    Default Do you see yourself in your child?

    Not only in appearance? DD seems to have my personality... The good and the bad, I'm not sure if just that she copies me so much or she's just my kid... Poor thing!
    DS is not like that at all he seems to have his own little personality.

    DS does not really look like me. Personality wise - yes!

    Sleep is like me. He is more sensitive/stubborn - like me. Just in general lol.

    They all have bits and pieces of me. A few certain little quirks. Some seem hereditary and some seem learned

    Not a great deal in the way of personality, though sometimes we find the same things really funny and have a giggling fit together

    He also has the same weird habit as me - biting the inside of his cheeks!

    My DD1 could have almost been a clone of myself. She is not only the double of me as a child, her personality and traits are like mine too. DD2 is a very different child. Genetics are amazing.

    Default Do you see yourself in your child?

    Yep. DS is me. He not only looks like me, he IS me. Like any person I have great aspects and am also flawed. It's hard for me to see his anxiety and watch it manifest over the exact things I stewed over as a child. It's hard to watch his feelings get hurt so easily. The plus is I know how to help him. It also pains me to watch his perfectionism - not the easiest trait to live with.

    But, his heart is big, warm and loving. He's sensitive, introverted, musical, bookish and academic. He's a loyal friend. He can laugh heartily at himself. These are the things I like about myself and it's nice (and kind of weird) to see a little clone of myself living his version of my childhood.

    Some common things I have noticed are:

    Ds talks in his sleep a lot.
    Dd likes doing crafty things.
    Both scared of animals including dogs.
    Dd likes maths
    Dd is shy around other kids but more comfortable with adults

    My DS 21 is like me in looks but his personality is definatly his father. He has his mannerisms and sometimes I hear his voice and think it's my ex. My Dd 18 is like me in all ways

    Yes DS is so like me that I fear for him, I was such an unhappy lonely child (and lonely adult to be honest) and I am doing my best to ensure he doesn't end up like that.

    DD is a mix of us, she has her quiet reserved side but her outgoing in activities is much more like my DH
