Recently I was visiting my mom and, in her building’s lobby, bumped into an adorable young man. I knew exactly who he must be, even though we had never met. ”Are you Sharon’s son?” I asked. It turns out I was not the only one who noticed how much he looked like his mom. The timing was perfect because we just happened to be looking for family members who resemble one another for Annie Blaylock McQueen’s story in this issue. See if you agree that these family pairs are the spittin’ image of one another. When it comes to family resemblances, I do not hear that often about my own mom. She loves to dress up and is always in full makeup by 7 a.m. I am not. But one thing we have in common is our love of storytelling. Boy, does she have some doozies. And so do I. But it wasn’t until recently that we started sharing some of them with each other. I came clean on a few not-so-proud-daughter moments, and she told me some oh-I-can’t-believe-my-mom-did-that moments. Sorry I can’t share details here, but be sure to check out Andria Frankfort’s Back Porch this month for more tell-all stories. firstname.lastname@example.org
