My good ones first, dark, long curly eyelashes. Very thick hair, fine strands but a lot of it and a bit wavy, so that is in the good- bad bit.
Bad - lots of dark hair, legs, face but not so much on my arms and also a teeny tiny jaw that cant only handle 24 teeth

I passed on the eyelashes to my DS and the reddish hair, wavy hair to my DD but hers is different to mine and the smallish mouth to her. I was so glad that she was hairless, my mum, sister, nieces, all have facial hair and I was so happy for my DD not to be troubled by that throughout her life.

I look exactly like my dad's side of the family but everyone said I looked like mum. If you didn't know better you would think my dad's side was British Royalty, small mouths, pointy noses

Just a fun thread to see what you Peas think

I'm still wondering if my DD is related to me sometimes. J/K

She's taller than I am eventhough she's only 15. She also has olive skin and thick hair. I'm pretty light-skinned and have very thin hair. I think she got her skin tone from my side but I'm still jealous of her gorgeous skin!

My DS is 12 and looks a lot like me. However, all 7 men on both sides of the family are over 6' and he is still small for his age. I'm thinking he'll sprout late like Dh's brother, or at least I'm hoping. He's very self-confident, but I hate to think being short could hinder him in the dating world later.

I inherited my mom's skin that gets stretch marks and that scars very easily, and passed that on to my kids.

On the flip side, even though she's very pale caucasian, my dad is Native so it's a nice colour, an olive skin tone for that perpetual tan look.

On the negative side, also from my mom, lol, a cowlick, which both of my boys inherited but dd escaped.

As a positive, thick, fast growing hair with a natural wave.

There is a dimple that runs on my dad's side. Every single person born to the family has that dimple except for 1 (and there have been questions about this person's lineage long before the lack of dimple was noticed because of some funny business going on at that time).

DS has my sense of humor, but it has an acidic quality that can get him in trouble. I guess he is funnier than I have ever been, but at least the foundation of it is from me. My personality is similar to my dad, so I guess that's three generations. Dad is not like either of parents, so it skipped a generation for him.

DD is a mini-me. She's cuter and has a better personality, but her body build is exactly mine (she's about five pounds lighter, but we can wear the same clothes). Her mannerisms are similar and we often find ourselves doing the same things at the same time. Last night it was humming to something on the radio. The song was about half done when we started humming at the exact same time.

We spend a lot of time together with sports and the horses, so we have a lot of time to compare ourselves. I think it's great that she has a roadmap of how she could look at my age if she takes care of herself. We are both built on the same pattern as my mom, so dd also knows what she'll look like if she DOESN'T take care of her self, lol. (Sorry, mom.)

She is not so happy with my body's reaction to stress (my body shuts down for a few hours and I am really sick), but at least I know how to handle it and can help her work through it when she gets to that point in her life. My knees also pop a lot, and hers are already starting it....and she's only 13.

Otherwise, I'm a strong, independent woman. She is with me as I problem solve my way through life, and I hope that if she didn't inherit that, at least she have it through nurture.

I have my dad's long legs and my mom's short waist. Makes buying pants a pain sometimes. Otherwise I'm a pretty good mix of both of them. My brother and my dad are carbon copies.

DD is very nearly a total mini-me except for her ears (poor thing), widow's peak, and her slight cleft chin. She gets those from her dad. She has my eyes, my underbite, my long legs. When we smile one eye scrunches up just a little more than the other. Her hair grew in dark red then turned blonde, then brown, which is exactly what mine did as a baby. She gets blonde highlights in the summer.

I only passed on my large, almond shaped brown eyes and my olive, easily tanned skin. Every single other thing LO got from his dad. His build, his hair, his loooong, THICK eyelashes.

I think my family is related to Sasquatch, so the kids and I have the wonderful eyelashes, but I've noticed lately that DS1 is developing the unibrow that I'd have if I didn't take care of it. I'm not sure how to tell him about it so he can take care of it... I don't want to make him self-conscious if he's not

I have one son with brown eyes and one son with blue eyes. I have brown and their dad has blue. I love that we have both colors of eyes represented.

