As I watched Kerri dunk a chocolate chip cookie into her glass of milk, I realized that she picked that bad habit up from me. I confess, I am a dunker. I have been dunking my cookies ever since I can remember.

But Kerri dunks everything. She will dunk things into her soup. She has taken dunking to a whole new level.

It is amazing to watch my daughter pick up my habits and personalize them. Sometimes I feel like a bad Mommy, for not being more careful.

Kerri plays with her hair, like I do. She yells at the athletes on TV, like her Dad does during a hockey game. And now she is a dunker too.

Life with Kerri reminds me that our daughter learns more from our actions than our words.
