Having an 8 yr. old boy is always interesting. Since I am not a boy (obviously) and didn’t grow up one, it is a learning experience. I have learned from my son….
~ Changing your socks isn’t important
~Changing and/or wearing underwear is and will always be optional
~ Nothing is more funny than talking about bodily functions especially farting
~ Simply getting wet in the shower is considered bathing (soap is optional)
~ Any movie that has “bad words” in it will make them laugh uncontrollably
~ Robin Williams and Jim Carey can make my son laugh uncontrollably to the point he is gasping for air
~ The ideal wardrobe is anything made of sportswear
~ Lifting up the seat is optional
~ Putting the seat down is optional as well
~ Sports should be a major subject in school
~ Burgers and fries are a major food group
~ Sweets are too
~ Drinking “beer” (root beer or birch beer) is just like an adult beverage especially when it is in the bottle
~ Air fresheners are a must and should be bought in bulk
~ Sitting still…what is that?
~ Dress the part
~ He wants to be a “guy” but is still a little boy
~ Kissing your mom becomes fist pumping your mom
~ Will occasionally still grab your hand when walking
~ Loves me and his sisters more than anything but shhhhh….don’t let his sisters know
What have you learned from your child(ren) lately?
