Do you look like a mother?

One of my darling SIL's many criticisms of me is that I don't look or present myself like a mother (doesn't she sound like a peach). Obviously there's no set way for anyone to look but I thought I'd ask. 

Do you think you fit the mold of what people expect a mother to look like?

ETA: She commented that under this photo.

And she acted suprised when I got offended. Do any of you want to trade SILswith me?

Like a frazzled crazy woman? Yes, I do look that way lol

Seriously tho, no. I get " you're too young to have kids" all the time.

  Is she on CM, because according to some, there are ways a mother is SUPPOSED to look, dress and act.

You don't look old enough to have kids. Did I succeed in making you feel young? Cuz that was the intent :)

Yes, I am often compared to a modernized 50's housewife. I have a very conservative yet stylish look.

Yup. I'm depressed, fat, and frumpy. Definitely look like a "mom" according to cm standards.
