Comparative analysis of a 4-year-old son versus a 14-year-old son

03 Aug

4-YEAR-OLD: Never wants to go to sleep because there are so many fun things to do. Wakes you up before your alarm goes off every day.
14-YEAR-OLD: Would sleep all day if you let him.

4-YEAR-OLD: Knows all the words to all the Blue’s Clues songs and sings them in the car, at the grocery store, at Target, and pretty much anytime.
14-YEAR-OLD: Knows all the words to all the Green Day songs but will only sing them if he thinks no one is listening. Pretends he never liked Blue’s Clues.

4-YEAR-OLD: Thinks you know everything.
14-YEAR-OLD: Thinks HE knows everything.

4-YEAR-OLD: Gives you hugs and kisses when you drop him off at school.
14-YEAR-OLD: Is embarrassed if someone sees you wave goodbye to him.

4-YEAR-OLD:Wants to be a firefighter.
14-YEAR-OLD:Wants to design video games of zombie firefighters.

4-YEAR-OLD:Tells you almost every day that he’s never going to move out because he’d miss you too much.
14-YEAR-OLD:Every other day, says he can’t WAIT until he’s old enough to move out because he’s tired of being treated like a CHILD all the time and YOU ARE SO UNFAIR!

    As the mother of a 4-year-old boy… this makes me weep. šŸ˜›

    It all gets better the first time THEIR kid gets sick the first time and you know exactly what to do.

    So, have to admit I am skewed towards favoring the 14 yr. old solely on the lack of sleep associated with young kids. Someday I’ll be hating myself for saying this, but the teenage years are looking sooooo good right now…;)
