My son, it says, be wise and incline your ear to wisdom. Why doesn't 11 month old Angelo get this! Maybe I'm not putting out any wisdom for his ear to incline to? Maybe he's in outright rebellion against myself and his mother? Maybe he is deaf?
Oh wait, no it's probably because he is 11 MONTHS OLD!
Just thinking about these things makes me feel nice. Sure son, let's put maple syrup on that waffle that you have to eat with your tiny, sticky hands. You can incline that ear later, once mommy has given you a bath.
