when did I start looking like my mother?

As I passed by a mirror the other day I suddenly noticed that I looked like my mother. when did this happen? I never used to look like my mother at all. She had a round face and white hair and I looked like my Dad. She was also in her eighties. I am close to 60 years old but I don't feel like I'm that old. I don't usually look like I'm that old either. but there we were in the mirror. My mother was not a fashionable dresser, nor did she wear much makeup or have much done with her hair. I on the other hand have a very good hair stylist who keeps my hair looking good. I like to dress carefully so I look my best, not really fashionably because I don't really like most of the current fashions. I used to really like shoes but I can't wear the kind I liked anymore. I still like to get shoes that are neat looking . Until they make ladies shoes or sandals with flashing lights I doubt that I will have fashionable shoes. Can't you just see me walking around with lights flashing from my sandals. I can. So I don't dress like my mother even though some members of my family give me clothes that seem to be the sort she would wear. (I can't look at sweatshirts with birds or flowers on them without missing her) . Maybe it was just a mirage.
