    How much nachas do you get when you hear your children repeating a phrase which you tend to use or made up? How about when they behave in a manner exactly as you do?


    When it is an admirable trait or phrase, MUCHO nachas (or mucho nachos, as we joke in my family). When it was less than admirable, it made me cringe, because kids are sponges who soak everything up, the good and the bad together. Mostly, B”H, we have been zocheh to see more of the former and less of the latter.


    its cute to see them imitate things we do and say.

    I once had a kid give a lesson to the class and she said/did some things that i know she copied from me. It was so cute!


    Btw gr8 mussar vort from here that imagine how much Nachas Hashem gets when he sees us imitating his actions, such as by being rachmonim or gomlei chasadim

    I find that if u look deeply enough into life u can find inspiration literally EVERYWHERE try it 🙂


    not2bright, I’m not sure why you call yourself that. That was very deep. Thanks for mentioning.



    I did it for those compliments 🙂 thanks. Just kidding I actually called myself that for other threads, so that nobody takes me too seriously so that I don’t start any fights. BH it hasn’t really been applicable yet.

    Remember the ad on TV: the father took his son fishing. He started to smoke. so his son did too. Children do what they see their fathers do.
