It’s going to be a loooong adolescence

21 Apr

‘Nobody understands me. Nobody. Nobody understands how it is to be me.’

He is prone across his bed, words muffled by his pillow but audible nonetheless, his fingers in his ears. He is six years old.

    On the bright side, it’s nice to have a warning.

    Oh the poor child. Fancy working that out this early in life.

    He’s going to find it awfully hot wearing all black in Abu Dhabi, poor kid.

    I find the best response is to lie on the floor, kick your heels and yell “nobody understands what it’s like to be me, EITHER!”

    If nothing else, it’s great stress relief, and the look of disbelief on the kids faces is priceless.

    Commiserations. Mine has started worrying teenager-like behaviour and pronouncements, too. It’s too early!

    I like kazari’s suggestion, might try it myself …

    … sounds like he’s going to grow up to be a writer.

    And you’re tagged –

    Yep. They’re starting it earlier these days. We get a lot of “why is my life so unfair?” or “since when am I the servant?”. He’s 8.

    Oh, that’s too painfully familiar for words. Squiss is five and a half and right there with him.

    Scotch, anyone?
