Same face? I don't know

Mom, 2003

I remember visiting with Mom and Dad at their place in Mexico...San Felipe, Baja Norte, on the Sea of Cortez, around the turn of the century.

Mom and I were in town, shopping or just strolling, I forget...but a truck stopped to let us cross at an intersection and the driver called to us..."Look, same face!"
It was Mom and Dad's good friend Julio, who had known them well for a number of years. He and Dad always had a grand time fishing together.

Maybe Julio had never seen the two of us side by side in those years, despite my visiting them occasionally and his visiting them often, or maybe it just didn't occur to him, but I've wondered ever since.
I never really thought I looked like my mother, but perhaps I was wrong...I posted this to my Facebook page and everyone says yes...same face!

Close enough that's for sure! You have beautiful hair.... I have to keep mine short and especially the first thing in the morning my face looks more like my dad than my mother. (Or when I try to wear a hat). I adored my dad, but it is a bit depressing to think I look just like him ... not a bit glamorous!

On the airplane home from Palm Springs today there was a mother and two young daughters (early to mid-teens) in the seats in front of us. They all looked very much alike. I don't think I look much like my mother or father, I think I look more like relatives a generation older. - Margy

Yep ..... that's the same face alright!! But how good is that? Nothing wrong with looking like your Mom. I look like my Mum. No not my two legged Mum ..... my 4 legged Mum. My two legged Mum said she only got me cause everyone said you get a dog and you end up looking like them So Mum got Me!! She thought she'd end up skinny. It didn't work ....

Lady Fi said...

Yes - you do look alike. I notice that I look more and more alike my mum too as I get older.

Yes. Same to same. It's the eyes and the smile which define it. I don't have my mum's face. I have HER mum's face... and body... sigh...YAM xx

Certainly,the same face!
Thanks for your comment. I am so sorry that we are all insecure about this new president. He is rich and there lies the danger.Let's hope that he is surrounded by wise advisors.

Yes, I do see two beautiful faces, Kay. It must be comforting to see your mom in yourself.
