The Twins Have Inherited Only My Worse Qualities April 25, 2011Posted by lisawifemom in It's All About the Twins.

Of course, their pediatrician tells me that’s not true, that I only see those qualities, but trust me, I’ve been looking, and I think that’s it. My daughter especially has been put on this earth to push every button I’ve accumulated. And, I’m not stupid, I know that most of the button pushing comes directly from her traits that are most like mine. I know the saying that the things we dislike most in people are the things that are most like ourselves. But uurrrr, she’s only 5 and I already want to kick her butt most days. Which really means I want to kick my own butt, and it’s just a very strange circle.
It makes me skin crawl when I see or hear her do things and I’m really seeing or hearing myself, and I don’t like it at all. On top of it, she’s a big clutz, just like mom!
And her twin brother, I think he was put here to drive his dad to drink! Dad is constantly trying to get his attention, says his name over and over and then asks, “what’s his problem? why is he ignoring me?” My answer? Welcome to my world baby!!
However, I do see some really awesome qualities in both of them that they get from dad, and that makes me so glad. It also tells me that their doctor is probably right, and I’m sure they have some good qualities from me, whether I see them or not.
Are there things you love to see in your child(ren) because it reminds you of the good things in you?
