Do you have features that you would have rather not inherited?

For example, your mom's nose or your dad's big feet. What do you wish could have been left out of your genes?

I have ugly feet because I have short toes from my dad's side and I have my mother's ugly fat wide feet. Both my parents are short so I'm really short (5'2). And every day I see my mother's beady little eyes set in my dad's chubby face. It seems the older I get, the more I look like my parents and the more I hate the way I look.
Yea, I'm having a sucky day so I'm really scrutinizing myself, lol.

  • I have these "moles" that my Mom called beauty marks... I hate them. They aren't big, just dark. My Hubby say's they make me unique, and he likes them.. I might have them removed one of these days.

  • Yeah, neither side of my family has big boobs. I got that no boob gene! I hope it didn't pass to my dd. Hub's side, fortunately, has some big ones, so dd has a chance. :)
    On the flip side, when I was pregnant, I prayed and prayed that my kids would get my well defined chin, since hub's family has no chin at all. Yay they both got my chin.

  • yea, lovely, it seemed like anyone close to me made fun of them. Out of love of course, but it still hurts. Funny, my dad never made mention of my feet, and my dad is such a critical person.

  • Yep, I wish I would have inherited a bit more height and also slenderness from my Grandpas family. His sisters were tall (well taller than I am) and thin..... but unfortunately I inherited weight issues (like 90% of my mom's family- they are overweight) and my mom's thighs.
