Becoming our mothers

My friend and I were discussing our mothers today and both agreed that although we both loved our moms to death, we have zero desire to become carbon copies of them when we become mothers ourselves. In most women’s lives, their mothers are the women they respect the most – they raised you, fed you, instilled you with values, and helped shape you into the person you are today. Of course, we want to continue for our children what we loved about our mothers, but we also want to learn from what they taught us and give our children what will hopefully be an even better life. Maybe the mental check list of what to do (and not do) for our children will be helpful when the day finally arrives.
