How do you want to be like her as a mother?

How do you want to differ from her?

How do you want to be like her as a mother? My Mom is an amazing woman and mother. She did everything for us, worked her @ss off for us! She would still do anything for her children and now her grandchildren.

How do you want to differ from her?
She was a single Mom and worked so hard and much that I don't think she got to fully enjoy us being little. She'd work 16 hour days and went months without a single day off.
I'm so very thankful that my husband is awesome and allows me to be home with my girls.

My mom is simply the best mother a daughter could have. I can only wish to be as selfless and giving as she is. She treats my children as if they were her own and would do anything for them. She always has my back no matter what and she's a great MIL to my husband. Very giving and super supportive of him also.

I don't really have any areas I want to differ from her. Any 'issues' I might have had with her parenting during some teen years I now get completely. She wasn't trying to be a downer, she was looking out for me.

She's the woman who gave birth to me. That's about it. The one who makes me feel like rubbish, the one who told me I couldn't do anything growing up. The one who still does that now just to make herself feel good.

How do I want to differ from her? In every way!

aw this is pretty much how I feel about my mom. both of my parents treated me and my sister very differently, though, which is something that i had a lot of resentment about growing up. even to this day my mom spoils the hell out of my sister when she doesn't deserve anything. i'm actually really glad that i wasn't spoiled like her because i appreciate everything and she appreciates nothing. her sense of entitlement is through the roof.

i hope that i can differ from her only in that I raise the boys fairly so that they love one another instead of have jealous feelings toward one another.

My mom wasn't the mom that played with us as kids, and she wasn't always the kindest mother either, but one way I hope to be like her is to be able to do all I can to support my children, and to understand sacrificing things for myself, isn't a bad thing. It's a mom thing.

Back when my parents were still using my Dad would pawn his tools and stuff for drugs. My mom would pawn things to get food in the house, suffering being sick, but making sure we were fed. <-that is a huge sacrifice when you are addicted....


One way I hope to *never* be like her is the name calling, making my brother and I feel stupid, and unwanted.. I still remember most things she said to me, and it still plays a huge role in how I see myself.

I hope I can take that and show my children just how smart and beautiful i think they are. And never insult them like she had me.
