When Your Child Inherits the Worst of You


Heredity can be a real pain! I recently brought my oldest child, Hedley, to the orthodontist for the first time and it ended up being a very disheartening parenting moment. We discovered that he doesn’t have some of his adult teeth growing in on the bottom, which is exactly what I experienced growing up.

It was hard for me to discover that my child inherited traits that I’ve never liked about myself.

Have you experienced anything like this, where you realize your child shares one of your least favorite physical or personality traits? Tell me in the comments!
