What did your parents give you? (Genetics)

I was looking at my body and thinking about where the different parts of me came from. The gaps in my teeth come from my my grandmother's family on my mother's side. The fact that my hair is turning white at age seventeen (my hair is naturally somewhere between dark brown and black) comes from my grandfather's family on my mother's side. My large feet (I am a girl and I wear size 13 in Men's shoes, USA sizes) comes from my Dad and his side of the family. I have two different colored eyes, and as far as we know the only one in the family with the same trait is a distant Aunt on my Mother's side. So, what did your parents give you?

wew`., my feet size and my height would come from my fathers side. my trait would also be in my fathers side. my handcraft would be on my moms side. my being a photographic person would be on my mothers mother side. my knowledge in english would still be on my moms side. my eyes, from my dads. my nose, probably from my mom. my being loving slaty foods and just eating out, would be from my moms. :D i got nothing elese to find what's in me from them.

Photographic, as in good with photography, or pretty-in-pictures? Salty foods are indeed delicious, I definitely agree there. I cannot really compare what I like to eat with anyone in my family, I am so picky! Thank you for sharing.

Psychic abilities? That is very interesting. And, you have big feet like I do!

This is an easy one for me. My whole family has back issues, poor eye sight, and a great deal of unwanted bad luck. Appearance wise, I got my chin and dimples from my mom. And my hippy-ish way of thinking. My eyes and my smile I get from my pops. I was just wondering recently about my appearance and traits. My mom is somewhat happy that my looks remind her of my dad.

Bad luck? Hopefully you can be the one to turn that around. That is sweet that your mom thinks that. Thank you for responding!

Poor sleep patterns, an appetite for unhealthy things, hair color, eye color and the ability to become easily addicted to auctions. (In my case, that would be e-bay, since my Dad never was a computer person and liked live auctions.) Oh yeah, I have huge feet too.

Oh no, poor sleep patterns suck! I have a friend who has that same problem. He is constantly trying to readjust it, but he has not found a successful method yet. I hope that you do well on eBay!
