Domestic Bliss Report

Motherhood is hard work. If we don't stick together, we'll all fall apart.

I've been wrong before, but not THIS wrong.

I've had more than one individual tell me how much Rachel looks like me. Former neighbors who knew me when, other family, even Diane down there in the green dress.

I said each time, "I don't see it."

Just to check myself, I dug out a picture of myself at that same age.

So...


AM I BLIND? I mean, LEGALLY WITHOUT VISION?!

Holy cow.

Pop some freckles on her nose and change her hair color and you'd have a clone my friend. :o) Personality an all! LOL

Right down to the way your hair parts naturally.

Legally blind? Yes indeed.

Mom and Zach beat me to it. I think the freckles (and lack thereof on her part) is what threw you off.

As to whether you're blind, tell you what: I will ask my beloved, blind fiancé to look at the pictures, and if he sees the resemblance, I will tell you that you must REAAALLY be blind! :-)

I think I see twins.

Your own photos don't look the same to you as what you see in the mirror; they're reversed. So when you compare your kid in front of you to your mental image of yourself back then, you don't see it.
