Mother’s Day

Those of you on Facebook have likely seen the trend of posting your mom’s photo as your profile picture. For those of you who aren’t on Facebook (ahem, Mom and Gramma…), I thought you might like a peek at my post.

This is my mom’s senior photo, and one of my favorite shots of her. (My second favorite photo is one in which she’s holding my 18-month-old self and mimicking my very aggressive nose-picking, but that’s for another day.)

I know that I look like my mother, but I was shocked at the comparison of her photo next to mine. In part, it’s the hairstyle and nude lip, but I think the other similarities are remarkable.

When I mentioned this to to Mom, she said, “Remind me to show you the photo of me with Santa when I was a year old.  You would swear it was Olivia.”

And, as luck would have it, my friend Molly just commented on my Facebook post: “Olivia is her grandmother’s granddaughter. The resemblance is uncanny. ”
