Just wanted to give a heads up that my first post went up today on LA Moms Blog.

Yes, as you may have expected, I got my neuroses on. Big time.

This time it was about me freaking out when I saw a woman crossing the street who looked exactly like -- and was dressed exactly the same as -- C. Same outfit, same blond hair, same features (plus 30-35 years, give or take a Botox shot.) It was eerie and made me want to hide my child, just in case she mistook this woman (instead of her dark-haired, dark-eyed real mother) for her own flesh and blood.

I might have overreacted, but I did get to use the word "Mommelganger."

That post is so me. As in, I know I'll constantly be looking for proof of my child's lineage in their face. After all these years, I'm still trying to decide whether I take after my Dad more ... or is it my Mom?

I'm so glad I'm not alone!
