Have you turned into your mother? FabulaMum Quiz

Have you turned into your mother? FabulaMum Quiz

Last week without realising it I actually told my youngest to stop pulling faces because if the wind changed her face will stay like that. She looked at me and said “that’s what Granny said”.
It occurred to me that I had in fact turned into my mother. I wasn’t entirely sure how this had happened so I decided to investigate further. When did I turn from yummy mummy FabulaMum into the woman that I had been butting heads with for the past 30something years?
During my research I accumulated a vast array of information from other parents which has formed the based of this quiz.

Mostly As
You are so far from being your mother it’s untrue. In fact you probably shouldn’t be looking after any children as it’s clear you are deeply scared by your childhood.
It’s likely you’re one of those mothers that wants to be friends with thier children and it’s probably because you are still a child yourself.

Mostly Bs
Clearly you’re not quite there yet but give it time. Perhaps the fact that your child’s nanny is doing most of the parenting in your house is the only reason you are still holding onto some scrap of youth.

Mostly Cs
Since having children you discovered a newfound respect for your mother. You started enjoying each other’s company and making a point of seeing each other on a regular basis to “catch up”
Congratulations, not only have you become your mother but it’s most likely in the years to come that it’ll be you that will be her primary caregiver.

A very yummy mummy
