How to torture a nearly nine year old

Tell him he is what he eats. And then tell him to eat a cutie. You know those little clementines?
And then laugh maniacally.

Then, when he gets mad, tell him he's eaten too many sour apples. Then laugh so hard that tears start running down your face.

Then, when he yells across the room, "I HATE CUTIES!" start fake crying, really loudly. And wait for his little sister to rat him out that he's smiling.

It's almost as good as kissing him goodbye right in front of all his friends at school. Or telling his friend that he can't come play until he's cleaned up the playroom.

I can't wait until he's a teenager.

Sounds like you have a great head start in dealing with a teenager!

Your nine-year-old nephew thought this was hilarious... maybe because it wasn't HIS mom doing it... !
