I have dark brown hair with red tones and my son has red. Yes, it's from his grand parents but I still get weird looks. (Like I'm some kind of baby snatcher/or I adopted but got a white baby aka like I'm racist or something) it's very stressfull. I also get the OMG LOOK AT THAT HAIR!!! comment a lot like wow where'd he get that from.....

Does any one else have this problem or am I just worried about everything. lol

I get that about my daughter's eyes. They are settling on hazel. I have vary dark brown almost black eyes. My husband has fairly light brown eyes. His dad has blue and my grandmother had hazel.

I've even heard people ask my husband if she was his! I was so pissed off and snapped "whose else would it be!"

I have hazel eyes and dark brown hair, my youngest daughter has bright blue eyes and blonde hair, she has my eye shape and my face shape but thats it. Her dad has brown hair and hazel eyes too! People usually think i am babysitting her, till she starts calling me mommy. My other daughter is the spitting image of me: brown hair and hazel eyes and my facial features

Don't worry about it, we're both dark and my son is blonde. We were both blonde as babies though.

LOL my daughter got the fair side of both mine and hubby's heritage. Eg both me and my hubby are brown hair brown eyes. Xiva is red/blond with greeny-blue eyes. She is a spitting image of my eldest niece and my father in law (except the eyes Xiva has my dad's eyes). I was the 1st generation born on my father's side with brown eyes and hair and even tan (no people its not just laying around in the sun-i was born this color. I swear if anyone else wants to tell me that tanning is a scar then i'll slap em, I've put with those comments since i was 5, im now 22). so It depends really on any looks that skip generations. We get strange looks when we are on a family outing (just us three), but if hubby's mum or my dad joins us then people tend to mellow their reactions to the differences between us. Its really annoying when really nosy people walk up to my hubby and asks "are you sure that kid is yours?" I tell them to mind their own business. Hubby fires up pretty fast as any father would i suppose. But when you get all of us together (both sides), xiva looks like an even mix between both.

I also have dark brown hair with red tones in it....but when I was a baby my hair was very, very, blonde! It didn't darken until I was in Kindergarten, and it went from blonde, to light brown, to med. brown, then finally to dark brown...y'know very gradually...My son has blonde hair too, and now it's starting to darken up....Perhaps your son's will as well. I would just ignore people who stare like that. It's rude and besides, you know that the hair color runs in your family, so you shouldn't let people make you feel awkward about it. If someone actually says anything about it, just say something like "My family is of Irish and/or Scottish descent". But it's really no one's business.

I have dark hair, only got tints of red after I was married! (strange!) I have never dyed or bleached my hair either. My husband has light hair and our son has light hair like him. I love it but think it would be cool to have a girl with dark hair like me sometime!
