Toddlers are made from the same mould

Male or female?

Am I the only one in the world who feels that all toddlers look the same?

"Does the toddler look more like the dad or the mum?"
Err.... seriously I could never figure that out. And if I think hard enough to try and establish any comparisons, I might end up asking if they are sure they didn't took the wrong baby home.

Or "Can you figure if the baby is a boy or girl?"
Well, I can't see that from the face. But I know how to reliably check that out, not that I'm going to do it.

On a side note, some years back, I was trying to pick up small talk with a colleague from another department. I looked around his desk, and saw a photo of his 2 kids, and asked him if his kids are sons or daughters. He looked at me, paused, and told me both were daughters, as if it was obvious.

Then, I looked at the photo again. Oh ya, they were wearing skirts, I must have missed that out.

When embarrassed, just smile your way through. *blush*

LOL! I also can't tell whether a baby looks like the mother or father.. when people talk about this, I would just nod along. Most importantly, the parents are happy. That's all that matters :)

That's pretty funny. Yeah, but babies are hard to differentiate. I cant tell the difference.
But nowadays, it just aint babies that are difficult to differentiate, some also can't see the difference between a female and male. Take for example, poor me. i keep getting called BOY and SIR. ARGH !

Yeah..for some tods, hard to figure if it's he or she. Tods are the same as in they're mostly cute and cuddly. But I have come across a minority few who aren't cute and cuddly..to be honest. One tod I know...hardly smiles. Just stares at me and his mouth has the shape of a downturned cresent. So he doesn't look smiley at all.

Haha, those could have been kilts. There was no way for you to know!

I think I usually do see resemblances between parents and kids, but not always. I tell my wife it's more important for kids to look like their dads--there's never any question who the mother is!!! =)

I can tell who they look like sometimes, but when I can't, I'd be honest about it! Some people I know just make comments for the sake of it.

For some toddlers, they look neither like their fathers nor their mothers. Haha
