  • yes i do. i have 3 kids. all three have my stubborn streak. i think one has my love for music. i see love of creativity in all-that's me too. i see scatterbrain in one and i can relate sometimes. i have one with add and now i am starting to wonder if he gets that from me as well. i see lvoe for others and all creatures that is me. sometimes i will look and see oh those are my lips or that is my chin. my oldest has my fine hair.

  • I do. I am somewhat impulsive but my 12 yo dd is WAY worse than me. She isn't like me as I have been and am 'girly' She is a tom-boy and doesn't like nail polish, frills, sparkles at all. Boo hoo, wish she was like me 'that way' and boy 'we would have lots of fun'

  • I do - my 13 yo is very loving, and always looking out for others (except his younger sister, lol!) He's also quite the comedian.

  • Yes I do in both of them.
    My older son, likes to read especially quotes and he writes them down, he likes to sing and make up songs, we have the same sense of humor, he is kind and empathetic all the same qualities I have.

    My younger son likes to read, he is funny and very sarcastic at times, he loves to watch movies, he is stubborn but very sensitive.

  • My oldest is my little clone. He looks like me, talks like me, has a lot of my gestures, gets ALL my jokes (scary!), and definitely inherited my family's dry, sardonic wit. He's thoughtful and will bend over backwards for people, but when you make him angry, he GOES OFF! We always joke he has a slow-burning fuse....

    My youngest is like a little emo version of me. He's hypersensitive, generous to the extreme, blows up all the time, but never ever holds a grudge.
