My son. Myself.

As Holden grows older, some folks like to say he looks more and more like his daddy. I can see it: the brown hair, the boyishness, the brown eyes. But I totally disagree. Look at this picture of him next to little me.

Also, he won’t want to hear this, but personality-wise, he’s a mini me right now. He likes nothing better than being the boss of the day and controlling everything. If I planned a day of only Holden’s favorites, he would be frustrated that he didn’t plan the day of fun. I totally get that. A surprise party — even with only my favorite activities and people — would totally stress me out.

Is your kid a mini version of you (even if he would HATE to hear it)?
