  1. I’ll have to try this for my kids. Most people say my kids look NOTHING like me. The hubs and I both have neraly black hair. Mine is curly. My eyes are dark brown, and the hubs’ eyes are hazel. Both the kids have straight blonde hair with blue eyes. If it weren’t for the fact that so many people (even strangers) have commented when the kids were little babies that they look so much like my husband, we would all wonder who else I’d been with (except for me, of course, because I know better!)
