One day last week, I picked my son up from school and started asking him about his day. He told me a few things about his day (Despite all the years of trying to train him to tell me everything, I’m lucky to get a few details! I need more details!!). Then we talked about how he needs to remember to always pay attention and listen really good in class. He assured me he is doing a better job at this, and we moved on.
Fast forward about 10 minutes…
We’re driving along, listening to the radio, and I’m deep in thought when Caleb said something. I heard him talk but I wasn’t paying attention, so I had to ask him what he said again.
“I guess it runs in the family!”
That was it! Hilarious!! I started cracking up laughing because that comeback was too perfect! He caught me not listening and called me on it!
I told this story to my parents, and my dad was like “And he’s not even a teenager yet!”
We have 4 1/2 years until he is a teenager, and I can tell it’s going to be a fun, interesting ride!
