The shallow end
A colleague came by my work cube today and commented on the pictures of Deaglan.
"He looks just like you." she said.
My heart did a little leap.
It's funny how you take an opinion like this as a compliment. Both Shaune and I hear comments like these all the time. We've noticed that people think the baby looks like the person they know better. So if it is a friend or family member of mine they usually think Deaglan looks just like me and the same goes for Shaune if they know him better.
I'm surprised by this aspect of parenthood. I'm sort of embarrassed that I am absolutely thrilled when I hear that my son looks like me.
