9 Going on 29
So, the 9 year old thinks he's half grown. Unfortunately thanks to the genetic roulette wheel, he'll probably always be on the short side. Neither his father nor myself are what you'd call tall. But lately, I've had more and more people ask how old he is and state that he looks MUCH older than he is. What? This kid that doesn't bathe unless threatened with his life? The one that refuses to clean up after "the babies" or "the little jerk?" You mean the one that argues over things as simple as taking out the trash? (by the time he argues his point, he could have done the dreaded task and been on his way) Surely you don't mean the one that is too lazy to tie his shoes and too lazy to put his dirty clothes in the hamper? Older? No way!
