Have you ever put a current photo of yourself next to a photo of your mother at the same age? I am actually older than my mom was in her photo. I am certainly MUCH rounder, but I like seeing us side by side. I think my mom is one of the most beautiful people and I hope I continue to look like her as I age.
(After I did this I went on to do it with celebrities and their kids for a post on Babble.)
