completely taller and partly older

February 22, 2010

We thought that I was 100% older that Peter, until few weeks ago. Now we know that 50% of him is older than me.

“Yes!!!” he exclaimed when I broke the news to him one night as he was drifting off to sleep.

How in the world is that possible? You see, a woman’s egg cells are formed while she is a baby in her mother’s womb. This means that half of my DNA was ready in my mom while she was in my grandmother’s womb back in 1957. And half of Peter’s genes were ready to go when his mom was in his grandmother’s womb back in 1956!

Let me know if this news flash affects any of your relationships!

    I think that’s a bit of a stretch…plus, I enjoy telling Caleb I robbed the cradle 😉

    YES!! That means that 50% of me is older than Sean! I can’t wait to use this fact to my advantage! Now he can’t call me “young Claire” anymore. But that might mean I won’t be able to call him “Grandpa” anymore…

    50% of me is also older than both you and Peter!
