I think there are a lot of traits that we hope we pass on to our kids. But are there any traits that you'll be very pleased if they don't inherit from you?
Hadley's bio parents are both tall and trim and I'm SO thankful because my entire family struggles with weight.
I have no assss. I used to weigh 300 pounds and I still didn't have one... flat like I am leaned up against the wall... so does my mom & my late grandma. I'm very thankful she won't get that from us.

Aw, another sporter of the "extended back syndrome". I totally understand.

This, along with a crippling intensity/perfectionism.
My picky eating habits.

I'm really hoping DS is not super reactionary like I am. I have worked hard to control my emotions but it is still a daily struggle for me and those that have to deal with me.
OCD tendancies, insulin issues, depression, and allergies.
We hope that he doesn't get my DHs reading/writing issues

My extreme shyness. I also have some social anxiety as well. Unfortunately, I think DD did inherit my shyness. She is almost exactly like I was at her age. It took her almost the entire school year before she really talked much at school. DS seems to be much more outgoing.
I also hope they don't inherit my dental problems. I take such good care of my teeth and still have all sorts of tooth issues. DH has never had a cavity, so lets hope they get his teeth.
Physically, my eye problems. I've already had a corneal transplant in one eye and may need the other done down the road.
Emotionally, my anxiety.

I hope he's not short and fat like me. And I hope he doesn't have my anxiety and depression issues.
I was hoping he'd skip my temper but that ship appears to have already sailed....
