There was an article in the Wall Street Journal recently that made me stop and think about how I feel about motherhood and whether I make decisions as a mother based on what I think is right or based on what others tell me is the right thing to do.
My dad is a spitting image of Tim Allen – Tim Allen from Tool Time, hows that for dating myself? Was the name of the show Tool Time or was that just the show on the show? Either way, my Dad is that character, although Im not sure he would look as much like him, if their personalities didnt seem so spot on. When I asked my Dad if he knew what celebrity I thought he looked like, he said Pierce Brosnan (hes going to kill me for saying that). But hes kind of right, sort of, hes a Pierce/Tim hybrid, with all “Tim the Tool Time” personality.
Ive always been fascinated by birth order and how it can shape an individuals personality so significantly. When you think about it, in which order you are born is arbitrary, it’s not like all the bossy people happen to come out of the womb first…but is it coming out of the womb first that makes you bossy? Birth order can also have an impact on your personal relationships, like your marriage.
