From my mother's side of the family, there is The Look. We don't all look alike, but when we're irritated with someone, when we're DONE with this nonsense, we all have the same, distinct facial expression. This one:
Meanwhile, my grandpa's dimples completely skipped over both my mom and me, but landed on my kiddos. The Boy has a chin dimple and check these out:
The Boy's eyes are the same green-gold color as my father-in-law's and he squints like my mother-in-law when he smiles. The Lad has the husband's long toes. The Boy might have my odd, double-jointed thumbs. The Lad's nose flares when he's angry, just like mine. They both look enough like their dad to obviously be brothers.
And yet, they're totally themselves.
