Most parents I know regret the fact that their children have taken after their spouse. They secretly wish that their children were more like themselves. For me it is completely the opposite.
I am really glad that both my children have taken after their father. It works out extremely well for me, as their father himself is on the move quite often. In such a scenario, just looking at both of them, I see glimpses of him in the food we eat, in the way we go for walks, in the way we roll over with laughter. He is always midst of us even when he is miles away.
I actually feel bad for him, cause when I am no more in this world, he would really have no one like me, with him. When such a time comes, I am pretty sure he is going to miss me really bad. Knowing the rare piece that I am, he would have such a difficult time finding someone like me out in the world too.
I am blessed to have children who are like their father. I experienced him as an adult, and I now get to experience him like a child too. 🙂
