Anne notices how close Margot is with mother. Her father praises Margot a lot. Anne wants this praise too but she also, being and adolescent, assert herself as an individual. Check out Anne's quote,

"I only look at her as a mother, and she just doesn't succeed in being that to me; I have to be my own mother. I've drawn myself apart from them all; I am my own skipper and later on I shall see where I come to land. All this comes about particularly because I have in my mind's eye an image of what a perfect mother and wife should be; and in her whom I must call 'Mother' I find no trace of that image."

Anne is trying to find her own identity. Is she the goofy joking Anne or the serious reflective Ann. Yes, it's the angst of being a teenager!
