He's a man already...

Yes, the boy may only be 4 but he's already a man.

It's been hot here, see, and so he sweats.

And his back itches.

And he can't reach it.

So he asks me to scratch his back for him.

... I just shake my head.

I've got to teach him to scratch on a wall corner like Papa does!

Have to share this one now. My nephew Ryan is six and in preschool. He doesn't like finger painting but loves to read and so when they were finger painting one day he gets up, puts his stuff away and grabs a book.

Well, his teacher comes over and says "Ryan, don't you want to keep painting?"

He looks at her, gives a deep sigh and says "Naw, I think I've had enough of that bullshit for one day."

We don't know if he learned that from his dad, his uncles or his grandfather, but we are all proud. Except mom - she tells us that we have to watch what we say now.
