There does seem to be some similarity. Do you think you could get a Mr. T hat on him so we can be sure? Of course if we had a pick of his father as well at a similar age, then a true comparison could be made.

His biological father died in a car accident and his mother now blames me for him not wanting to have anything to do with Ethan. Didn't you know that when someone dies they shouldn't be held responsible for anything they did wrong?

I was 19, he was 27. Yet it's MY FAULT that I decided to have our child after he told me that he didn't want to have any kids. (He said this to me the day after I found out I was pregnant.) It's MY FAULT that I told him the ball was in his court and anytime he was ready to be a father, let me know. It's MY FAULT that I never took him to court for child support or visitation because men don't have a choice in the situation and I didn't want him to be forced into financially supporting his child. A real man wouldn't need to be. It's MY FAULT that when he did decide to be a "father" he kept making excuses after excuses as to why he couldn't take Ethan on his nights. It's truly my fault that I told him when he's really ready to be a father, let me know because this excuse bullshit doesn't work with me. It's MY FAULT that I wanted Ethan to be around family so we moved to Virginia. And finally it's MY FAULT that he died never knowing how wonderful his son it.

So Bill, Ethan looks like me! =)

Uncanny resmblence.

Bill said...

UMMMMM! Now I feel like an ass. (pull foot from mouth, and cover my butt so you don't shove your foot there) I had no idea. Sorry, and I owe you one.

But now that you mention it, the resemblence is uncanny. Is that a no go on the Mr. T hat?

april said...

DON'T FEEL LIKE AN ASS!! How could you have known?? It's not your fault that he was a piece of shit. It's mine, remember? Hee hee. You owe me NOTHING!! It's all good, really.

I don't know if I'll be able to find a Mr. T hat. If I do, I'll take the picture and post it.

In fairness, Ethan has his sperm donor's skin tone. (American Indian heritage) He doesn't have freckles like I do, and he has his hair color/thinness. If I can find better pictures which show how much we look a like, I'll post them. Maybe these 2 weren't good examples.

Bill, I noticed on my stat counter where you work and you aren't doing a project to see how many people are blogging at work, are you??

Bill said...

I'm glad it is all good.

No project like that. But our comment conversation has kept me sane today. Waiting on other people to complete there sections of the puzzle is a major pain. But it does make me wonder if the America's time use survey has looked at workplace blogging...

It is actually a master slide presentation for the upcoming release of employment projections. I could tell you, but well then i'd have to...

Keg of Oatmeal Stout.

Oatmeal Stout??? There is such a thing? And if so, people actually DRINK it? By the keg??

No wonder I don't like beer, people are putting oatmeal and shit in it. Next thing you'll tell me is they have a Grits Lager or some shit......

Bill said...

Well I have learned quite a bit today. Now I get to go to the gym and suffer for an hour.

Sam Adams makes an Oatmeal Stout and as for grits...not sure which companies use them but...
From beer advocate.com... Grits consist of uncooked fragments of starchy endosperm derived from cereal grains. The starch of these adjunct products is in its native form, and is not readily attacked by the malt diastase enzymes during mashing. Consequently, these adjuncts must be processed by boiling in a cereal cooker to bring about solubilization and gelatinization of the starch granules and render them susceptible to diastatic enzyme attack. Unlike in America and Australia, grits are rarely used in British brewing, as cereal cookers are not found in most traditional British breweries.

Yes, the resemblance is close enough for twins in those two pictures, really! amazing.

My genes beat the shit out of my ex's genes too for the kids. Yay :)

In all actuality, Jared looks like Alex's child...strange, since I hadn't even met Alex when Jared was conceived. It means when we go places, folks assume that Ariana is my child from the previous marriage and Jared is "ours." Alex doesn't mind--in fact, he wants to up the stakes to Ariana being his too. He'd have been 18 when he "conceived" Ari, so it's possible! Well, it's possible but she looks way more like me than either her father or Alex...
