My children have very different personalities. The oldest is kind, considerate, extremely unorganized and forgiving to a fault. Some of these traits he inherited from his mama. The youngest is cautious, focused, type A and if he’s wronged, he holds a grudge.
Proof of this was when he played baseball a couple of years ago. A little boy from an opposing team ran on the field. My child turned to me and said, “That’s the boy who took the ball away from me when I played soccer!”
He then walked past the kid, stared him down and gave him the universal sign for, “I’m watching you.”
This may not seem like a big deal ifJacksonwasn’t referring to the one season he played soccer when he was 3!
He inherited these traits, especially the grudge thing, from his dad. My husband still talks about a friend from elementary school who tore his Bo Derek poster, and even though he hasn’t seen this person in more than 30 years he insists that kid should be punished.
