I saw the idea of a personality doppelganger on another blog and I thought it was a cute idea (please forgive me for not knowing the exact name of the blog because I found it by accident and when I tried to get the link, I couldn’t find it again for the life of me!). The basic concept is to think of a celebrity (or well-known character) whose personality reminds you of your kid(s). I like the idea of comparing personalities vs. looks because I believe that personality is so much more telling of who a person is!
So, here’s what I came up with for how my precious little ones have developed so far. 🙂
First up: Big Brother. I have been told several times that because he has a very sophisticated vocabulary for his age and loves learning, he reminds people of Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory. Now, he’s no Einstein, but I totally get the comparison, especially since he loves to point out when I am being sarcastic (though I’d like to think my boy’s social skills are on a much higher level than Sheldon’s).
Next, The Princess. Now, you might think that I would compare her to a princess since that’s how I refer to her, but my sweet girl reminds me WAY too much of my little sister (which is scary) who was actually named after the Chipette “Brittany” from the original Alvin and the Chipmunks. She’s definitely sassy and not one to back down easily.
And, finally, we have Big Trouble. My original thought was to post a picture of the Tasmanian Devil from Looney Toons because he is just a mess; but lately, he has been acting more like the Dog from Up. I find myself saying “focus” a lot these days because he will be talking about something and then stop suddenly and notice something else exciting…and then something else…and something else, etc. Every time he does this, I immediately want to shout out “SQUIRREL”.So, here you have my approximation of my children’s personality doppelgangers.
Does anyone else ever have these kinds of comparisons with their kids? 🙂
