Should I Be Worried?

Connor is the best kid. Seriously, other people talk about how wild their boys are: destructive, rambunctious, and so on. But Connor has been mellow and even tempered since birth. He's never been much of a complainer, he never even complained when he was teething as a baby. I remember once being shocked to find that he was cutting four teeth - I had no idea because he didn't make a single peep about it. He is sweet, generous, helpful, and he loves to create violent comic books.

Yep, everyone else can gloat because while their boys were busy starting fires in the garage and cutting their sister's Barbie clothes to shreds, our son was busily plotting his future as a serial killer, complete with bloody pumpkins and Justin Bieber jumping out of a helicopter onto a bed of metal spikes.

That's our boy.

I love his idea for Nightmare on Elmo Street, starring Freddie Forker (with forks for claws, get it? hahahaha), which he shared with me on the way home from school and plans on creating this weekend.

Actually I think my son has an epic sense of humor, especially for a 7-year old. I love that he has a series of shark comics and his friends at school anxiously await the newest edition. I love that he explains his jokes to Chris and I like we are a couple of simpletons and then laughs hilariously at himself.

No, I'm not worried. I'm a proud mama.

I think it is great that he is so creative. It will help in the future to get a head. Be proud. He is a great kid.
