I couldn't let this one pass me by =)
I'm 5'2 with a small frame (wish i could say it's a large frame, but it's just fat!). I have dark hair and green eyes. I'm Cherokee and Irish.
My dh is 5'10 and around 170. He's Polish. He has very light brown hair (blonde as a child) and blue eyes.
Ds has blonde hair and blue eyes. His eyelashes are a normal length [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

this is really weird.
My DS is white blonde hair, blue eyes and the firs thing that everyone comments about are his long long eyelashes. I am also petite ..5'1" and 103 lbs. Crazy isn't it how much we all have in common.

Wow, the similarities are amazing! My PA son takes after dh who is -what else?- Irish: fair skin, blue eyes, and yes, lovely long eyelashes. I'm definitely a petite mom at barely 5 feet tall. Would love to see a study on this someday!

I'm mostly Irish with some Russian and German thrown in and I'm 5'2", My dh is 100% Irish.
My ds with allergies is incredibly fair skinned, with light RED hair, huge blue eyes, and yes the eyelashes again. WEIRD.
His twin brother has dark hair, hazel eyes, not quite as light a compexion, but still the long eyelashes. He has no allergies.
Let the mystery connection continue.

This is a very interesting topic. My son has a PA. I am Caucasian and my husband it Oriental. Our allergist told us that the chances of our children having allergies is based on if we have allergies and/or asthma. We both have allergies and I have asthma.
However I am petite, fair skinned. My son has dark hair, dark eyes dark skin but has a PA.
Somewhat off topic but related. When my daughter was born, she was a sent for a cystic fibrosis test. My pediatrician (sp?) told me that the chances of her having CF was slim because of our mixed races. Which surprised me!
I don't remember when I was younger ever hearing of anyone having a peanut allergy. So I belive it must have something to do with the environment or what we are eating (Processed Foods, pesticides etc)as well has the family's history.
