I’d always had suspicions that my children were the result of egg donations my husband had secretly implanted in my uterus (it’s better not to think about how this would be logistically possible).  They both have blue eyes and my daughter has red hair.  My husband’s features are all around dark and I’m a strong brown-eyed dark blonde.  Because I cognitively understand the concept of recessive genes, I was willing to ignore my misgivings.  Then recently I acknowledged two things that most definitively make it impossible that my children are genetically derived from me:

1. My son does not like macaroni and cheese.


My husband has a lot of explaining to do…

    Yeah, come to think of it, that would explain a lot of things about my kids, too! I often find myself saying, “How did this kid come from me?” Now, I have a possible explanation!


    Yes, while our husbands' deception is troubling, at least now we know the truth!


    He must have worked really hard to get you to pass out and then take you to a medical facility to get you implanted! Haha.


    Yes! See, this is totally what I'm thinking…


    lol! hmmm maybe YOU have some explaining to do. 😉



    Oh, yeah…DEFINITELY gots some explaining to do.


    Yeah… what the hell?


    Ha! My four all tend to resemble family members on my husband's side!



    I say this all the time. I am a dark haired, dark eyed Italian and I have one reddish/blond/brown, blue-eyed kid, two blonds with green eyes and a blondie with blue eyes. They all hate sleeping. No idea how they are mine.


    LOL! I can't say the same about my two – they're like my little twins…


    Honestly, I'm glad to hear that I do have some cohorts in my plight :) …and I'm also feeling blessed that he at least used the same woman's eggs (my kids look identical)–can you imagine how weird that would be?


    I know at least one of my kids is mine…out of four. I got one mini me…she's an exact replica!


    More than Mommies–that is a comfort in knowing that you can definitely claim one 😉 I'll bet she's adorable!
