With Bean having blue eyes and light hair (for now – the Mister and I both had light hair until we were like, two/three), it can get pretty irritating trying to tell people that he actually does have many of my features! I mean, I can’t say I blame them, it is hard to get past those eyes. But (almost) everything else? Mine! My chin, my cheeks, my mouth, my nose – even my eye – SHAPE! Sometimes I hit my breaking point and like to point this out — but instead of nods of assurance and recognition that my son is in fact, mine – I get worried looks of “this mom has lost her mind, she’s clearly on the verge of a breakdown, let’s slowly walk away.”
But seeing is believing, isn’t it?
