8 Ways Moms Are Just Like Their Toddlers

Hands Off!

I never really started to think about how much I am really like my toddlers until recently. I mean, I had three hours in a car, not driving, not texting… just looking, seeing, and thinking.

And it dawned on me, I have so much in common with these little people who run my life day in and day out. I mean, I would assume that the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree when it comes to parenting kids right?

They mimic our behavior, likes, wants… everything. They are little miniature parrots. But I think as time goes on and they take over our lives, and what we do, and adapt them to their young mentality and lives, we eventually start to mimic them again.
