Spin Cycle--Of Apples and Trees

The Spin Cycle this week is all about Apples and the trees they don't fall far from.  Are you like your Mother?  Your Father?  Do you see yourself in your kids?
I really don't think I'm all that much like my mother.  Growing up I was told I looked like my father, but since he died when I was a baby, I have no real knowledge of what he was like.  But I can look at my boys and see both myself and Nick in them every day.
Turbo looks like me.  He has Nick's outgoing personality--every one is a potential friend. Turbo has Nick's hands.  He got my ears.  He got Nick's ability to wiggle his ears. He enjoys the extras on DVDs like I do. Turbo walks and talks in his sleep like Nick does on occasion. Turbo loves to build--kits and models and Legos. I love to build models--following directions to get a cool end result is fun.



And then we have Bruiser.  He looks like Nick. He twists his hair like I do. He is a bit shy is social situations, until he's comfortable, much like I am.  Bruiser talks in his sleep, again like Nick. Bruisr loves to do anything with tools and loves to draw, which makes Nick's day as he has always been very much about art and building things.

Bruiser's smile is just like his daddy's.
The horn of hair is where he twists.

The Apples in our house definitely didn't fall far from the tree.
It truly is interesting to see how the genetics play out in your kids.
Go see Gretchen for more Apple/Tree spins.

In our house, my first born is A LOT like dad and our second is mostly me. In terms of personality and everything. It is very cool to see those traits manifest in them.

Ha we talk about this all the time. Other than being a girl i/o a boy Cat is a duplicate copy of her dad. The only thing that she got from me is how tenacious she can be.

Tiger on the other hand is a carbon copy of my brother.

Somewhere my genes got 'lost' in the mix.
