So, it really DOES make a GIANT difference who you marry (or who's the other parent of your kids)! You know how the saying goes, "like father, like son." Harrison's now 13 months, and sure enough his favorite activity has become talking on the cell phone just like Daddy! For those of you who don't understand where that fascination comes from, Aaron works for Verizon Wireless, and due to the nature of his job, he has 12 phone lines and during working hours almost ALWAYS has a phone (or earpiece) stuck to his head! In fact, he's so used to it being there, that when his work day's done I often have to remind him to take out the earpiece, but his Blackberry is always on his hip!
I'm SO GRATEFUL that I didn't marry a guy who's angry, or an abuser, or curses, or says derogatory comments about other people. I'm grateful I didn't marry a guy who avoids his family, or is "self-centered," or.....
Emulating Daddy to these boys means (1) working hard, but then when work's done, playing and having lots of fun laughing, (2) wearing button-down shirts and tucking them in - I know it's odd, but when we periodically dress up Alex for church he always says "I look just like Daddy!" and (3) using a cell phone!
Harrison - taken yesterday.
I love his creativity to find a stylus to use - even though the Storm doesn't use one, some PDAs do!Alex at 11 months - before we let him touch any of our "real" cell phones.After we finally realized that he wasn't going to stop finding and "using" our "real" cell phones!
