So, if you've been reading then you know about the "cute little blond girl on the bus"
We had open house at school tonight. I was anxious to meet this little girls mom, not to mention to actually MEET the little girl myself. We were about 3 minutes away from the school when I had an AHAAAA moment. I knew this little girls last name...and suddenly it hit me...."I KNOW HER MOM!" So, I get to the open house and they weren't there yet. So I first spoke with the teacher. I confirmed my AHAAA moment and then I proceeded to ask the teacher if my son and the cute girl hang out a lot at school. She said she didn't know anything about them having a little crush on each other. She also said that she would now be on the lookout!!
So the little girl and her family finally arrived to the classroom. The first thing she did was point her mom and sister in my son's direction. I hear the mom say, "oh so THAT is him!" Then she catches my eye and I say, "HE is MY son!" I proceeded to tell her that I had only realized it in the car on the way there! We don't know each other really well. We just have a mutual friend. Our friend has since moved away. But get this. When our friend moved away I hosted a luncheon at my house for all of her close friends to say goodbye. The girl's mom and I were both pregnant at the time....so my son and the cute little blond girl actually met "in utero" many years ago! HOW CRAZY IS THAT!!??
We just laughed and laughed about it. We swapped stories about the two of them being giddy about it. We were also BOTH relieved to find out that neither of us will be letting our 6 year olds have a boyfrien/girlfriend! In fact we both agree that it will be well into the teen years before that will be permitted. This woman has older daughters and has done an amazing job at guiding them through a very proper courtship (not dating) experience!
Anyway...it was kind of a funny moment as both families stood there introducing ourselves to all the other members of the family. I met the cute little girl and shook her hand and my son met her dad and shook his hand.
The mom informed me that cute little girl has already asked several times if my son could come over for a play date. We both agree on a big fat NO on that one!
OH! I don't think I told you guys about my son answering the cute little girls' note. He came home all giddy and embarrassed and informed me that "he told her." "Told her what?"
He told her that he liked her. She followed with an excited..."I KNEW IT!" and then she proceeded to jump up and down. Her mom said that was a BIG day around their house....well at least in the cute little girls world!
Seriously people.....it's soooo cute....but soooooo WAY TOO SOON!
I have a feeling we are in for a bumpy ride during those teen years! I may have a little heartbreaker on my hands!
