Am I the only one fascinated by this topic?Â I’ve always thought so, and if that is the case, it’s probably because I’m adopted.Â I can tell you, in my adoptive family, exactly what’s nature and what’s nurture.Â My brother is (probably) ADHD and it does run in teh family.Â His son is just like him.Â The older my father gets, the more like his father he is (in looks and personality).Â I see a lot of my grandmother in my aunt, and the women in my father’s family are prone to wavy hair and premature grey (and I’m talking three generations).Â Most of that is nature.Â Which means none of it applies to me.Â So what does?
I can tell you #1 son is a lot like me, he’s got my temperment (stubbor little shit) where #2 is more like his dad with the ADD.Â That’s ADD not ADHD.Â Though I think he gets his dreamer qualities from me 🙂
Over at Vanessa’s blog she’s wondering about the purpose of Myspace. Â And what the hell does that have to do with nature vs nurture?
Anyone who knows me knows I am a horrible homebody who spends a lot of time reading romance novels and collecting recipes…I am actually writing my what I hope to be my first bodice ripper and its going to be sci-fi with of lots of ummm well you know..
That my friends, is nature.Â Also known as my (biological) half-sister who’s living on the east coast working on her masters (and a romance novel).Â 🙂
I guess, to some people, this doesn’t seem like much but when you have very little, it’s a lot.Â I remember, from my adoption paperwork, my biological mother was a writer too.Â She supposedly sold some short stories but I never managed to track them down.Â I guess the apples don’t fall far from the tree.
