Twinning: precious images of moms and their mini-mes to get you in your feels for Mother's Day


None of us likes to admit it but we tend to become more and more like our parents as we get older. 

But, lest we forget, there was a time when all we wanted to do was be just like our mommies. 

And you know what they say about a mother's intuition never being wrong – these mothers wanted to start off the imitation process early. 

Is there anything wrong with emulating the woman who cared for your helpless baby self? 

We'd say, after nine months of housing their little ones inside their bodies, enduring bodily and emotional trauma to bring them into the world, mothers deserve to have a little dress up-fun

And in the wise words of Dr. Seuss:

“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.”

Herewith, some of the sweetest momma-kid twinnning moments ever.
