What personalty and look does your kids have more of ? YOU or HUSBAND ?

I just think its so funny how we can all come from the same parents and look and act so different from each other. I know my brother was lucky to get green eyes from our mom when i got stuck with brown lol.

I look at my kids and they are so different and the at the same time they can act the same. The older one and my girl have the same personalty and the other two are kind of the same. They all look different like if their not related lol every one says they look more like me then their dad. My kids all have the same dad but you would be leave it. lol. The kids have dark hair but the older one has lighter hair. The two older boys have freckles on their face and the other kids dont lol.. My kids have from their dad Mexican and from me they have Irish, Polish, Indian.

I always think about what they will be like when they are all grown up. How will they live, what will they be and if i have done a good job as a mother to them.

  • well, my oldest looks just like me and his personality is just like me too. hates to get up in the morning, would rather not try than to fail, doesn't like to be criticized, shy when first in a new situation. my middle child looks just like his father and is a piece of work. i'm assuming that's how hubby was when he was small because i know he didn't get that from me! the youngest doesn't look like either one of us and she is a very sweet baby. i don't know where she came from!

  • You don't just get genetics from your parents, but also from grandparents and great grandparents, and so on. There's a whole history of genetics that runs through our bodies outside of those of our parents'.

    My oldest and youngest (both boys) got my husbands blonde hair (though my youngest's is more red) and blue eyes. They're both tall and slender like my husband as well. Where as my daughter is a little chunk with brown/red hair and brown eyes. She gets those traits from my side of the family. She's tall as well, which comes from both my husbands' and my side of the family. (Just not from me directly as I'm only 5'5)

    My oldest son has my husband's laid back, easy going, and goofy nature. While my daughter is hard headed, stuborn, and has a fiery temper like me. It's hard to say what my youngest is like really, because he's only a month old. However, as of right now he appears to have a great impatients.

  • Our oldest looks like the milkman's baby. LOL. My LP is half Japanese/half Irish. He was born with blonde hair and some Asian features, but his hair darkened very quickly. Our oldest was born blonde and has stayed that it looks like she is going to be really tall like both her grandpas, and we are both shorter. The child acts JUST. LIKE. ME. She is stubborn, impulsive, and mouthy. LOL

    Our youngest looks just like me, but if you know my LP is half Japanese, you can see it in her eyes a bit. She acts just like her daddy though. She is much calmer and more reserved than her sister and I are. She thinks everything through carefully before she does it, and watches people to see what "flies" and what doesn't.

    We are pregnant with our third DD and I can't wait to see what we end up with.

  • My oldest is just like me and our DS is just like my DH. Our third and 4th are mixtures between the two of us, they are still developing their personalities. So we have to wait and see.
