The Apple Does Not Fall Far From The Tree
Friday, April 20, 2007
This morning, while getting my son dressed for school, he made a request.
Son: Mummy, I want some hair gel today.
Me: Okay, sure. After we put on your sweater, I'll fix your hair for you.
Son: I want to put hair gel for Juffrouw* June today.
So I apply a bit of gel and my son inspects my handiwork.
Son: Mummy, it's not spikey enough. I want it sharp.
Me: *running more gel through his hair* How's this? Better?
Son: *turning his head this left to right and back again* Much better!
Most families have the smart gene, the artistic gene, the athletic gene running through them. I go and give my son the vainpot one.
* Juffrouw = Dutch for Ms
