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

in Family, General

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”?

  • Holly Jahangiri December 3, 2008, 5:56 am

    “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!

  • Brian December 8, 2008, 1:53 pm
