A conversation with a 16 year old

As of late my daughter, who will be 17 in a couple of months, has been inquiring who she really looks like and from whom she got certain features. Well even though she looks a lot like her father, hair colour, eye colour, lips, she has some of my features and people always say she looks just like me, which I can't really see. So the other day she wanted to know where I got my nose from, well my nose looks a lot like my paternal grandmother's nose and in general I looked more like my dad than my mother. Well I told my daughter that her nose looks more like mine, which she flat out disputed and said she hoped not, because my nose would be too big for her little face, all I could reply jokingly was that she should be so lucky and have inherited my nose because she should would look odd with her paternal grandather's nose and she agreed but still doesn't want her nose to look like mine lol....Personally I think I have a good nose, but who am I to judge that lol...During the morning yesterday I was cleaning out the cabinets in the living room and came across a picture of me when I was 6 years old and a picture of her when she was about 5, sorry kiddo, but spitting image lol at least what the nose concerns...so I called her down and showed her the pictures, of course she still didn't want to accept it and stomped of and mumbled something about that her face wouldn't look good if her nose ever got as big as mine..( really I don't have a big nose)....but then she must have had one of her bright moments and she came down, and I am posting this only because I am amongst all women on here, but she said, that her nose will never grow as big as mine, after all I got big boobs and she only has little ones, so the same will go for her nose. I had to laugh so hard at her logic but she might have a point there. lol time will tell. I guess with that logic she showed one of her finer moments, being a blonde, we have had some fun with each other about some blonde moments we have displayed over the time, and let me tell you, she had some really good ones lol.... I am glad she can laugh with me over those ones and we always tease each other who is the bigger blonde lol. Oh the logic of a teenage girl, gotta love it.

Wow! She sure does look like her Mom. I love comparison pictures like this. You can really see how family traits carry on through the generations. I don't suppose you have a picture of your Mom at that age, do you?

yep, she looks just like you, no question.
My daughter and I look alike too, although when she was born she was a spitting image of my granny...

Louise- unfortunately I don't have a picture of my mom at that age, well at least not here in Canada. I always kind of makes me sad that I don't have more pictures from back then over here with me, whether it's family pictures or travel memories.
Polly- I won't tell her that everybody said she looks like me lol.
Tracey- told ya I was a cute kid lol
Cat- Thanks, I don't think my nose is that big lol, but she thinks for her face it would be lol. Go figure that one out.
Sharon- I thought so too, she can be such a blonde at times lol
Inger- Thanks Inger. One day I might post something about her other "off beat" blonde moments.
