Are kids wired to like pickles? (And other deep thoughts on habits kids pick up from parents)
I'm glad I shared Max's birth story this week. It was draining, but it was comforting to know that many of you relate to what I've been through, and that I've helped to raise awareness about pediatric stroke.
We now return to our regularly scheduled programming.
Sabrina is in this interesting phase where she wants pickles for her bedtime snack. She's always loved them. I have, too, since I was a kid. We often have to split the one that comes with my dinner at a restaurant, with her making sure that my half is not larger than hers.
Max, meanwhile, seems to have acquired one of Dave's quirky habits. The other week, before Max drifted off to sleep, I noticed him running one hand up and down a forearm, the exact thing Dave absentmindedly does sometimes when he's just lying around, relaxing.
Have your kids picked up any particular habits or mannerisms from you?
BTW, I just got a printable Borders coupon good for 40 percent off one item at the store this weekend, it's here if you'd like it.
