This evening I was opening a box of laundry detergent so I could wash the diapers. Shimei was highly interested in the whole process and standing there the whole time. We had the following exchange:
Shimei: What you doin’?
Me: Opening this box. What are you doing?
Shimei: Um… Watching you.
And he is. They all are. They watch everything I do.
Brett knows exactly what I say during the day because it’s what they say. You can see exactly how I treat them because it’s how they treat each other. For good or for bad, they are watching everything I do. I try to keep that always in mind because I know I will see my reflection in what they do and I want it to be a good one.
