Whose That Girl?

I was talking with the youngest daughter the other day, when suddenly, I was completely distracted. 

She reminds me of someone.  Who?



She's talking to me about something, but I can't really pay attention..... 


Something about those eyes, the nose... 



Why do I get the feeling that there is someone out there whom she reminds me of?? 


So I said something to my husband.  "Man, she really reminds me of someone, but I can't put my finger on it." 

He just looked at me and smiled.

That's when it hit me -  (Duh, mom!)



She looks like me!


Dare to compare!!


Ok, so the hair is the wrong color - but that's because she INSISTED that she should be blonde.  (She wants to be a model - Lord, help me!)
Maybe she reminds me of my sister instead....




That could be it.  I mean, my sister and I always did look a lot alike.  
See??



It's just that in that moment, while listening to my darling daughter tell me about something important to her, I was transported back in time 30 years.  I was looking at myself in the bathroom mirror.  That face I see on her is often the face I see in my mind's eye when I think of myself.  The one in the mirror isn't one I recognize anymore.  (Good grief, I sound like I have Alzheimer or something!)

I wonder if my mother ever felt this way looking at my sister and me?




Aren't families amazing?

Much Love to All
