I have a six year old daughter that I am told is my mini me. It is hard for me to see the physical resemblances because it is hard to REALLY know what I look like. I spend far more time looking at those close to me than I do myself. I could tell you how my husband has a dimple/crease next to his mouth that only shows when he chews or tries to hold back a laugh. But, what I look like when I laugh, is always a surprise when I see a photo or video.
Though I can’t see the similarities that are more obvious to others, I can see my daughter’s inner workings that I recognize. There are certain looks she gets on her face in different situations that I know EXACTLY what she is thinking, because I was thinking the exact same thing at her age. You would think it would be comforting to know what is going on in your child’s head, but then you remember the life’s lessons you had to learn and realize she will most likely make many of the same mistakes. Though I must say, this girl has a much greater sense of conscience than I did at her age. When I was lying my way in and out of situations, she is confessing her every action :)
