I have a little shadow. He is 15 months old, weighs 25 pounds, and is as tall as my waistline. Whenever I see him, I see a reflection of me. Everyday my son likes to imitate me and copy almost everything I do.
It's really cute when he tries to be like daddy. He likes to sit on the couch with me and watch TV. After he first watched me turn on the dishwasher, he likes to try to turn on after dinner. He likes to follow me around the house no matter what I'm doing. I know that he is young, curious, and trying to learn from me as much as he can.
Along with my wife, I feel honored to be one of his two main role models. I don't take this responsibility lightly. I know that every day I need to put self forward. I need to think, speak, and act in the way I want him to do so. I know that whether I know it or not, my son is learning to be who he will be from me.
