My Thoughts on Raising a Daughter

I have to say that raising a daughter is probably one of the most difficult things I've had to do. When I see and hear the things that the Princess does, it painfully reminds me... of me. She is like a magnifying glass of all my most annoying traits.

The irritating stubborn as a mule trait? That's from me.

The hot temper? That's from me too.

Ugh. I hate seeing all that stuff in her. When she's being like me, I wonder how I even put up with myself. I wonder if maybe my mom thought the same thing about me too.

Oh my gosh, YES. I know exactly what you're talking about! I'm raising a stubborn daughter myself! haha

I don't know why but try as I might to not to, I've inherited a lot of my mom. She is sweet as hell... but I could have done without inheriting some of her idiosyncrasies.

Yeah, you know your mom is smiling and saying payback's a bitch!

Really...I completely understand where you are coming from. Just now J is starting some undesirable behavior and I know exactly where it came from .

yes. I know. I see myself in my daughter and I cringe, but I get all mushy at the same time...

This is exactly why I was scared when I found out I was carrying a girl.

Now she's here, 8 weeks in and full of DRAMA. What have we gotten ourselves into?!

Tried to comment earlier and head to BOOK IT out of the house...

My mom frequently tells my sister that she is exactly like me. My sister is 12 years younger and has a different dad. Hmmm..wonder where those simliarities come from??? hahaah.

**HAD to, that is. (As in, I was running late. As in, I spent too much time reading blogs again.)

Just wanted to clarify that. "head to book it" just didnt' make any sense at all.
