I have to share a funny thing that my son (12) said to me today.
First of all we were talking about this because of his older brothers behavior. he's 15 and has developed the very bad habit of being rude, snarky and just generally mean to everyone around him. he often doesn't even realize he's doing it and when we mention it he gets really mad. To say this is not going to be an easy teenhood is being polite. Not as bad as many others but bad enough for me.
Little brother is very aware of big brothers behavior and dislikes it just as much as I do. So just after yet another hissy fit by BB I said "God, I hope you're not like this when you're a teen."
He looks at me and says, totally seriously "So do I, otherwise it's gonna be a long 10 years!"
LOL I died laughing! I couldn't help it! When I spoke to my mom later I told her too and it just made her day!
