I don’t know if it’s all genetics or it’s from observing how adults act around us that we become who we are and develop quirks that actually run in the family. Growing up I noticed, I’d do things like how my parents would or my grandparents too. Now that I’m older I even notice that among my cousins, we have this big smile that’s pretty consistent in the family. So when my little goddaughter, Rachael is cheeky, I know it’s something that may run deep in her genes and I should know.
Who taught whom? I wonder 🙂 In my attempt to collect pictures of us, she’ll sometime sabotage the picture taking. As above the example reflects. Her sense of humour cracks me up. I’m waiting for the time when she’s a tween and it’ll border belligerence … again something I can completely relate too.
All I can say is my heart goes out to my cousin and his wife … they should really ask my parents how they dealt with me and my smart ass 😉
