You & Mom: 3 ways you're similiar, 3 ways you're different

  1. Same:
    1. We're both polyglots.
    2. We both like the same kind of guys (for me).
    3. We both remember really minute details.

    1. My mom is 5'11" and looked like a model when she was young! I'm only 5'2"
    2. My mom is a domestic goddess and I can't even summon up the tiniest interest in buying a cooking pan.
    3. My mom is really good about being kind when she has the opportunity, rather than indifferent. Which is not to say I'm unkind, but I should be nicer than I am. Maybe that comes with being older!
  2. 1. My Mom and I both apologize for everything all the time lest we might have inadvertently been rude to someone
    2. My Mom and I both have a shopping problem...obviously inherited
    3. My Mom and I are both a bit eccentric

    1. My Mom could never fathom spending over $300 on a bag
    2. My Mom is ALWAYS late...I am always a fault!
    3. My Mom is extremely worried about all sorts of nonsense, and I couldn't be more laid back
  3. 1) Both tough as nails. If we believe in something you can't, and won't, just change our minds.
    2) Both tall. 5'6 for me and like 5'8 for my mom.

    1) She like clothes that use bold colors and prints, I like more pale and solid things.
    2) She's morely likely to forgive someone who hurt her feels, I most likely will not.
