A Cherry Pip


I was curious whether there was any resemblance. I still can't see it. Although we both look a bit gormless.

PS. It's dark, I know, even at the age of 5 I couldn't stand up to the scrutiny of harsh lighting, and when I used the flash I had a strange halo effect. I really must work out how to use the scanner.

On the contrary...I believe I'm seeing quite a bit of gorm. :)

What a perky little pip you were! And the resemblance is unmistakable. Love the last post. Proud mama! :)

It's funny, I'd always imagined you as older than this.

Strange Halo effect?

Were there any strange circumstances around the boy's birth? 3 foreign blokes on camels or unusual astral phenomena?

Gosh, you're so cute your Royal Pie-ness!
You two are clones.
I would say that all of the cherry pie genes gobbled up all of the other genes like PacMan.

Seriously, you have the same grin, same nose, and same shaped eyes, except yours are more open than his as he's grinning harder.

Interestingly, kids often look more like their mother until they grow up - it's supposed to have an evolutionary basis, so the current man can't tell who the father is and therefore doesn't kill it (because it might be his).

I don't know what it say about me, that I find this kind of stuff interesting....

I was going to commend your bravery for posting Jack's school pic on the net where his mates might find it, but I'm sure the cute pic of his Mum more than makes amends!

Oh yes, I can see a resemblance.

" I really must work out how to use the scanner."

Same here - I've never been able to get the hang of them.

Cherrypie, what a cute picture. And both of you have the same eyes and facial structure. It must be what Anna said in her comment! It would not do to have our kids look like the pool guy, for example!

By the way, Anna, what that comment says about you is that you would be an exceptional anthropologist!

Carmenzta, I'm studying psychology and my particular interest is evolutionary psychology, so I do hope you're right there!

I'll buy into Anna's evolutionary idea, this is something that interests me, the forces of nature upon us etc. I looked like my Mummy as a kid, now I'm mid-thirties I look ever more like my Daddy; bald, chubby, pout when I sleep like a baby, same grin and eyes...yep, I reckon on a sample of one, Anna is right.

Oh no you won't!!

In our family, I had my mother's features whereas my sister took after my dad, which was a bit strange. Although I didn't see her till she was grown up, as she's 18 years older than me, so it could be that she changed at some point, as per Anna's comments.

Anna,
What an interesting field. I got my BA in Sociology/Anthropology eons ago so I find that theory fascinating! Good luck with your studies.

Both my sons looked like me until now that they are 21 and 19 they are developing certain of their father's traits. I still love them very much, anyway.

Not being "Chiefly British" as dictionary.com describes the term, I had to look up "gormless."

I don't think so at all.

Your wit and intelligence burst out from your site, Cherry Pie, making us smile.

:)
