Talk about trying to live vicariously through your kid!
On Wednesday night's Toddlers & Tiaras, Carley's mom scolds the 5-year-old when she gives her grief about practicing for the pageant.
"We are on camera. Don't you dare tell me 'No' one more time," Carley's mom whispers harshly. "Do year hear me? We are on national TV. Everybody's going to see this."
But the tot's mom believes she's coming from a good place. "Carley is as close to an exact replica of me as there could ever be," she gushes. "I feel like her and I are the same person. We live the same life, and we're best friends. I just feel like that is me on stage."
Watch the mother-daughter duo in the preview clip above, and tune in to TLC Wednesday at 10 p.m. for a new episode of Toddlers & Tiaras.
