My ex and I both have brown eyes (mine as a little greenish at times) and one of my sons has brown eyes and the other bright blue.  Blue is recessive.  My father had hazel eyes and his mother had blue eyes.  My ex's father had blue eyes.  I remember how surprised I was when my younger one was born with this white blond hair and very blue eyes that stayed that way!

I think eye color is mixed-dominance (i.e. multiple genes involved).  If there were only blue eyes and brown eyes, maybe not, but there are also green and gray, there are a few people with two different colored eyes, and some people have two colors in the same eye.

Yes, my husband and I don't have brown eyes, but they aren't pure blue or pure green either.  There are probably other genes and nutritional factors that can switch different colorations back on or back off as well...as with curly hair... it's considered dominant, but if somebody also has a gene to have no middle layer in their hair, then the curliness can't express, then straight ends up dominant.

My sister and her husband are darker, but their kids are blond as can be with blue eyes.  My husband and I were very blond as kids, but our kids aren't.  My eyes are mostly blue, but they look green because they have yellow/gold in the middle...yellow and blue appears green but there's not a bit of green to them.  I'm the closest one out of six kids to have my mom's blue eyes.

My brothers and I all had blond hair as children but it turned brown as we grew up.  Both my parents have brown eyes: dad's are dark, almost black, but mom's are light brown.  Mine are like mom's, but my youngest brother's are dark like dad's.

Yeah, on the blood type question...I'm the only one of 4 kids that has O blood (I'm sure because I used to donate plasma). Both my parents are A's, but I'm assuming they were both Ao. I have an uncle on my dad's side that's O (no, there was no hanky-panky) so I know my dad has O in his family. So I would assume they both gave me their O recessive.

Most As are Ao and most Bs are Bo, so it's pretty common.  There's just no getting away from us Os

both of you have an O recessive gene then!
