Driving home after a family visit G asked me why she wouldn't be as tall as her grandaddy, who is 6ft. I told her she didn't take after her grandad and then she said something I wasn't expecting. She said, "Why do I not wook wike my family?"
So I said, "Well, you do look like your family in China, your first family. You are adopted into our family. I adopted you and you adopted us." (yeah I know she hadn't a choice in her adopting.)
But before I could keep on she totally changed the subject which was noticing that we were going a different way home, heh. I wish I could explain genetics to her, but for a 4 year old I just don't know. I tell her she doesn't have her grandaddy's genes and I know by her response I know she is thinking "jeans."
