The beauty, it’s genetic

I should have known the second I posted about sitting in the new dog bed to encourage Duncan to love it that someone would ask for a picture. And because I live to serve and also have zero dignity, well, why not? Besides, I thought it was time to really embrace my exquisite, graceful beauty, and lay claim to my child’s, too.

Here I am:

Duncan was perplexed. Possibly because classy is my middle name.

And here’s my girl:

We are practically twins, no?

Oh, did you happen to notice that awesome hair? Don’t worry, I’ve got the whole scoop on how to do unicorn hair over at Alpha Mom, if you want to check it out once you’re done marveling over how two people can look SO MUCH ALIKE. It’s uncanny, I know.

    My dog looks at me (or doesn’t look) the exact same way sometimes.

  2. AnotherDawn

    The resemblance is astounding!

    Love, love, LOVE Chickie’s hair!

  4. Brigitte

    Thank you for obeying the will of teh interwebz. ;-)

    Duncan really does look concerned! You can see it in his eyes.

    Plus, Chickadee’s hair is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. My mother never would have let me do that in a million years, I am jealous! I guess I could do it now, but it’s not quite the same when you’re not a teen!

  6. Stacy

    I LOVE her hair! And I was thinking I was the cool mom, because when I dyed my mohawk purple, I gave my 6 year old a purple streak!

  7. Jeanie

    Duncan looks like, WTF? But, Mir, you’re so tiny you can fit in that bed. I love Chickie’s hair. Very cool!

  8. Chuck

    Practicing yoga there? You know, doing an updog pose. Cool hair!

  9. Mary K. in Rockport

    The hair looks good!

  10. Daisy

    The unicorn hair is awesome! I love Duncan’s expression. It says, “You’re recording this for the blog, aren’t you? And you must be glad she’s performing so well for the camera.”

    I totally covet Chickie’s hair!

    And I admire all the work put in to making it look so dang cool. Having had green hair in the not so distant past I know it’s a TON of work. I’d have purple hair right now if I weren’t so damn lazy/cheap. :)
