Ouch! My Kid is just like me and it hurts

My child is just like me and it hurts

This post “My child is just like me” is a mix of humor and bitter truth.

We were out in the park and I refused my Kid’s unreasonable demand. Suddenly my ears heard something I couldn’t believe- “I will slap you”.

It was my Kid. Really!

The other Mom consoled me saying he must have learned this in School. I agreed with an embarrassing smile.

However, at the back of my mind, I knew that its not the school but me. I say this to him as an automated reply to his tantrums.

I would like to thank UK for introducing me to Momology Blog train. You can read more about his work at their Blog Fashionable Foodz.

It took me to the adolescent age when my Mother used to say that you will get to know once you become a Parent.

I never knew that it will become a reality.

One of the things they never tell you is that your children are going to be just like you. They pick up everything. They are like little mirrors.

They throw the damn reality on your face and you can’t do anything about it.

As much as you feel happy when they reflect your good DNA, you feel hurt when your Kid exhibits your bad behavior. It hurts more when they do that in front of your own Mother.

Even if she doesn’t say anything, her looks are enough to signal – See! I told you. Ahhh!

That very moment I wish to hide my face as deep as I can. It is a big blow to your ego.


Seeing myself in him is not an easy game as it invites irritation and anger. Why? Because of how true it is but no one wants to inherit their bad traits to their Kids.

Some of our “like parent, like child” moments:

My Kid pushes our younger one when she takes his toys.

My younger self (to my Mom): Mumma, throw him (my younger brother)


My Kid throw tantrums to buy toys every time we go to the market

I used to do the same.


My Kid swirls on the floor when his wishes are not met.

I used to do the same to do the tasks independently.


But he is also emotional, caring and possessive about his loved ones.

Just like I am 😉


Do you also have those moments when you feel- Your child is just like you?

    I am having a lot of memories already. I am trying to come terms with it myself and I guess I must learn to come to terms with my baby girl too. Lovely post Upasna. Though this is one thing I am worried to write, it is truly a pleasure to read one’s fears so that we get over it and write our own.

    I think children are such sharp observers and learning every little thing from their immediate surrounding from parents, grandparents, in the neighborhood, teachers and classmates. I wouldn’t say such thing happen but take it easy. Yes, the closest friends are parents and interesting debate.

    Yes sometimes we get a reality check when kids reciprocate our weakness. I guess acceptance to it and moulding our words are means to get over it.
