There’s an old wives tale saying that when children are born, they look like their fathers so that the father feels bonded to the child and doesn’t take off.

I think that people will tell the mom that because, when a baby comes out… well it’s not always cute RIGHT AWAY, so that makes mom feel a little bit better.  All scrunchy and wrinkly and crying…

My kids all look like me alot.  As my eldest gets older, I think he might look a little more like my husband, because 13 year old boys definitely start looking less like mama.

Sometimes I meet a child and I think, wow they look like mom.  Then I meet dad, and I think, wow they look like dad.  Then I realize – they actually look like each other.  Which I thought was super weird until I realized that my husband and I probably look a little bit alike as well.  Interesting…
