So, I know that kids are tweaked…all of them. It’s just their nature. I have one especially super tweaker kid, but they are all their share of tweaked.
My super tweaker (not mentioning any names and I bet none of you can guess, right? Right!!) is a really loud, crazy, odd, darling, funny, talented, child who makes weird noises constantly (I think I need to write Julian Smith’s mom and ask if she was worried when he was young…..the answer probably won’t make me feel any better, but might help me prepare emotionally for the future). He was being unusually loud(er) and I was holding my head saying stop, stop, stop you’re driving me crazy. And he said “I can’t mom, I have the energy of a cow”. Hm. Oh…..yeah……I get it….no, I don’t.… Here ‘s his explanation: “Cows are moving, moving, moving their mouths all day long…chew, chew, chew. They never stop moving their mouths…..they have lots of energy…..just like me”. Okay. Yep, I get the mouth thing. – boy do I. And be assured that this wisdom was offered about 40 decibels above normal in a squeaky, cartoon character voice. Tweaker. Did I mention that he plays the drums? Figures, huh?