My husband has a chin dimple that I love. Both of our daughters inherited it. My oldest daughter hates it. She is a very pretty girl and she is not old enough to realize that she picked up a trait that many people find attractive. I always point out good looking people who have them and she will admit that they are good looking, but she can't see it in herself.

Inherited terrible metabolism and passed it on.

Also inherited really good hair and have passed that on. And good skin. Dh had bad acne as a teen; I had the occasional single pimple and our girls (so far, knock wood) have my skin. My mom is 71 and has only a few grey hairs; I'm 47 and have none. That's a good one I inherited.

DS and I have the same exact dimples- you literally could map out our faces and they would be geographically the same.

I have inherited my grey hair from my mom. She was completely grey by age 50. Thank God I have a great stylist. Only she knows how much grey I really have.

I inherited the tendency to bruise really easily in places no one else would ever bruise. I passed that on to dd. I touch my leg to something and a huge bruise comes up. We went water skiing the other day and you should see my legs just from slapping the water as I fell. Dd has bruises all over her arms from falling.

I also inherited good hair. I am 60 and have only a few gray hairs. Dd has my hair color and strength. Thank goodness because dh went bald early in graduate school LOL. She did inherit his bowed legs...

Interesting thread.

Fun thread!

The good: Height - I am 6'1" and all my kids are tall. My high metabolism.

The bad: Pectus excavatum (funnel chest), my middle son has it. I was lucky because I am a woman and could hide it with a shirt. He's not so lucky. I'm also sad because he already has complained of chest pains because of it. Also, my super-fair and easily sunburned complexion has been bestowed upon two out of my three kids.

The good- my height! Both my husband and myself are tall people and are girls have always been at the top of the charts!

the bad- my eyesight! Boo! My poor dd has been in glasses since she was 6 and her eyes continue to get worse. But our eyes are a pretty blue, so maybe it's a trade off...

The bad - my dad's legs, which are big and muscular and looked much better on him than they do on me or my younger daughter. Also his wide feet, which means that neither me nor my dd will ever enjoy little strappy sandals.

The good - I don't know. My best feature is probably my eyes but the girls both got their daddy's big blue eyes.

DD is built just like me. Just hope that she inherited some heighth from my dad's side. She inheirted her skin from DH, very sensitive to adhesives and lotions. Actually DS is the same. She also got DH's short stubby "Flintstones" toes, poor girl. She tends to get a unibrow as well, so she gets it waxed fairly often (she's 11). She has great straight thick hair that she doesn't like now (wants it curly). Thanks to me. She's not very tall, but hopefully will be taller than me. I am 5'3".

DS inherited his height from my dad I think. He's almost 5'10 and is only 14. He'll be taller than both DH and I. He's built just like DH. He also inherited my dad's blue eyes. It's pretty funny, he has a lot of my dad in him and a lot of his mannerisms and my dad lives across the country and we don't get to see him very often. Weird how genetics wor.k.

I am 43 and I don't have many grey hairs. Both my grandma's were pretty grey and I remember them being that way forever. My mom has died her hair since she was 14 so I have no idea how grey she really is. My dad isn't completely gray yet. So who knows. I am not complaining

My dad who got his father's tall and thin frame passed it right along to me. It is very appreciated .

I haven't passed anything to anyone yet, but I hope my kids get my husband's gorgeous straight teeth (without braces). I have a small jaw that isn't ideal for anything.

I also passed on my blue eyes.

DH and I are both built similarly in that we have longer torsos and shorter legs. I'm just short in general. Both of our kids are built the same. Neither of them can wear the size of pants that corresponds with their age anywhere and need to size down. I just bought DS2 12-18 mo shorts yesterday and they're fine. He's 2.5. His 2T's look like capris or even floods. DS1 is on the shorter side (41" at 4.5), and DS2 is average height so far (36.5" at 2.5).

Both DS have our long eyelashes. Both are having their adenoids and tonsils removed. I had mine out at 7, DH last month. DS1 is having his removed on the 24th, and we go back to the ENT in a few months for DS2.

