Used Genes

Okay, so when I come up with a groan-inducing pun like that movie poster, I reflect on the fact that I appear to share my dad’s sense of humor. In fact, there are a number of ways in which I find myself becoming more like him (although so far, the hair line is holding).

As I’ve gotten a little older, I’ve come to appreciate how wonderful my parents are, although as a teenager I had a severe case of stay-away-from-my-family-itis. But now I realize that I would be thrilled to someday have all the knowledge and experience they have.

Do you find yourself doing things exactly as your parents do? Does it bother you, or is it okay?

In my family, my mother is the daughter to look the most like her mother and in mine, it's me. I also seem to slowly be morphing into her in every other way. It's hilarious, actually, and I love discovering them when they happen. It's everything. Mannerisms, vocab, tastes, habits, etc. Good times. My mom's a gem. And so am i, so it would seem.
