kid talk about kinds of kid

While i was reading a book, my son said something heartbreaking to me…

son: mom, i know u like quiet kid, i am not really a quiet kid…i am a fun kid…i like to move around and have fun all the time…

i: why do u say that? i know u are not a quiet kid…u like to talk and move around…

son: but i know u want a quiet kid…i just am not that kid…

i: i already know that…and i love u for being a fun kid…sometimes, i want u to be a quiet kid because u ask a lot of questions— difficult ones—- and i am already tired from work etc and i dont want to be thinking on how to explain things so it is easier for u to understand….u normally ask difficult/surprising questions…

son: it is because i am a curious kid…i like to know why and how things work…

i: i know…it is actually very good questions…i love the questions…it makes me think most of the time…however, there are times when i get annoyed and frustrated…

son: i know… it is ok mom…i understand… we just have to understand each other…after all, that is what family is all about…u said that to me all the time…
