The apple doesn't fall far from the tree

I have noticed eerie similarities between myself and my offspring. Poor, poor children.

Emily has inherited my empathy and passion. This is a nice way of saying she freaks out over things and cries when she thinks people are mad at her.

She has also inherited my love of books and artsy things. Today, she won an award at school for her book report entitled "The Lorax". OK, so everyone got an award, but I am still beaming with pride. I am truly amazed at how much she has learned this year. Ethan is also a whole lot like his mama. I would like to draw your attention to the fact that Ethan is destined to be a rock star. I believe he inherited this quality from me, as I would have been a rock star had I not been stifled by my inability to sing. Just look at him...definitely rock star material. Seriously, how can someone look so cool while standing next to a primary colored bike with a handle on the back?He is also likes to do art projects, and is especially good at gluing things. I am not so great with glue, but I excel at finding things for him to glue. As you can imagine, we are pretty good team. Just look at how nicely he pasted the leaves on the tree. He didn't even lick them this time.

You should be proud, WTG momma for influencing them in such a great and fun way...
Since I am extremely lacking in the artsy department, can I just bring my kiddos by for a few art projects, lol...

Oh that's cute! Are those real leaves on his little tree?? Adorable. And I love the part where you say you would have been a rock star had you not lacked the ability to sing well. Ha! Ohhhh, I gotta kick out of that one. This was really cute!!

Rossie, you can bring your kids over to my place for art projects ONLY if you let us go on your awesome vacations with you. :)

Kathy, yes they are real leaves. Told you I am good at finding things to glue :).
