a Kennedy thing
Ben and I are always making comparisons about our kids. Who they look like, who they act like and where they get some of their personality traits/quirks. You know how it goes, if your child does something good you say guess what our child did, if they do something wrong it's, guess what your child did! Know what I mean. Well some things are just pretty obvious. Like this one. Harmony constantly has a book in her hand. When I tell her it's bedtime, she always says, "let me get a book first". At every meal time she has to have a book or a magazine with her. Something to read. And I can say without a doubt, that she gets that from me. My Mom could always be found sitting at the table, pouring over a book. Any request at that moment was met with, " just one more page" or " just let me finish this chapter". And now I do it. I mean how boring to just have to sit and eat right? Well it is now a generational thing. I am also pretty darn sure my sisters do it. What can I say...it's a Kennedy thing!
