I am so sick and tired of hearing people ask to my face or to my back where my daughter got her blonde hair form.
2yrs ago I was pregnant for the second time the first one I lost but now I was pregnant again and thinking of how my daughter would look.
Thanks to modern tecnology I already had a really good idea how she would look, but I was thinking to my self about if she would have brown or green eyes, will she have my husbands curly hair or my wavy hair? Will her hair be dark brown or will it be black. Then just for fun I imagened her with blue eyes and blonde hair, I thought she would look very pretty that way but me and my husband had dark brown hair and I had hazel eyes and he had brown eyes. Though my mother inlaw, and great grandmother had blonde hair, but I still never thought she would have blonde hair and blue eyes.
When she was pulled out of me my husband very excitedly exclaimed she has blonde hair and blue eyes! I was surprised to hear this not at all what I was expecting to hear, but there she was my tubby little baby with my nose, my husbands dimples, and long lashes. She looked more like him then she did me but I read to expect that babies usually look more like there dad in the begging.
Then the question came first from my mother where did that blonde hair come form? Then again and again, and again I don't know don't baby's come with one color of hair then it changes as they get older I said.
Now I do know about recessive genes and how some times things in your genetic past can just pop up out of no where. Seeing how there was a history of blondes and blue eye people in our family I figured well there's your answer. But still the question still came form the same people even months had past since she has been born where did she get that blonde hair? So I started answering with a smirk she got it form the post lady she has blonde hair and has been delivering us mail even thought we moved three times. (note every time we moved it was with in a 3 block area form the last house.)
They laughed but still to this day they ask where did she get that blonde hair from?
My daughter is almost two years old and we when't to go see her grandmother for a bit and as we where leaving I heard one of my mother inlaw's coworkers ask the question where did she get the blonde hair form? Be cause Travis (my husband) has such dark hair.
This bugged me so much because for years people would ask my husbands parents how they liked having a foreign exchange student in there house. To which they would say we don't have and exchange student? then the people would say but then who is that older boy that's with you? in reference to my husband there son who was not adopted.
You see my husband looks just like his dad right down to the dimples but his skin is 3 shades darker, his hair is darker, his eyes are brown, and he has curly hair. My husband looks like he has some middle eastern in him. Which I found attractive.
So one would think my inlaws would know how it feels to have the color of there child quested.
