Wednesday's Child

If you have energy, listen to country music, like pizza, and have energy, then listen up. I have the 10-year old for you!

We spent the day at the Parkersburg YMCA where David showed me his skills of all sorts for this month's Wednesday's Child.

If practice makes perfect, you will be getting an earful from David!

Whether it's singing to country music group Sugarland, or stepping up to the mic for a joke.

"What do you call a cow laying down? Tired!"

The bad joke culprit is Jen David's social worker. She says there is never a dull moment with the third grader. He's sharp, smart, and gets good grades, even though he's at the age where school isn't so cool.

"I hate school. You have to be there for eight hours, says the drama-filled David.

Another place where David scores big points is on the basketball court.

Along with the smooth moves this charismatic kid has a passion for people, and is in the market for an attentive family.

"I want a good mom an dad and I would like to have a baby brother, but a girl, they're brats!"

So, now that you know David is not a brat. Here are some things you should know about him.

He loves pizza and pumpkin pie, but not together. He likes to "play my guitar, play my keyboard that I got for Christmas."

And like most boys his age David likes just about every sport on the field, under the sun, or on the hardwood.

But what most kids want, but will almost never tell you, is love.
