You know the teenage years will be fun when…


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.

His response…

“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!
