You start sounding like your own mother
If you ever rolled your eyes or yelled at your mother when you were younger, you might want to call her up and apologize profusely, because now that you have your own child, you’ll find yourself turning into your mother! “As much as we all try to avoid it,” One mother states, “in some way, shape, or form, we all become a sliver of our mothers at some point during parenthood. Especially when talking to our children.” This is frequently where new mothers see their own matriarchs bleeding through, although they’ll also report similar behaviors as well. It’s inevitable, really; we observe and learn from our parents, so naturally that influence will manifest itself in certain ways. What better trigger than having a child of your own? So, don’t be surprised if, be it early on or as your baby grows, you find yourself shocked to hear your mother’s voice coming out of your mouth!
