Round 2 – Readers Admit: I Knew I Became My Mother When…

Last week I asked readers to complete the sentence “I knew I became my mother when…”. Your responses were so overwhelming and fantastical that we just had to ask the question again for round 2! I mean, how could we not?!

Whether its a thing you say, a look you give, or the fact that you look just like her, chances are your mother has influenced your parenting style.

Check out how your fellow mothers knew they became their mother in round 2!
