  • Our daughter has my attitude and my husband's temper. She's very independent and determined, which I think she gets a little from both of us. She likes to do things her way...again, both of us.

  • My kids all have my attitude. I guess I have the more dominant personality.

  • My son has my personality, and my husband's looks. My daughter is a female version of my hubby; she is left handed like him, and she inherited his large green eyes with looooong lashes. They have the same personality. I'm a stay at home mom, though, so both of my children are much more patient and more talkative than my DH. They get that from me!

  • My oldest takes after his father. This is very interesting to me because he never spent any time with his father. He knows him, but his father never had visitation or anything.

    My middle child takes after my husband. He is quiet and reserved like my husband with a huge heart.

    My DD takes after me. She is totally like me with her laid back personality and her free spirit.

  • I hang my head in shame when I say that our 3 yr old is as "bull headed" to quote the DH as I am. Well at least he comes by it honestly lol

  • Interestingly, my ds is very much like my dh and he is adopted by dh- that is until he loses his temper, then he is sooooooo his birthfather! But he is also more like me when it comes to somethings, I have said for most of his life that he is a perfect nature/nurture debate.
