My son is turning 12 today. That’s a dozen years of having a mini me around.
It’s uncanny how much he looks and acts like I did/do. Because of this, I can see how much my father got annoyed with me.
But I also love that my son looks up to me as a role model. Sometimes I need to see myself through his eyes in order to be a better father.
He is definitely a lot like I was as a child. A love of LEGO, playing outdoors, video games and movies are all things I enjoyed as well. I never knew how much I wanted a son until we had him. He is one of the greatest joys I have in my life.
Happy Birthday Theory!
