I do the same thing Katie. First time in my life that something I did was considered "brilliant!"

When I leave my hair the natural color and don't wear any eye makeup I look in the mirror and see my mother looking back at me. The last time my uncle saw me I scared him half to death! He thought I was Myrtle come back from the grave!

I used to see my Mom looking back at me a lot...but this pic looks like my Grandmother. Mom should look like Grandma. (Shrek's kids made me a grandma when I was 29)

I'm seeing my dad more and more in the mirror. Lots of the things that come out of my mouth are things that he'd say, our sense of humor is pretty similar.

I'm not only seeing my mother in the mirror - I'm turning into her.

My mother was a very talented dressmaker and tailoress and made all my "best" clothes. When I was a student I bought a pattern and enough fabric for her to make me a winter coat. The first thing she said was "What do you want that for? It's very old-fashioned (it wasn't in 1970!) I had one just like that when I was your age" (which would have been in 1941). I swore then and there that if I ever had children I would never say anything like that.

We move on another 30 years and god daughter comes for lunch wearing - guess what? A coat identical in all but colour to the afore-mentioned one. I swear I was not in control of my mouth because it announced "I like your coat. I had one just like it when I was you age" I knew what I was saying but I just couldn't stop myself! History repeats! I was mortified!

That was when I knew I was turning into my mother.