Oh, and we're doing vision checks every six months for DS1. His farsightedness is not improving as it should be by this age. One last chance. He starts K in September, so I think this is it. I've worn glasses or contacts for 30 years.

My younger son has my curly hair and my flintstone feet. We call them our flippers. My older son also has fairly curly hair but nothing at all like his brother's. The older one looks a lot like the men in my husband's family. They all resemble each other and he fits right in.

My son has my eyes, as do many others in my mom's side of the family. Mine are green, son's are blue. They're our feature we get complimented on the most.

I think he lucked out of all my bad features. My eyes are all he got from me it seems. And he avoided DH's family nose. He is otherwise 100% my DH's mini-me.

Bad feature, my hair is thin and fine, my DD got that from me. The good thing is she can grow hers pretty long I can't get mine to grow much past my shoulder blades.

Bad feature my feet, my DD inherited them from me.

I inherited my Dad's nose and as far as I can tell, did not pass it on. My youngest looks just like me, right down the outbreak of freckles in the summer which I got from my Mom. I look a lot like Mom, she looks like her Mom who is now 93. I only hope we both inherited the long life-spans of the Pett women (my great grandmother was 94 when she passed).

Both of my boys have gotten their Dad's bright blue eyes although my youngest is starting to have brown pop up so I think he's going to have eyes that look blue on some days and more hazel/brown on others. Mine go from blue to green to hazel depending on mood and amount of sun. My oldest has rich blue eyes that is going to catch him a girl or two.

On the bad side - they both have my crooked teeth. I only hope they didn't get weak teeth too.

I got my Dads blond hair and blue eyes but none of my kids got either. Poor kids they would tell you they only inherited some bad things. I have two ds, one is 6'1", the other is 5'5" (if that). The shorter one gets that from my side of the family (my Dads side) and the taller one gets that probably from my other side (Moms side). My 31 yr old is bald and began losing hair (though he shaves in bald now) in his early 20s. (he blames that on my side though no one was bald until they were much older)
My Dh is Irish and Italian. All my kids got dark hair and dark eyes but only dd got the pale Irish skin (that never tans). She would say she got ears that stick out from dh and lots of hair. She has a tendency to have my big legs (though she is much thinner than me).
On the good side, my dd has her Dads musical interest and talent and my ds both have both of our intellect and curiosity for learning. Both my younger son and dd have migraines which I also have and other ds has lots of allergies which dh has.

From my Mom, apple shape and distinctive eyebrow lines.

From my Dad, height and witty sense of humor.

Both parents have thick hair which I got as well.

So, I'm tall but with a large apple shaped belly area and have a witty sense of humor and shows my distinctive eyebrow area when I laugh.

My kiddos all have my long eyelashes and a thick head of hair. Youngest will be tall I'm pretty sure.

I have hazel eyes from both my Mom and Dad and I've passed those down to both DSs. My DD has blue eyes from her Dad.

I have dimples too but I'm not sure where I got those, maybe my Dad, but I've passed those down to both DSs too. They also have my light olive skin which I got my Dad. DD is fair like her Dad. She has red hair too and we have no idea where that came from.

I had teenage acne and I've passed that on to my two oldest. DD's is not that bad, DS's is a little worse.

Thinking about it, face wise, DD looks like me except for the fair skin, blue eyes and red hair and DSs look like DH except for the light olive skin and hazel eyes.

My naturally curly hair can be both bad or good depending. All 3 of my dd's have followed my hair pattern so fair. Spiral curls as toddlers, wavy as pre-teens, curls came back during puberty 13/14 and continued to get curlier. I guess we'll see how curly their hair gets. I have tight spirals. My oldest dd is 13 and she tries to brush the curl she does have out. 10yo is going through the wavy stage, and my 5yo still has her curls.

I just hope they have their dad's eyesight not mine. My 10yo wears glasses, but her perscription isn't as bad as mine was at her age. 13yo hasn't had any visions problems yet.

Both of my kids were lucky and got my good skin. Neither of them suffered from much acne as teenagers.

Older DS has my dimples and green eyes, but I don't know which ancestor I got them from. He also inherited my allergy to codeine and the tendency to get very sick from most medications/anesthesia, which I in turn seem to have inherited from my mother.

