My sister has a daughter who is light skinned as if her father was white…but he is not he is light skinned. Anyway her daughter has her eyes and height, her lips…her dads forehead and nappy hair..(I say that with love) and so she resembles her mother mostly…where my son looks nada like me….
Its one thing when your child is a different shade then you or the same shade and had features that are yours, but a whole nother thing when your child is a different shade, and has not one features that is yours… (when you did all the work of carrying…LOL)
Im Black American, my husband is South Korean and our son looks 100% like his father…
So when we are out and about,,,just my baby and me, I get a lot of looks as many of you do as well….the thing is im sure they are not guessing his race because he looks Asian…
They are guessing what am I doing with him and vis versa…
Not to mention all friends and family members have the reactions of “WOW!!!! When they first see him, some try to down play it, but there eyes say it all….and then there are strangers who have the nerve to ask…and pretty much have the same reaction
The other day I was at the park with my son who is from a previous relationship, and this group of parents just kept looking over at me and my sister as we were playing with my son, its was the “How does that work” curious looks…Grrrrrr
So how many of you have babies or kids that look nothing like you…not one thing..
I will add that I do have a gap in my teeth and it is hereditary from my fathers side…my son will have that when he gets teeth…so I guess he has something that is me, but you can only see that when he smiles…LOL
