Tommy Smothers, the comedian would stutter "Oh yeah, well, well," when he was feeling inferior to his brother.
Parents have the same rules, the same boundaries, and equal love for each child, yet they turn out different.
One is a good student, and the other could care less, only attending school for the social aspects.
One is on the honor role, while the second child barely graduates.
I remember sitting at a table with "one of those" proud parents. “Henry is graduating with a 4.2.and has a scholarship for his grades. I am so excited he has a full ride at Annapolis and is on the first string for the football team."
Once I had enough, I interrupted, "Oh yeah! Well, well, my kid is graduating with a real diploma!"
I don't know where that kid from Annapolis is today, but I am pretty sure that my kid, the pilot, will have him as a passenger on his plane someday.
There is a basic that holds true; raise up a child the way he should go, and when he is OLD he will not depart from it. That is a scripture that we forget.
OLD is the key- we don't know when that is. Until then- follow Tommy Smothers lead, "Oh yeah, well, well, my kid is pretty fantastic too!"
