Every once in awhile I get a reminder of just how strong an impact the actions of a parent have on their child.
Last week Malia and I did some painting at the kitchen table. Interesting how she ended up trying to make her pictures as close to mine as possible -- my artistic skills aren't very fine-tuned, so mine are the top pictures in case you couldn't tell. :)
It's not that I was surprised at the fact that she wanted to copy me. It's just a really good gentle reminder that the eyes of the child are always on the parents. And especially with me having girls, I will be their #1 role model.
And that is a job that I need to take very seriously.
