A New Book for My Christmas List? (followed by an evil chuckle … he he he)

Published by on

I’m thinking I might get this book for Sam for Christmas

Mostly just to watch him turn a g’zillion shades of red, slap his hand to his cheeks ‘Home Alone’ style and scream AHHHHHHH! My eight year old son, would DIE a thousand deaths to find this in his stocking. So even though the naughty part of me would love to TEASE him, I’m going to give it a pass. It’s not easy … my need to tease is rather HUGE.

Way to go, to little Alec Greven, while I am not sure you should be writing on this subject at 9 years old, I am impressed that you can and you did; and that people are buying it. You’re a savvy little entrepreneur.

I found this nifty little nugget thanks to thesassykathy.

@Naomi — What part do you find bizarre? A 9 year old writing a book, the content of the book, my son most likely being mortified by the book’s content, me resisting the urge to torture my son, or something else entirely?

LOL – but at 9, shouldn’t “how to talk to girls” consist of “pretty much like you talk to boys, only with less mention of farting and poop and stinky feet”?

“whatever else, don’t act desperate”? LOL!! The kid’s smart. Good advice, no matter what your age.

Hehe…that is so funny. I would probably threaten to get it for him, but not actually do it. ;)

PS- You asked how tall Butterfly was? At the doctor’s 6 months ago she was 47 inches and 3 years old. SO TALL.

@ Holly –> hahaha, that made me laugh.

@ Jenn B –> I am thinking of just telling him about the book, that will be fun enough.

@ Safire –> Great minds think a like! I am going to do just that! WOW, that is tall. Tall is GOOD.

Hi MK – how ridiculous is this kid? i mean, good for him for getting a BOOK DEAL at 9 years old… but sheesh! craziness. at 9 i was… i don’t even know… playing a lot of four square in my driveway? certainly not writing advice books on relationships :) thanks for stopping by my blog!

I say mortify him anyway! He’s only 9 once and it’s one of our mommy perks. :)

That’s hilarious–a 9 year-old player! I prefer to think that 9 year-old boys don’t care about what girls think of them. At least that’s how I remember most 9 year old boys were like when I was young.

I think this kid’s parents need to invest some time in some serious and early sex education!
