Four going on Fourteen

Muffin Man stands before me, hands palm up at his shoulders. A very valley-dude voice says:

"Mooooom. The printer's not working."

Hands move to his hips, arms akimbo:

"It's a real problem."

Where did this teenager come from and what did he do with my son?

Oh my. He's a very cute teenager, though!

Too funny! Sounds a lot like my 4 year old. She says things like "I'm not a big fan of X" and "X is similar to Y."

You wonder where they get it from until you hear the same phrases come out of your mouth the next day!

the glimpses of times to come...he sounds adorable!

I think he's not a real teenager until he can take it apart and fix for you on his own.

Heeheehee.

I love when you can catch glimpses of your life in 10 years. Because it sure is an excuse to drink!

"It's a real problem" -- I love it! So cute!

I can totally picture that.

Did it come with the requisite teenage sigh? If not, then he;s only masquerading as a teenager. When you get the "whole world is out to get me" sigh, THEN he's approaching the teens fast.

Oh, we definitely had the big sigh.

KLee said...

Oh, man. You're really in trouble. I would say I'd pray for you, but that might not even work.

Scary.

And did he roll his eyes? That is a killer, when your 4 year old responds to a request you make by sighing and rolling his eyes, you know you're in trouble!

I just spit!

LOL!! That is too cute.
