My Doppelganger

[Over coffee and hot chocolate at Target, during Darren's after-school program]

Sarah: "You know, Mommy, you look a lot like Sarah Palin -- except you don't have the same hair, you don't wear glasses all the time, and she looks younger."

Mommy: "So what part of me does look like her?"

Sarah: "You both make the same kind of faces."

Alrighty then. You betcha.

Today, I'm thankful...

Darren's head is resting on my chest as I type, and one of his pals is coming for a playdate Monday.

Sarah is working on her homework and trying to figure out an "asking sentence" using the word "but."

Double Daddy's cold is better enough that he feels up for rockin' with his buddies in the band tonight.

That was so funny - I think you do resemble Sarah Palin a bit - only you are a lot cuter!! Sarah Palin is pretty cute too, so that was a compliment - funny, though!

Have a good evening, Cheryl - Kellan

Oh yes....She could totally be your sister! LOL!

I think your kid is right. You and Sarah Palin favor each other. Yall could pass for sisters for sure!

Cheryl Lage said...

No way! Really? Y'all I posted this because I thought it was so funny -- and especially because Sarah delights in reminding me of how old I look (knowing that SP is a year older than I...)

Maybe I'll go for the updo, glasses and political office....
(Although I can only imagine the ugly stuff that might be unearthed. Nevermind! ;) )

Octamom said...

Love it! I wonder who my kids would say I look like--I'm a little scared to ask...

Blessings!

That was so cute! I love it. Now just keep working on that 'fargo' accent, and you'll have her down just right!

Way to count your blessings! God is good. Now just keep taking your vitamins...no sick days for Mommy! :)

Hugs!

How funny! (and I do see the resemblence)
Even funnier because my kids told me I looked like her too.

Too funny and very observant! Usually kids just focus on the obvious things.

Cute!
