Father-figure to Orangeboy: "Tomorrow's the first day of school, Fourth Grader!"
Orangeboy: "Who me? -Ye-uhh."
FF: "Aren't you excited to be going back to school!?"
O: "No, not ree-wee."
FF: "But you love doing worksheets, don't you?"
O: "Well, yes."
Mom: "And you love rules, right?"
O: (head duck - guilty as charged)
FF: "And you love math - you want to be a math professor, don't you?"
O: "Yes. I do."
FF: "And you LOVE to get up early in the morning, right!?"
O: "No. That's the one thing I don't really like."

I've been reading about what Orange Boy might want to be when he grows up with great interest. This is something I admit I spend a lot of time thinking about for my kids - how to guide them toward their interests.
