1. I take after my mum in some things, sometimes in her serious expressions, also joy and the desire of study. 2. not exactly a brother or sister but a looked after for a younger cousin when he was a baby, was an incredible experience, people thought that he was my son. haha! 3. Of course, with all my family I get on well, they´re special with me, and me too.

I take after my parents, in diferents things but a lot, my father is really good with the finances and i am too, and my mother is really responsable and i am too. I look after my younger sister, she is 6 years old and i love her, she always is playing, and always she makes me happy. All my family is very close and almost always we go out, and help ourselves.

I think that we take after our parents in most aspects like the humor or likes, my brothers are older than me, so i never had to look after them, they had to look after me and i take after my brothers too in some things, like my favourite kinf of music, and i get on well with all members of family

I'm a unique child so I don´t have to look after little brothers or sisters. I take after my parents a lot, I am very serious when it´s time to be like mom and I make a lot of jokes like dad. I have a great resemblance in the body my dad. Even though my parents are divorced they have always got on well with me.

I think I look like my dad a bit physically and humorously, I have 2 brothers, one of them is 8 years old, the other is 1 month old, I take care of a little of the older one sometimes. I get along very well with my family, with my uncles, aunts, cousins and brothers.

I take after my mom, everybody, always says, that i have my mother´s face, i only have one brother and he is older than me, so i never had to look after nobody, and my brother neither, because my mom always is who look after us. offcourse i get on well with my mom and my brother, but like all the families, we sometimes we argue withe each other. But most of time we are a loving family.

My family almost tell me that I look after my dad beacuse of my way of being, the way to communicate with others and my expressions. Even though my parents are divorced and have other children. My dad have a one little girl, she has 8 months old and my mom have other girl who have 8 years old. About my family I really love stay with they because they support me all time specially in football. We are a very united family and we share a good moments.

I think that I actually take after my dad a Little bit, but not too much, and I definitely don take after my mom. I don't have Little brothers or sisters so I don't have to look after nobody. And definetiny I get on well with my family, specially with my brother because he understand me in all the things, but I get on well with every member of my family.

My family are my two sisters and my mom and dad. I take after my dad a lot. I use some expressions like his and we have similar personalities. I have two sisters (one of them is older than me and the other one younger than me) and sometimes I need to look after her because I'm two years older. I love my family and we fight like every other family do but at the end of the day we support each other and we are very close.

Yes, I physically take after to my dad, but in the personality I take after to my mother. Yes, my little sister, who is one year old, because my mother spends all day with her and when I come to study, I take care of her while my dad comes to work. Yes, although with my mom we have different conflicts about different points of view.
