Does my daughter look like Martin Clunes?

I once said that I have some relatives that are really good for ignoring. This post demonstrates just what I mean... 

According to my mother in law, L'il Lovely looks like Martin Clunes. She was quite specific - she meant Martin Clunes as he appears in the TV drama, Doc Martin. Definitely not when he was a baby. She doesn't know what he looked like as a baby. 

So tell me, how would you have responded?

That is the funniest thing I have seen all day. Her smile is a little reminiscent of his smile in that particular picture. But no, I would not say that they favor at all. I think mother in laws come from a different planet. Although, I had better watch what I say because I will be in those shoes one day.

As my pal Emma said, 'She must be going through her cubist phase'.

Let's hope this insanity - and lack of diplomacy - doesn't run in the family.

That is too funny. It's the nose. I ask you - what is that grown man doing walking around with a cute little button nose?
She's beautiful.
When Buddy was a bit slow to start talking my MIL constantly pointed out that his father was carrying on adult conversations by the time he was 16 months.
And when Buddy was 3 and we were struggling with potty training, she told me that his dad was trained by the time he was 6 months!!
Mom-in-laws. They must take some kind class on how to drive us crazy.

oh I get it. First it's the smile is a 'little reminiscent'. Now it's the 'cute little button nose'.

She got to you guys too. I saw the movies - invasion of the body snatchers... stepford wives...
