Do you ever look at your kids and say; "WOW!! They are so much like me!"
It often happens to me when Char shows traits of myself that I don't exactly love. Then I am embarrassed because I know where she got it from. Two things that bother me is she is OPINIONATED and STUBBORN.
Other times Char shows some good things that I know she got from me. Like being remorseful. I am a big believer in apologizing to her if I make a mistake. I am human and am not always right. I certainly know she DOES NOT get that from her father. Chris NEVER admits when he is wrong!!! Charlotte is also very sarcastic with a dry whit. Both Chris and I are sarcastic but Chris has the dry whit. He comes out with things that you would never expect and it is funny.
Well, I can tell you this much. None of them have my common sense. They get that, or lack of from Greg's side .LOL
Bianca is like me in that she would prefer a book, warm jammies at home than going out to a crowded place any day. Mia has my culinary adventurous side and love for all things fashion, she's a girly girl just like me. Lucia definitely has my "never give up, soldier on" streak. If you squeak long enough, someone will notice.
Mia gets her laid back personality from Greg. She'll go with the flow as long as she's having fun just like her daddy. Bianca is feisty and will take on anyone who dares wrong the weak or voiceless. Greg and I both share that trait. Lucy is a love bug also like both Greg and I.
All three girls can turn and get cranky at the drop of a hat. Sadly, that's me too...
My husband and Zachary have identical personalities. Especially about running. They also have the same stride when running.
Benjamin likes the same foods as me, and talks non-stop like me, but is like his father in many ways also. He is also much more social and conscious of his peers more than either of us. Like he just asked for the expensive socks all the boys are wearing, the rest of us would just wear practical socks.
