Just Like Me
I often hear how much the kids are and look just like my sweet hubby. It doesn't really bother me...I mean look at him, he's gorgeous!
I've been hearing about it since Zach was a little guy. When he was about a year old, a women at a shopping mall stopped us, patted me on the shoulder and said "Don't worry dear, the next one might look like you!" The old busybody!
But every once in a while I see a picture of the kids or watch them do something or their mannerism and I see me.
Today, it was Noah's turn. He received a "Jigsaw Jones" book for his birthday (his first real chapter book!) and I finally convinced him to start reading it last night.
Well he couldn't put it down, today.
It's finally a beautiful day here, and we were on our bikes (I was on a bike for the first time in 15 years...a story for another time!) and Noah had to stop.
I found him sitting on a rock in the shade reading. He was so excited and kept announcing when he got to the next chapter. He was enjoying the book so much, that he rather do it than ride his bike.
I was just like that as a kid and I am still like that! It was nice to see a glimpse of me in one of them.
Whatever you're doing this Sunday, I hope it's fun!
What do your kids do that remind you of yourself?
