The Moment You Become Your Mom

Posted: Updated:

ANDERSON - Time's running out to grab a gift for Mother's Day, but we may not realize that our moms give us a piece of them every day. Years later, these lessons will resurface and we'll realize we've become our mom.

"Just a lot of different flowers, blooming thistle, gerbers and roses and peonies," says Blooms Owner, Aimee Cromer.

Cromer says her Anderson floral shop is even busier this time of year than Valentines. She's bust creating arrangements for Mother's Day.

"I think the best part is the delivery," Cromer says.

Mother's Day became an official holiday in 1914, but every mom holds dear that moment when they became a mom.

"That's what made me a mother," says Susan Head, "When you see that baby's face there's nothing, nothing like that."

Despite the love between a mother and child, many of us have made the same pledge, "I will never be my mother."

"The first time I ever repeated something she said to me I was like, oh my gosh, I sound like my mother," says mom, Taunia Richardson.

Ladies at this flower shop says as hard as they tried, they still find themselves following in their mother's footsteps. 

"I would call her everyday and say ok I have to admit, I have become my mom . and she started laughing she says we all do it honey, we all do it, eventually," Richardson says.

It's a pattern they see emerging in their daughters too.

"She'll says 'oh I do that same thing that you do,'" Head says.

"I also have a 14-year-old daughter right now so it's very trying right now by my mother reassures me that she will come back around," Cromer says.

A 2011 poll by Hallmark found most men and women take on some form of their mom by age 32. The card company poll says most people pick up on their mom's favorite phrases, concerns and speech patterns.

"They teach you and it just becomes part of you when you grow up," Richardson says.

    Dozens of drivers have filed complaints with the South Carolina Department of Transportation over loose gravel along a stretch of I-85. Officials said the complaints, which topped out at between 6 and 8 per day last week, stem from gravel that's damaged vehicles between Highway 14 and 129, where crews are working on a two-year-long resurfacing project.
