The similarities don't end only at his features. He is like me in many mannerisms and personality quirks. People-pleasing. Making a joke during a difficult situation. Avoiding any form of conflict or confrontation. Addicted to, and easily distracted by, the TV! An insatiable sweet tooth. Sometimes I watch him in awe, realizing just how similar we are. I wonder if this will continue as he grows and becomes a man? I'd be lying if I said there wasn't a huge part of me that wishes it does!
Our first-born. Soon to be 6! Soon to be in First Grade?! It seems as though just yesterday we were bringing him home, blissfully unaware of the many challenges and joys of parenthood that awaited us! Where has the time gone?
All is well, celebrating the first born, in Drosche Land.
