- He knows the difference between the Beach Boys and the Beastie Boys. Bonus: He prefers the Beasties!
- His sense of humor is sophisticated and constant – and
(more than)occasionally inappropriate. His brothers and parents are probably equally to blame.
- He has seen every single James Bond movie and can tell you which actor played 007 in each. For the record, he’s a Roger Moore fan.
- He asks awesome questions . For instance: “How old would the Wright Brothers be if they were still alive?” and ” Who is the one who made up shoes?”
- His taste in music far exceeds his age and he has favorite songs by a diverse range of bands including the Rolling Stones, the Black Keys and Foster the People.
- He still gives me kisses, holds my hand and tells me he loves me. That makes for one sweet boy.
- Speaking of sweet, he shares his thoughts freely. My most recent favorite thing he said: “Mom, your lips taste like cupcakes.”
- His interest in history, people and places is kind of exhausting, but the sincerity of his curiosity never fails to charm.
