27 Side-By-Side Photos Of Moms And Kids That Look Identical

The apple really doesn't fall far from the tree.

Kids often look like their parents, but it can be downright startling when you see the uncanny resemblance in side-by-side photos. In honor of Mother's Day, we asked moms in the HuffPost Parents community to share photos of themselves and their kids at the same age, and the side-by-side photos are amazing. Check them out and share yours in the comments below.
