A Chip off the Old Block
3/25/2008 8:05:24 PM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

It’s something I used to hear grown folks say when they were bragging about their own children.
There’s a saying that goes, “The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree.” It’s something I used to hear grown folks say when they were talking about other people’s children. Usually, it was something bad. My mother, for example, could always tie a child’s bad behavior back to a parent.

There was another saying grown folks had: “He’s (or she) a chip off the old block. Normally, this was something they’d say when they were bragging on their own children.

Well, I’m going to combine the two sayings as I express my pride in my daughter’s performance last night at the Exchange Club Speakers Competition. Janie competed against eight other high school seniors and walked away with a $500 college scholarship. Yes, she’s a chip off the old block because her mother was a speaking champion in both high school and college. So naturally, it has to be in the genes! And no, the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree---and even when it does, I know how to pick it back up and place it where it rightfully belongs!

Praise God!
