We asked for pictures of mother-child lookalikes, in honor of Mother’s Day. Here are two we received — if you’re seeing Mom on Sunday, send us a pic! We can run a few next week. The resemblance need not be physical. Photos don’t have to be the two (or more) of you side by side, they can be two baby photos, for example.

SAVE MONTCLAIR LOCAL: We're overjoyed to report we've hit our fundraising goal of $230,000 this quarter for Montclair Local Nonprofit News! Montclair has stepped up to say local news matters, and we're hugely grateful. That gives our newsroom, your newsroom, security to operate well into 2022 while we continue to work toward long-term sustainability. We've seen what happens when news operations cut back or shut down. Communities suffer. We've seen it here in Montclair, and we believe you deserve better.
