her. I feel I am becoming more out spoken like she was as I am getting older as well. I think those are the only things we actually have in common.

  • Casandra

    I am proud to be very similar to my mom who I miss dearly. We think of others before ourselves, sometimes to a fault. We have unconditional love for others especially our family and that is rare in many people today. We do not expect anything in return for anything we did and in my case still do except for health and happiness for everyone. I wish everyone A HAPPY MOTHERS DAY.

  • Cheyenne Too-real Shaw-Brown

    Actually not at all! We do almost everything completely different. Maybe once my children get older I’ll start to reflect back on my mom lessons. Her cooking in my kitchen kind of takes me back…but it also pushes me out.lol..its not the same as when the child enters mom kitchen to help out!

  • DM

    I lost my Mom when I was only 14. But I remember how sweet and kind she was to me, my family and everyone that knew her. I still have people tell me how sweet she was. And the same to me. People tell me my personality is so much like hers. Always trying to help others. Putting others ahead of myself.

  • Drea Nivea Rahming

    Hmm let’s see I am the spitting image of her when I am pregnant Do I think we are alike no but according to my hubby yes at least 30%

  • Karen T

    Thank you!

  • Willows End Research

    I’m seriously her clone!

  • glenny

    not at all am more loving and push my kids to do greater things and help them to get back up when they fall without hurting thier feeling

  • 77giggles

    I notice more and more that I’m adopting my mom’s attitude about things… It’s really scary.. LOL

  • Chelle Greene

    I am my mom’s mini me… i love her

  • trece21

    Everytime I look in the mirror I see my mom. I look like her and built like my mom. I feel sorry for my boyfriend because sadly, I have my mom’s attitude too lol. I also have my mom drive and strength and for that, I am thankful for. Love you mom! <3

  • Surveys Profit

    I have her sexy eyes. Lol

  • Christy

    OK so who is it that’s having trouble counting? Ooops you did it again (sing it with me!) There are 2 Number 1562’s. Y’all need to increase your coffee budget and get rid of the decaf!!!

    • Vindale

      Seriously, Christy, we had a monumental brain fart. In process of fixing numbering.

  • RDuckie

    Over the phone, we are indistinguishable from each other… if I answer her phone, I have to identify myself in case it’s my dad calling – even he can’t tell us apart!!! And I don’t want him to say anything he only wants my mom to hear!!!! Ewwwww…. I have noticed over the years I will say something and think, OMG… that’s something mom would say – NOT ME!!!! LOL!!!! I guess it’s true: we do become our mothers. 🙂

  • dolfanatl

    I do not think I am that similar to my mom. My wife, however, is. Paging Dr. Freud.

  • Maddie Lessard

    Complete opposite, I’m short she’s tall, I’m under weight she a little bit on the heavy side. I like to party she would rather be one on one. I like music she wants peace and quiet……

  • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

    Thanks, Karen. It’s a little nerve wracking!

    • Karen T

      I’m sure it must be. I’d imagine it’s pretty hard when you’re in a different state and can’t see everything before hand or at your own convenience.

      • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

        At least I saw pictures. It’s beautiful. A contractor flipped it. Everything is new. But my daughter’s going to stay here in NJ so I’m going to own two houses!

        • Karen T

          Hey, that’s a great investment! And I don’t know if you saw my post for today’s question LOL, but I really am glad for you Diane!

          • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

            Thanks, Karen!!!

  • Dicksy Maneschyn

    I never thought I was like my mother but I guess I’ve been proven wrong! My children and husband all say I look like my mom and have certain traits like my mom. She has passed on now but I do know she was a caring woman. Didn’t matter who was coming to visit she always had a meal prepared for you and loved the visits. My family can agree that I do the same . Even to the extent of serving same foood items! Looking through my pictures of my Mom on Mother’s Day brings fond memories of her selfless giving to others . Love you Mom for giving me life!

  • Aries13

    I find myself saying a lot of things to my kids that my mom used to say to me. We definitely resemble each other too. But I’m way more like my dad than my mom!

  • Theresa Holly

    My mom is deceased but I was told we sounded alike (or voices were similar hard to tell apart on phone)

  • Merm123

    Sorry Karen, Just saw your post. Happy Belated Mother’s Day to you too.

    • Karen T

      Thank you Merm123. And that’s okay, I was responding to your post where you were wishing everyone out there happy Mother’s day. LOL! I hope you had a great one.

  • Jessica

    My mom is very happy, she like to smile, animals, and visit friends. But sometimes she is very nervous with stuff that not have importance. I am very similar with my mom.
