Nature or Nurture?

During our weekly trip to the Schenectady Greenmarket, we took refuge from the rain in the Open door bookstore, where a short while later I saw the following scenes at opposite ends of the kids-book aisle (also the “Featured Image” for this post, but I’ll reproduce it to save the RSS folks from having to click through):

SteelyKid and The Pip, both reading.

So, clearly, they take after me and Kate…

(We ended up buying the “How to Make Paper Airplanes” book SteelyKid is looking at, because paper airplanes are awesome. The music-playing book about an orchestra that The Pip is looking at went back on the shelf over his protests, though, because we don’t really need any more noisy toys in the house.)
