Do you ever stop and think about how much you turned out like your parents?
I would love to know how many people see their mom/dad in themselves. And those that are nothing like their parents.
This came up because my parents and I are going to a flea/vintage market this weekend. My dad asked, “do you know what you are looking for? You have a list don’t you?”
My response-“I’m your child so I must have a list right?”
I do have a list. I make lists of everything. Just like my dad. I have OCD. Like my dad. I’m good with finances and directions. Like my dad. I always think I’m right. Like my dad. I’m a homebody that doesn’t really drink. Like my dad.
I’m 29-about to be 30 and I’ve turned out like my father. Something I never expected but happy to be.
