I love my nephew. I really do but sometimes he really gets to me. It’s happened so much this summer that it’s driving me crazy. I almost feel as though I can’t talk to him anymore without him getting mad at me. Of course he’s also a teenager which has a lot to do with it to I’m sure. I’m 10 years older and an adult but half the time he doesn’t listen to me which annoys me to no end. I get mad at him because if this. He doesn’t see me as anything more than a playmate. It just seems worse this summer.
My mom said she thinks it’s because we’re both growing up. In other words I’ve changed to being more of an adult than last year and I guess I have. I guess I would with everything I’ve had to deal with this past year. There’s also the fact that this is really my last summer of freedom and really being young. After all next summer, I hope to have a job. Certainly if it’s in a library, there just won’t be the option. Perhaps that fact has something to do with things but who knows. All I know is this summer has been challenging and different for me in so many ways. Also no matter his mad he gets at me, I love my nephew so much.
