Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.

Monkey-see, Monkey-do

I don't know how many of you have heard this expression, but it was something I grew up hearing in the South. It's just something people say when they're talking about how people (little boys and girls or adults) try to copy what others are doing. Monkey-see, Monkey-do...

Corbin is so into being like Logan. He will dress like him...they do have some shirts that are alike. He always wants to eat the same things he does...he has changed his order in restaurants because he heard what Logan ordered and had to have that! He likes a lot of the same toys Logan likes...such as Legos, Bionicles, and trains. He says the same things Logan says. He will also copy, immediately, Logan's behavior. Poor Logan, he's always hearing his dad and I tell him that he must be responsible and set a good example because his little brother (and sister) is watching him. I know he didn't ask to be that example, but that's the way it is. Anyway, Corbin's been wanting us to cut his hair to look like Logan's for months now. We were holding off because his beautiful curls were really the last vestiges of his babyhood! He has all but left behind the days of cuddling with Mommy and Mommy kisses...I steal them anyway as often as I can! Alas, my baby's growing up.
