In what ways are your children like you? Different than you? Oh there’s so many! My middle daughter is extremely like me in the way she loves NYC, the ballet, and she just does things that leaves me feeling as though I’m looking in a mirror. Different- my youngest is super funny and outgoing, and that was definitely not like me when I was growing up. Now -it may be a different story.
Have you caught yourself repeating something your parents have said to you? Yes of course! Especially when I’m yelling!
