I’ve heard parents discuss the traits their little ones have picked up from each other – usually in a teasing way, but sometimes in the mad way, like ‘Look what YOUR SON did!!” or ‘she really takes after you in that regard’, etc. However, tonight I realized that my boy favors me in at least one (of many) respects – he’ll pitch a holy fit till he gets what he wants, especially in the middle of the night. Sounds like something you’d hear on a Things I’ve Learned from My Infant: (stolen from the things I’ve learned from my dog poster that Brenda has tried to get me to throw away since we shacked up)
