  • They both look exactly like me with a tiny touch of dh lol. They act like me when they get excited too, they do this little dance that I swear I did not teach them. They were doing it as infants! They both crave affection like me too.

  • Definitely. Both my girls do things I used to do as a kid, and so do my boys! They even do that same little smirk I used to do, and my 8 year old has my eye-roll-huff combo down PAT. lol

  • My younger daughter acts very, very much like me. And my older daughter is like a miniature of my DH. It's odd that some of the common personality traits are not even anything taught but just seemed to be inherent in them from the start.

  • He has my attitude but DH family says he is just like daddy when he was that age. I can believe that but he still has my attitude & my blue eyes. :) I call them his bluetiful eyes! He trys to use them to get what he wants but doesn't work! LOL!

  • hahaha,sorry to laugh but i hear it all the time how i did the same rotten things my son does......

    when i was little:
    i ate fingernail polish,quarters,dimes,pennies,but no nickles.....i swallowed watch batteries and beads,ive eaten paper and chewed on styrafoam cups,i chewed on my hair.....
    my son has swallowed a 12 mm button battery from a book light,stuck an entire lollypop in his mouth (stick and all),stuck a bead up his nose,put straws up his nose,had pennies and the other coins in his mouth (not at the same time of course),eaten paper,eaten bits and pieces of his toys for no reason other than he was bored.....

    we are so much alike its scary!! i tried to drive my moms car when i was his age and he has tried to do the same to me when he was 3 years old....he has locked me out of my own car,ive done that to my mom........he has thrown things in the toilet and flushed,ive done the same thing.....

  • my son looks like his dad and yes he even acts like his dad sometimes.....
    BUT-he is just like me!!

  • More that they look like me at times, but for the most part they act a lot differently than I did. I was always scared. Afraid I would do something wrong and get in trouble. I was aprehensive about everything. Neither of my boys displayed this, they were never afraid of anything-run rell-mell into every situation. Friendly where I was shy. So I think they must be like my DH was when he was little.

  • My only DD looks and reminds me a lot of me when i was younger. Freaks me out because that means when he gets a few years older she gonna blossem like flower. and there wont a thing i can do about it. Lets just say i feel bad for her because of her dad and i feel bad for her dad because she gonna give him heartattackas. LOL. My sons reminds me of DH.
