She looks just like her daddy
Why is it that it annoys me SO much when people (always women) tell me that my kids look like their dad??? I obviously think he's attractive and chose to have kids with him. But it grates on my nerves every time I hear it.
Maybe it's that I don't agree. Sure they both have resemblance to us but even our own parents don't think the kids are spitting images of either of us. Aaron and I agree that they are a perfect combination of us.
Maybe it's that it takes me out of the equation. As if I didn't carry these little people around in my uterus for 9 months and squeeze them out of a tiny opening and nurse them for a long time, often overnight, and completely become sleep deprived in caring for them. Only seems fair that they would resemble me a little. Right?
And I know it doesn't matter. They are beautiful kids and are perfect. Somehow it just makes me crazy when people are so determined that they look just like daddy.
