March 29 - Gray hairs are coming...... I can feel it!

Thursday, March 29, 2012

Why you ask......?

Because I found out last night that my oldest son Jacob likes a girl. I guess I am feeling a little unprepared for this. When did he get so old so fast???

I found out by seeing high lighter marker on his neck and check. Of course he tried to bush it off when I asked him why he is wearing highlighter colors. But I am persistent and would not back down until I got an answer. He kept on saying that it was nothing until he finally caved by the sound of my demanding voice.

"It was a girl....." was what he said. And then he went on.... "and I think she likes me". Gasp!

My sister gave me the high eyebrow look and then asked him, do you like her.... "maybe" with a smile was his response. And then the question, do you think she is cute.... again "maybe" with a smile was his response.

Oh brother..... why can't he just stay little forever. Is what I was thinking.

He then went on to saying that she likes to brush her hands through his hair. (Note to self: That is why he keeps refusing a hair cut lately.)

*** WHAT?*** My urgent reaction was to say, "she is touching your hair? Is she touching you any where else like tickling or anything"?

Oh geez.... I am going to scare him for life.

I need to get a grip on this because he is going to explore these things. He is a boy. He will have a girlfriend (gulp).... he will (big gulp) kiss a girl.... and I need to learn to just let him have those moments. I just hope I didn't scare him away from ever telling me anything again. LOL... Nothing like 20 questions from your mom!


Anywho, so that was my drama from last night. Now onto today's news.....

I am having a pretty good day despite being tired. I didn't want to get my butt out of bed but then before work I was able to get done 2 loads of laundry. Huh... how did I do that being tired? I'll take it!

Had a great arm workout at the gym today that I will be feeling tomorrow. I didn't think I would be able to type afterwards and I seem to be doing ok so maybe the muscles won't be so bad after all.

Hope everyone is having a great Thursday!

    Just tell him the facts. I never pressured my son about his relationships. I knew girls liked him and he liked girls. I also know that he wasn't interested in some of the things that other boys are. He never tried to get notches on his belt. My son is now 20 and he still doesn't like to talk about relationships but he does at times.

    :) Start looking for a good colorist to hide the gray. LOL! It's so hard to watch our babies grow up. They are always babies to us.

    Glad you killed your workout!! Have a great Friday!!!

    I wonder if that's how my mom's reaction when me and brother first time like someone, hehe. And for me, I've never learn my lesson - don't share "I like this guy" to my mom and brother coz they will howl with laughter!

    Been there, still going through it. My son is now 16 so I've had a few years to get used to it but now my daughter (13) is liking boys. She's already had a boyfriend - for 9 total days until I insisted on meeting him & he became MIA so she dumped him. At least she knows her own self worth but it's making me old fast!