Younger DS has very thick, curly hair like me. He also got the stocky German build that I have from my family, although he is much taller, like his dad. He also has my very pale skin.

I passed on my super-thick hair. Time will tell if they hate it or love it. On the bad side, I passed on my poor vision, and my oldest DD has TMJ problems just like me.

I'm a little sad that neither daughter got my green eyes. One has her dad's dark brown and the other has blue.

Inherited Good and passed on~~~1. the ability to fall asleep any where, any time. All my kids are good sleepers too. Have been since they were babies. 2. Freakishly low cholesterol. Our family has the cholesterol of a fetus. 3. Good teeth. Our dentist tells us every time that we have the perfect oral flora combination.

Inherited bad and passed on~~~1. Procrastinators...my parents are, I am and my children are. . Thankfully my DH isn't. 2. Stubborn...I'm starting to see my mother in me. Soon my daughter will be like me.

Good physical features: Long lean legs and naturally blonde hair with blue blue eyes.

Bad physical features: A nose that naturally has a bump in the middle so it looks like we've broken it several times! Crooked teeth.

Great teeth! As in, very healthy teeth. My DH has had so many dental procedures and my dad has, too. And my inlaws. I'm happy that I've never even had novocaine for the one filling I got 20 years ago. My sister got the healthy teeth too, and it appears my kids do. Neither of them has ever had a cavity, in spite of sometimes rather lax brushing (you can only nag a teenager so much about that).

Unfortunately I inherited my Dad's nose which I chose to change several years ago.

DH & I both have thick hair which we've passed along to DSs. Older DS inherited DH's multiple cowlicks.

Younger DS inherited my dimples thanks to my Dad. He also seems to have inherited my smile, sadly. He also inherited DH's poor vision.

Both inherited my family's eyelashes. Theirs are far longer and more beautiful than mine though.

Older DS is a mini DH minus my hair color. Younger DS has my mouth structure but still looks a lot like DH.

Hopefully both will inherit our skin because neither DH nor myself had acne issues.

Both DS thankfully have high intelligence levels thanks to their father. I'm not dumb by any means but certainly think & understand differently than the three of them.

Physically 3 boys look like me so I passed on beautiful eyes, thick hair, great complexion. They also have my butt which can be good or bad. It's out there like a Kardashian

My great grandfather was Filipino and he Passed on amazing skin thick lashes and wavy hair. A bad thing that I inherited was the fact that I have eyebrows only viewable under a microscope

I passed on my green eyes and left-handedness to both my boys.

Good: light, olive colored skin with a very clear complexion, bright, brown eyes, long eyelashes and a pretty awesome smile. (Both of my kids have these features)

Bad: bump on the nose DD got this one but DS did not.

I have a handful of bad that I inherited. I've got awful joints - knees and hips - that I got from my dad. I've got my mom's soft teeth and the last 3 toes on my feet are definitely from my mom. They're chubby. My sister and I also have what we call "elf toes" where the tip of our big toes point up just a tiny bit.. but I'm not sure where that came from.

I've got my mom's fine hair. Good because she still has it all and she has no grey, but bad just because it's so fine. On the other hand, my sister got my dad's thick curly hair, but also started turning grey when she was in her early 20s like him.

I also have a one eye that is ever so slightly smaller and set at a down angle. It's really only noticeable in some photos where it seems to be magnified. I'm not sure where it came from, but just the other day I saw my cousins senior picture, and he has that *exact* same eye.

I've got my dad's awful sense of organization. I live in clutter and I struggle terribly with it. If it wasn't for my mom, I think my dad's house would look just like mine.

Phew. I'm sure my parents passed along better stuff than that, I'm just coming up blank.

my 3 look just like their dad... so anything "bad" came from him!!!

my dd got his hair color.. (altho red runs on both sides),, but she has the most gorgeous hair, and color (auburn) to die for... luckily the boys got brown hair (one light and one dark)... because dh HATED being a redhead!!

my eyes are blue.. they all have brown.. my youngest has very fair skin like me...and freckles,, but both of us had freckles also..
