This kid? Wow. This kid is everything I ever hoped my son would be at nine-years-old and is simultaneously everything that drives me bonkers.
He’s smart. He’s smart-mouthed.
He’s funny. He’s a class clown.
He’s confident. He demands the center of attention.
He’s coordinated. He’s quite busy.
He’s curious. He’s relentless.
He loves to have fun. He sometimes likes to have fun at others’ expense.
He knows his own mind. He also knows mine.
The kids have recently discovered dad’s electric guitar. This one’s got just enough of his dad in him that he’s completely obsessed with it…for this week. I walked downstairs last night and found him playing it. Wearing my sunglasses.
This kid. He makes me smile, when I’m not cringing. I just love him.
