When it comes to mothers and daughters, the apple does not fall far from the tree. A recent study by Hallmark cards reveals that at about age 32, women find they are turning into their moms, copying habits like worrying, stocking up on groceries and watching soap operas. And that is also when they begin to use “mom-isms” like “Because I said so,” and “I’ll give you something to cry about.” According to behavioral expert Judi James, it is perfectly natural as you age to begin to act like the most important person in your life. ***I can see this in my own life. Every day I notice mannerisms in myself that remind me of my dad. The older I get, the more I am becoming him.
