As much as I love my parents and spending time with them, there are some aspects to each of their behaviors that I've never been very fond of. I caught myself in mid-stupid-question-that-I-already-know-the-answer-to last week and did a virtual head smack - wasn't this exactly the same kind of thing that I've been chiding my mom for doing? Just the other day while BF was talking to me, I drifted off into deep-ish thought and didn't respond to his questions which obviously ticked BF off - the same thing that my dad is known to do that drives everyone else crazy! I've been known to throw around my opinion to an issue that I have nothing to do with. I can be reserved to the point of being considered stuffy.
Sure I can sit here and point fingers all night but we're not playing the blame game here. And some of my more endearing traits - foot-in-mouth syndrome, anyone? - well, I believe I came up with that one all by myself. And with the not-so-awesome also come the traits that I am proud to claim from my parental units: My dad's untiring work ethic. My mom's unselfish desire to please others. My dad's even-keeled demeanor. My mom's penchant for breaking out into a big teethy smile.
So what are some of your more "favorite" unavoidable parental traits that you find yourself taking after?
