I don't know the mother/daughter beauty phenomenon. My Mother never mentioned my looks, but then again, I never asked or wondered.
I do have a son and honestly think he is one of the best looking kids I have ever seen. Big chocolate brown eyes, button nose, cute little mouth; he's absolutley stunning. There is a part of me that thinks I think that just because he's my son and I couldn't ever see him as anything other than perfect, but then there is a side of me that believes I am not biased, but that I just know a really good looking kid when I see one and he is one. Seriously.
