My Shadow

As my son enters into his tween years, I’ve noticed more and more that the things I like to do, he also likes. Which is pretty cool in some ways, and really scary in others. I want to say my wife makes me be a better man, but that is nothing in comparison to what my son makes me want to be. If he’s my shadow, then his base line in standards starts with me. Yeah, that’s a lot of pressure, but pretty cool. When I spend time writing or playing my guitar, or gaming, so does he. He’s very creative and some of the stories he’s pecked out on the keyboard are pretty good for his age. The only problem I have is that I’m a recovering couch potato and that’s a trait I don’t want him to start.

I just want to make sure that my shadow doesn’t reflect my faults.
