Designer Babies

So now if you have the money, you can not only screen out genetic illness from your unborn offspring, you can also choose physical features like eye color! Terrific! Honestly, I have four children who all have blonde hair and blue eyes, 2 boys and 2 girls. And, as I'm sure you already know, genetics is a big crap shoot; you just never know what you're going to get! I have a tomboy, a future rocket-scientist, a little mommy, and what I suspect to be a typical rough-and-tumble boy (time will tell). All four of them look distinctly different and have completely different personalities. Now, given that both hubby and I are blue eyed and were blonde (and I'd have been in trouble had my kids looked any other way!), I still don't know why anyone would choose to take the mystery and wonder of 'what will they look like' out of the equation when having children. It's so much more fun to spin the roulette wheel and see what comes up for you and yours.

  1. Hi Jen,
    Isn't that the truth.. I have a set of twins and even though they are not identical, they could not be anymore day and night opposites and every way from food they like to their weight (Aiden 26 lbs, Aubrey just hit 18 and we have to take her back in for a weight check) to the fact that one talks constantly and the other never.
    Love the blog
