Photo above is a pic of my mommy (Spanish = mami) in the 60s or 70s. Isn’t she stylish rocking a raincoat with her long hair up!
Lately iiii have been putting my hair up more often … oh oh .. ‘am i turning into mom?’ :O Just recently at a project site I was taking pics + measurements (which is a bit of an exercise, so it was getting hot) and I quickly put up my hair in an updo (not a simple pony-tail, but an up-do).
The photo on the right, my mom told be it was ‘staged’ … she was pretending to have an adoring conversation with her crush as a friend took the pic (see how she is holding the photo hahaha.)
And yes, that’s me above sitting on my mom’s lap. For a brief time she sported a short hairdo (ooh, ohh so have i !!). For the past few years my mom has developed a habit that just before she heads out the door she turns back and de-clutters …. like placing all the mail back in 1 pile and of course dirty dishes can NEVER be left in the sink (EVEN if it is one teacup w/spoon). And guess who has been doing that lately too???? The funny thing is that I don’t realize it until I see my husband’s smirk on his face, and the funnier thing is that mom doesn’t live with us so it is not something I see every day to ‘pick up the habit’ .. I just do it …. ahhhhhh!. BTW: I didn’t scan these pics, I simply took took photos of the photos from my phone + u/l to my computer (yep, nothing fancy). Its a great way to conserve printed photos into our digital world. I didn’t use a tripod, but I recommend that you do so (since I had to take about 5 pics to get a non-blurry one, EVEN when I held my breath to minimize movement.) ALSO, you can create gift tags my simply copying the photos like I did below ….
Ok, so truth be told as much as I say … oooh ohhhh at our similar mannerisms it’s an honor having her characteristics - her sense of humor (I got my one-liner sarcasm from my mom), her problem solving skills, and much more. I love you mami! Happy Mother’s Day to moms! Hey, do you find yourself becoming a lil bit more like your mom? I would love to hear how.
