Daddy At The Beach.

Unfair genetics.

See the unfair genetics that I talk about? Jopa was a constant 75kg. He was able to wear clothes that he had worn in his 30s even at 50+. But he was big boned. So, he had big hands and feet.My mum, on the other hand, was around a size 8 or 10 when she got married. Then she got bigger and bigger. But she was small boned. So, she had small dainty hands and feet.So, me, what did I do? Combine my dad’s big bones and my mum’s fatness. So, I am fat and have big hands and no size in London feet. And my dad had scanty hair and my mum had full thick long hair. Guess what combo I took? Scanty hair? Yup. But thank God that I took my mum’s lovely complexion and my dad’s nose and lips. Thank God for that.

  1. No be only you waka come o. My dad is tall and all my siblings tower above him but I chose to be short. Not only short but small. And I didn’t see hair texture to have but my mum’s. In fact, I maintain natural hair cos my hair is horribly light when relaxer is applied on it. Very scanty🙈. And like you, I combine my mum’s complexion with my dad’s eyes, nose and mouth😂. Beautiful me😀

  2. I can so much relate to this “yucky” genetics. My blood pressure is starting to get high and require medications and I never even reach 33. My mum was diagnosed at around 33/34, my maternal grandmother at around 40. Me? Trying to surpass them both. God dey. Kemi

  3. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
    Love the fact that you took a bit from Jopa and mum except the no size in London feet and scanty hair
    Lol

  4. Aunty Bunmi, you just share everything equally. Wish mine was so. I took my mum’s complexion, short height, slight bow legs and small hands. The funny thing is that I jumped both of them to go and carry my maternal grandmother’s busty boobs..

  5. Aunt Bunmi, you’re still a beautiful woman and you know it. My genetic issues are similar to yours, only both my parents are slim, but I went and got big just like my maternal grandma. Lol.
