Just Like You

So there is something that gets said from parents to their grown kids who are about to have kids.

‘ I hope your kids are just like you’

And some parents are like yeah… then they’ll be awesome.

That is……….

until you actually have a kid that is just like you.

I think my kids are so weird and hyper and wild and talkative. But everyone in my family is just laughing at me because apparently I am finallly getting the same treatment they got when I was a kid.

Now this is all fine and dandy.

Its the cirlce. Your parents dealt with you and now you’re dealing with your kids who act just like you. It happens pretty much every generation.

I am fine with that.

However, what I am not fine with that. I am fine with them being curious hyper talkative kids. Because they’re also really smart.

What I am not okay with and what I am actually worried about.


Is them being exactly like me.

In regards to my soul crushing anxiety.

I would never wish this on anyone….Ever.

So here begins my journey to make sure that they don’t have to deal with it.. Hopefully.

Anxiety can be a battle, but you don't have to go it alone. Plus I like to cook, take photographs and review shows
