I am Angelina Jolie… HA

Or she is me. At least that’s what Hope thinks.

‘Look Mom, it’s you,’ Hope says as she points to a picture of the famous mom on a magazine at our local grocery store.’

Oh My Snork! I about choked right there in the check-out line – Ya Right.

Sure we have our similarities like doting mom’s to cute kids.

But my belly birthed all six of mine and it’s got the girth to prove it.

Well, lets see. We both have long dark hair. But …


O.K. I admit it. We look nothing alike. Hum, maybe if I tweezed my bush brows, pumped up my lower lip with whatever they pump up lips with and lost 40 [plus lbs, and wore make-up.


Double snort. cough, choke, hum. Yeah, not even then.

I have to admit I’m flattered that Hope thinks I’m so beautiful. I’m sure if you asked my boys they’d say I looked like Kathy Bates. This is her, by the way, but I can do a mean impersonation.

‘Yeah,’ Evo-man replied when he saw this image. ‘That about nails it.’

Then again, maybe it’s a girl thing. I always thought my mom looked like Sophia Loren.

And she looks this good without make-up. With it she could have won a look-alike contest.

Meanwhile I’m going to lose that extra 40 lbs. and start wearing make-up.

'Yeah,' my husband agrees. 'Make-up, would be nice.'

So cute!
It's the hair for sure. You could pull it off.

And don't forget Angie's army of nanny-types and other assorted household staff. I'm sure we'd all look more beautiful if we never had to dust. I love that picture of mom, btw, I always thought she looked like a movie star, too.

well, I for one think you're adorable! (but not the picture where you're trying to look like psyco mom... you crack me up!) I love how your fairy wings turned out.

Love It!

You're more beautiful than she is. And you'd have to lose 60 pounds to look like her---way too thin. But it is nice that our children think we're beautiful!

I worry who my kids would think I look like. I am not even going to ask them!

You are too funny! I think it is great that your daughter looks like Angelina Jolie! If only we could see ourselves through the eyes of those that love us!!

I think you are beautiful as you are. If you feel more beautiful with makeup then go for it. Your post made me laugh. I'm sure my son would agree that I have my Kathy Bates moments. I thought my mom looked like a young Liz Taylor in her day.

Nobody neeeeds makeup, but it's fun. By the way, you look REAL. Angelina Jolie looks like she's made out of plastic. Attractive plastic, but plastic nonetheless.

By the way---I loved the screaming baby shot from the Tea Party..

Thanks for the giggles! I would definitely have fallen off my chair and been royally flattered. She would be my fave child for the day! Ha-ha. You ARE beautiful and you DO have similarities. What a sweet comment. I think I would have been on cloud 9! You've got a cutie on your hands.
