May 10. Day 130. Follow the leader
If you ever want proof that children learn through imitation just renovate. Those were the words of my neighbour Mike who with son Mitch was out sanding the fence this afternoon. I'll have to take his word for it because renovating is something I will NEVER take on and not at all coincidentally it was not something my parents did either.
But I know Mike's right. How often do we hear our own words come back at us through the mouths of our children - the good the bad and the ugly.
With all the talk about sports stars and pop stars being role models for kids it is really important to remember one thing. There is no bigger role model than you. It's hard to live up to some times but it is important to never give up trying.
