My Mini Me

Ok, so I am no picture scanning genius. But, take a look, closely, at the pictures. I am sure you can figure out who is who. Never in my life had I thought that Parker looked like me. It was pretty weird to see this picture because it looks so much like him. I look like him, he looks like me, we look like we.....

So, I got to thinking..... (I do that only on rare occasions), this child is so much like me. Not only in the bog toothy grin, but in many ways that drive me crazy on certain days.

1. He likes to talk. According to his teacher, a little too much, at times. I know it is hard to believe but, I too, have been plagued with this trait throughout my life.

2. He is curious. He asks questions. LOTS of them. Especially if you are in the middle of a good show or if your favorite song comes on the radio.....

3. He is athletic. Ok, this one is not like me. NOT AT ALL. I cannot, for the life of me, figure out where that comes from. The closest thing I have done that resembles being "athletic" is the kickboxing class that Anne, Angie, and I took a few years ago. Even then I thought I was going to die and mysteriously had to take potty breaks every 5 (just to catch my freakin breath). The 60 year old lady next to me kept up better than I did.

Anyways, I digress.

4. Parker loves music. He loves all types. He and I share a thing for the Jonas Brothers and Hannah Montana. Yeah, that's right. Got a problem with it?

5. The kid can dance. He definetly is in tune with his white boy rhythm. Now, do I think he is going to bust out with a tap dance to New Kids On The Block like a certain someone did back in the day? Maybe not, but he can break it down when he wants.

6. He tends to be a bit dramatic. I might have been like that when I was little... (ok, mike informed me that I still am.... I disagree)

7. He has a crazy sense of style... Who says you can't wear a long sleeved red shirt under a teal short sleeved shirt? Yep, I have some pics of me in the 80's that would show what a killer color combo that is. My kid does the same.

8. He is crafty. Need I say more?

9. He is organizationally challenged. Take a peek into his room and then into my scrap room- you probably couldn't tell them apart.

10. He likes to cuddle.

#10 may be my favorite. Actually they all are. He is. Parker is my mini me, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I'm lucky that way.

I have been a complete slacker. I have no pictures, not much to say. I promise to update with pictures either tomorrow or this weekend. Gosh, I can't believe it is Thursday!

Happy Birthday Baby!

From this:

To this:

Where in the world has 6 years gone? We are staying in today since the weather is so nasty. We might even get lucky enough to get some snow. Parker has 2 Star Wars Wii games, the Star Wars: The Clone Wars movie, and the entire first season of Ben 10. I think we are prepared.

Have a great day.
