I am doing a 2000 piece puzzle with my son. We’re both very keen on puzzles.
“Why couldn’t you have just gotten me a board game?” he asked.
“I already told you. I wanted something we could do together.”
“You could play a board game with me.”
“I already explained why we are doing this. What? Do you want a challenging life or an easy one?”
“Challenging, of course.”
I was surprised. “Really? Why do you want a challenging life?’
“Don’t go all fortune cookie on me, Mom,” he said.
My son is “eight slash nine” now. He is 8, but he is a year ahead in school. He’s decided the kids in his class do not need to know this (Mars in Scorpio) so he is 8/9. “I am 8 when I am home and 9 when I am at school and when my birthday comes I will be 9 slash 10.
I didn’t argue. His chart is almost entirely cardinal and he runs his own life.
