I have been blessed to have both a boy and a girl. The Inventor is currently 12, soon to be 13 and SportTman is 15. As you can see from the picture above, they are both such lovely children!
I have noticed a “few” differences between them over the years, and just recently heard these things around my house.
The Inventor, ” Mom, have you seen my TEAL shirt?”
SportTman, “What is TEAL?”
The Inventor, “It’s a shade of green, with a bit of blue in it.”
SportTman, “Then just call it greenish, w/ some blue!!!!”
I sat and talked with The Inventor for over a half hour, I had gone in to say good night, and what followed was a usual lengthy bedtime discussion.
I then went down to say good night to SportTman, he simply said “Good night Mom” and he was off to sleep!!!
