    :(

    Everyone tells me that.And I hate to be shallow, but my mom is really fat.And she also has a pretty crappy personality to match. Don't get me wrong--she's nice to her friends but isn't too fond of me. Sometimes we get along and other times, I just want her to shut up. She's also...

    I Look Like Both

    People tell me I look like my mom. Then people tell me I look like my Grandmother (her mom). Then people tell me I look like my Dad and last but not least his mom which is my Grandmother on my Father's side. Weird.

    People Who

    ...also knew my Mom. They mention her brown hair, brown eyes, pug nose, rounded chin. People who didn't know my Mom don't say these characteristics, but my nephew - her grandson - has the jawline, eyes, and pug nose from our side of the family. Go figure, folks!

    I Didn't Have To Be Told

    I wasn't told. I gave witness for myself. Sadly it is true. Not only do I look like my mother but we both look like my grandmother(her mother). It really is terrible. When I saw we all had the same nose, chin, eyes and cheek structure...I cried. Not to mention my mother is a...

    I Do

    i look just like her. i don't even know how many times i have been told that. however it does present one problem. my mom doesn't know who my dad is so if i looked like him she might know but the truth is it never will matter at this point. i grew up without a dad basically so i...
