Measuring the Void in a 50% Filled Glass

I've got a budding pessimist on my hands and I'm all sorts of shocked about what to do about it. I take a few deep breaths and remind myself that he only gets this way when he's tired. Plus - puberty - maybe that's it? Maybe its just a phase he'll go through, then afterward be a budding optimist just like his old man! Surely I was surly at that age too?

Last day of school and I ask if he's excited - I know he's really looking forward to spending some time with his friends in Texas. But what do I get as a reply?

Not really because the last day of school means Summer Vacation and if I have too much fun it'll go too fast then school will start up again and I'll feel like I missed it all. So I'm kinda bummed about Summer Vacation.

SOMEONE TALK ME OFF THE LEDGE!

Well...., it does show he has reached a level of maturity to utilize abstract thinking! :p

True...perhaps I am the pessimist here?

Hormones...just gotta love those puberty hormones!!! Bambam already thinks he's a teenager at the age of 10. Granted he is already as big as a teenager.
