I Love my Old{er} Child!

Have you ever heard others talk about children being older than they really are?
I am the Mother to one of those....maybe two....maybe even three.

I love old{er} people. Always have....unless they had long, bushy beards, but thats another post for another time.

Old{er} people have personalities. Older people have very distinct moods. Older people say what theyre thinking even if it doesnt make sense and even if it isnt the nicest thought. Older people are set in their ways and will not change.

I like that.

Unless it is a 6 year old.

Or an 87 year old living in the body of a 6 year old.

I have one of those.

My 6 year old who I am convinced is really an 87 year old and is just fooling us with a youthful costume is "old".

He has a very strong personality. It is his way or no with it.

He has very distinct moods. Very angry and over-the-top happy.

He says exactly what he is thinking without using any sort of filter before blurting the words out. An example for you. "Mom, your butt is big."

See? No filter.

He is set in his ways and will not change no matter what you say or do. He likes to roll the bottom of his jeans up and wear floppy socks. He drowns his pancakes in syrup and likes bologna and ketchup sandwiches with the crust cut off.

My {senior} child enjoys Bluegrass music and western movies. He loves working out in the yard. He likes going to bed and getting up early. He has work pants and work boots and requested one of these. See what I mean??????

I love older people but living with them isnt the easiest.

Good thing he is cute.

Haha- He'll take good care of you when you are old. 'Cause you're definitely not there yet!

I know what you mean about old people ... it is like they just don't have to care anymore. I love the Face in Hole ... I'm a big fan of that site!

Oldest child sounds like your hubby!

Kids definitely come with pre-set personalities!

This post? Is AWESOME. It will be one you can both look back on and get a good laugh out of (of the 'funny because it's true!' variety). I LOVE it!!!
