My nephew is KILLING me...
"I believe the children are our future, teach them well and let them lead the way..."
I do not believe Whitney Houston ever met my 10 yearold nephew, Beau. She might have never written this great ballad from the 80s had she known Beau. Goodness, he is a handful. He is smarter than the average bear which makes him dangerous. He is successful at pretty much everything he does which does not help his attitude. He is an only child, so he thinks the world revolves around him. And, to top it off he has great communication skills. So, you get to listen to how smart he is, how successful he is and how the world revolves around him. I am so glad he knows more than everyone else or he could be in trouble.
Well, he's not that bad, I guess. :)
He's just so stinking funny and cute; it is hard to get too upset with him. Ah, but, I did tonight. I had the distinct pleasure of trying to work with him to improve his writing skills as he prepares to take the Florida Writes test on Tuesday. Every bit of instruction or helpful hint I had for him was met with some explanation of how he already knew that or how I was wrong. If I can get him to write the way he argues and supports his arguments when he is flappin' those lips he will kill the test (if I do not kill him first - jk). I know he will do fine.
But, I do have to say, I wouldn't trade him for the world. He is so inquisitive and full of life. He never has met a stranger and loves everyone. He pretty much is the best nephew in the world. I'll keep him.
Good Night, all!
