Randomness

My nephews were over the other day. They are 17 and 15....and my 12-year-old son idolizes them. He always wants them around, and he always wants to hang out with them, playing mind-numbing video games.

And then there was this exchange:

Nephew: "You know. I really wanted to smack Chad just now".

Me: "Hmmm....what's the problem?? What did he do now?"

Nephew: "I was trying to get him to play Call of Duty 4 with me. And he told me no. He said he would rather go to his room and finish his book. It was getting good! WHY would he rather READ?"

Me: "That's my Boy!!"

Lol. Sounds like you raised him right! My mom never got the whole enjoying reading thing until a couple of years ago when I made her try one of my then favorite stories. Now she reads all the time.
