Paternity Test Needed? Do You Wonder?

Feb 29, 2016 | Paternity, Paternity Test

Here’s a segment of an article from the Huffington Post, where Matt Brennan takes a tongue-in-cheek look at everyday situations with his son and wonders: Is a paternity test needed?
As parents we often look at our children’s “bad” habits and point the finger—he got that from you! Of course there are also endearing habits that we can surely take credit for. Grandparents are a great resource for tie-breakers, as they knew us best in the early years. It’s a mystery what traits and habits get passed on when DNA meets DNA, and the unique mix is created in our sons and daughters. Some children share striking resemblances of their mom or dad, while others may fall in the “Paternity test needed” category–

Do sports gene’s get passed on?


when in comes to looks.
Here’s Matt’s take on some every day situations where he sees the similarities and differences of his son. Do you have a list?

  1. He picks the cheese off pizza and only eats half the slice. Paternity test needed.
  2. He runs to his target on the other side of the room, completely oblivious to his surroundings because he’s looking down at his feet. He either runs into the bench or trips over his own feet, it’s tough to say which caused the fall. Sadly, no paternity test needed.
  3. He uses green beans to mask the taste of the chicken. Paternity test needed.
  4. He eats six-course meals that leave his mother wondering what grocery bills will look like during his teenage years. No paternity test needed.
  5. He prefers cartoons to sports. I don’t care if he is only 2. Paternity test needed.
  6. He wants to read everything. If you delay too long when the book is open and he expects you to read to him, he’ll say “Talk to it, daddy.” No paternity test needed.
  7. At the age of 2, when one parent says “no,” he’ll go ask the other parent. I’m pretty sure I did the same thing, but I don’t know if I started that early. No paternity test needed.
  8. He’s exceeded his number of free answers to questions for the year. I’m thinking about charging a quarter per remaining question. This idea isn’t entirely original, however. A friend of the family threatened to charge me, when I was a kid. No paternity test needed.
  9. When he makes us laugh, he repeats his joke over and over and over. Sadly, no paternity test needed.
