Flashback Friday

This picture hangs in my parents' hallway.

It's my Mum and I, drawn when I was about 4 at Disneyland. The story goes that I refused to sit still, so my mother had to sit with me and the artist unexpectedly drew her too because our profiles were so similar. It's true and as I get older I see myself looking more like her.

I've always thought that my boys look just like their Dad. One day we were on the bus and an elderly lady commented how much my eldest son looked like me. I responded with my usual "people only say that until they meet his father" comment. But she told me that was only people who hadn't viewed our profiles.

Is it possible to have a genetically dominant profile?

I think so... hmm...

The day Griffin was born he was the spitting image of Aaron. All he needed was a pair of glasses. Now, everyone says he's the spitting image of me, which I think is hilarious -- I still see him (and Darwin) as a little Aaron.

Not only do I look like my mother, I'm now begining to say all those things she said, that I always said I'd never say to my children!!
