middle school angst part 2

Note: This blog is turning into a series of Asherisms.  I'll try and write a real post again soon!

Tonight, before bed, I mentioned to Asher that in a few years, he can have his own room downstairs. (We have a small guest quarters downstairs with a separate entrance. I am nervous for the boys to have their room downstairs because we live in a densely populated neighborhood…. so the boys share a room upstairs next to our bedroom).  

I thought he would be excited.

"NO WAY!"  he said.  "Only teenagers who drink alcohol want their own bedroom away from their parents.  I don't want to be the kind of teenager who has to drink alcohol."

Asher thinks it over and then says, "Maybe Noe can move downstairs."
