Her gestures, her diction, her walk, how she laughed.

She demanded a haircut similar to hers, and clothes too.

She wanted everything she had.

 Written for The Daily Post prompt, ‘Copycat’

  1. This is so cute and true for all daughters.My little one loves dressing up with my stuff.It’s an endearing way to bond with my little girl

  2. Very cute post Mayuri. All girls are copycats of their moms and I experience this everyday with my girls. Especially younger one who likes dressing up with my dupattas and my stoles.

  3. I was my mother’s 😀 Then I grew up and became the mirror opposite -_-

  4. Aww.. that’s super-cute! We all want to be like our mothers. don’t we? I used to take her duppatta and tie as my saree too 🙂
