Who Knows the Mysterious Ways of the 8 Year Old Mind?

By Glinda

Why can my son remember dozens of complicated video game instructions/executions but cannot remember to hang up his towel?

Why does it take him a half hour to get dressed to go get a haircut, but 10 seconds when a friend is knocking on the door to play?

Speaking of getting dressed, why does he wear pants and a long sleeved shirt when it is hot and shorts, flip-flops, and a tee when it is freezing outside?

How is it that he still cannot understand the concept of play clothes vs. good clothes and adjust accordingly?

He is capable of sitting for long periods of time to watch television, but must be reminded at least four times a week to plant his butt on the chair when he eats at the table.

When did he begin thinking that having combed hair was the height of uncoolness?

Or that being told to brush his teeth was not merely a suggestion?

Why is it when he wants something done it has to be this instant, but when I want something done I’m told, “Mo-oom, it’s not the end of the world, you know.”


At least eight more years of this, you say?

    It’s not just you – my son is the same way. My personal favorite is the way he treats the home bathroom the same way as the boys bathroom at school – seats up for everyone!!!
