  • I have never heard this before. My oldest looks just like his Dad and our youngest looks just like me. :-)

  • No I dont think so. Aside from that not making sense from a biological standpoint, my son looks just like his dad.

  • Nope. My daugter is the spitting image of me. My son is all his Daddy. I've had people tell me he looks like me, then his Dad walked into the room and they apologized and say it's scary how much he looks like his dad. Who looks JUST like his dad, who looked JUST like his dad.

  • No. My brother was a dead ringer for my dad as a little boy. And my dad was a dead ringer for his dad as a little boy. As adults, they don't seen to favor either parent - they just look like themselves.

  • Nope. My DAUGHTERS look like me. Son looks like his dad. This may be the case, SOMETIMES, but I think it's pretty rare.
