Yesterday I was walking with my daughter down the stairs and she looked up at me with this big grin, and I was immediately brought back to just about a year ago. But instead of my daughter I was looking at Meredith’s daughter. Although our children are almost a year apart, and have no shared relations, when you compare photos of them at the same age it’s almost impossible to tell them apart.
They look so similar it’s creepy. Even our friends that have seen the photos think it’s weird. Yes Meredith and I worked together, we share similar personalities and interests, but how did our kids end up looking like sisters? It still blows my mind to think about.
Then you have other similarities too. We both have doctor spouses. Both women have a Lutheran upbringing. Meredith and I are both introverted intuitives, and our spouses are extroverted sensors. We both ended up in the same department in the same company. We both moved away for our spouses for school. Both husbands grew up in small towns and the wives are city girls. The list goes on. I wrote it down once but I can’t find it. It’s just all so strange.
