Same winning smile:
Alright, let's be honest. More and more, my daughter is looking less like me and more like this guy:
Yep, he's her dad. Just look at these two:
Granted, the girl's only 2 months old, so who knows what she will end up looking like, but I just thought she would look more like me. The few times Jason and I have picked up Chloe together at school (what we're calling daycare), the teachers have said, "Oh look Chloe, there's you're twin." And they're not referring to me, they're referring to Jason. I smile and laugh on the outside, but I have to say that I'm a little sad on the inside. Ladies, you have to admit that the narcissistic, I-carried-this-baby-for-9-months, labored-and-birthed-this-butterball side of you wants your child to at least obtain a few of your features.
The other day I was telling Jason I was a little sad that people don't say we look more alike, and I said, "Do you think she looks like me at all?" He said, "She has your coloring." I responded, "What! She's white?" No response. So my daughter looks like me because she's caucasian. I've kept this response in the tally of wrong responses my husband has made throughout our relationship. The only way to redact this response from the list, Jason, is to tell me this, "She has your blue eyes, red tinted hair, beauty, and sweet personality." Just for future reference.
Honestly, I think my daughter's perfect and you can't convince me otherwise. I wouldn't change a thing about her. I see myself in her everyday, and it makes me celebrate the blessing I've been given. She's happy and healthy. What more could you ask for? Plus, you got lucky kiddo; looking like your dad is a great thing. I have to admit that he's not too shabby in the looks department. I sure do know how to pick 'em.
Mom, I know you are going to disagree with me. You have to admit that she looks like Jason. I know, I know...you think she's a combination of me and my siblings. We can talk about it on the phone later.
One more thing, dear readers, you will NOT hurt my feelings if you say she looks like Jason. You know that I secretly love it!
