Did you pass it on to one of your children?

DH passed on his musical talent. I passed on my craftiness and love for reading. Unfortunately she also inherited my attitude and DHs stubbornness.

 My 7 year old got my love of reading.  She can read a book in 24 hours.

My DD got my perfectionism from me, but totally got her musical ear and rhythm from Daddy.

I read incredibly quickly, and it appears I've passed that on to DS, as well as my facility for languages.

 My hubby calls me a jack of all trades, and I emphasize on the master of none. I can play just about any isntrument, if you give me a week tops to learn it. (I currently can pass off playing violin, piano, I'm far better at saxophone, and I've been playing clarinet since grade school). I'm quite crafty...but I have to actually finish many of the started projects. I get 99% there...and stop.... (like my niece's scarf that has been half finished for over a year, a scrap book of a camping trip friends and I went on years ago that only needs the last few pages to be attached into the book, and our basement we finished ourselves, still only needs the molding put up...)
Unfortuantly, it would appear my daughter can't keep a beat to save her life, but she really wants to learn violin (which is why I learned it in the first place). We're still on page 1 of her lesson book for the last 2 yrs.... She loves to do crafts, but you can never tell what it is she's making, and when you ask....you wish you hadn't....
It's too early to tell with my little guy if he's picked up any of my "talents."
So far they both inhereted stubborness from both hubby and me, but I don't really call that a talent lol.

My imagination.  My boys have definately inherited it.  I am an idea person.

I am good at remembering us less information. But my kids have not inherited that.
