13 year old boys
13 year old boys are greasy,loud,and video game obsessed…at least that’s my experience with the ones I used to hang out with. Although back when I was 13 I’m pretty sure we only had the original Nintendo to keep them busy.
My 13 year old boy is no different…hormones have turned him into a giant grease ball on most days and well he’d much rather play video games then do anything else…oh and he gets his loudness from somewhere just not sure where?
Yet..Nathaniel never ceases to amaze me either.
Yes dear readers this is where I take a minute to scratch my head and wonder how I ever got so lucky.
Even through the occasional outbreak of yelling and defiance which has actually become even less than I had expected,somehow my son has turned out to be ok.
While attempting to make dinner the other night and making a huge mess while doing so(Think King Midas,but instead of the “golden touch” I have acquired the ” clumsy touch.”) Nathaniel informed me,
” Mom after we eat dinner I’m sending you straight up to bed. I’ll take care of the rest.”
I assured him I was fine just a little more clumsy than usual. He told me he knew I was fine but that i was pregnant you know and needed my rest and he’d make sure the kids showered and went to bed on time.
As with any other 13 year old boy’s proposition I was a bit leery at first.
But not only did he make sure that yes kids got showered and went to bed on time,some even early,the next day he had me show him how to make crock pot BBQ chicken for dinner and took care of the veggies as well.
I really have been blessed with an awesome bunch of kiddos.
He has been such a huge help as well as still being able to stay a child at heart.
I must’ve done something halfway right and I thank God for His guidance in it all every day.
With all the crap my kids have been through in their short lives they seem to still get the true value of life and family an helping others.
I am a very very very Lucky Momma
