Over an Hour?! Give Me a Break!

Thank you all for being honest about my nakedness. I mean, thank you for talking so openly about being naked. I mean, thank you for sharing your own struggle with being naked. I mean - oh sugar. What the heck DO I mean? I know I mean thank you. :)

Speaking of being naked ... no, this isn't a naked soul story. Oatmeal Head has been on the phone with A GIRL for the last hour. There'd better not be any nakedness involved. At all. In any form. And what do I overhear? He's telling her his reading level and that his mother is a writer with a large vocabulary. Except he has such a difficult time expressing his creative self verbally. I'm sitting here silently laughing. Grateful, on the one hand, that he's so awkward and arrogant. Maybe she'll see the light and move on to someone a little more mature who doesn't sword fight in the hall with his little brother while talking to a girl on the phone. On the other hand, I really do want him to be well-spoken and graceful. But he's a 14 year old boy, so I don't think that's possible. Thank God!

Is it Thursday already? When did that happen? Did you do that? Well stop it. I don't want it to be Thursday yet. My Hunny is gone to a conference in Oklahoma City (everyone at work was grumbling about the location), and the kids finished school last week, so my schedule's all off.

Oop! He's off the phone. Time for the interrogation. And the mumbled responses. And the broad smiles and evasive answers.

Until I write again ...

Yeah.... Jock is talking to girls now, too. About more than lunch.

Ya know... I was an awesome parent of a baby, toddler, child, even a pre-teen. Why'd he have to mess with a good thing and become a teenager? This? I'm not doing so well.

How did your one-sided conversation go? :)

Soooo cute! At least he's talking so you can hear part of it...IM's and texts are much harder to eavesdrop on!

Oh, wow! I am so not ready for that. I have eleven years to figure it out I guess...

My daughter is 14 and she was just on the phone....hmmmmm, they weren't talking to each other were they? ;o)

Jan Parrish said...

LOL. Enjoy it while it lasts.

The phone rings, the girl answers, giggles ensue, she walks into her room and shuts the door behind her... more giggling.
TOG and AG roll their eyes at each other!

Oh Dear. Boys are not old enough mentally for consumption by girls at 14. Are they? I guess it's always a good thing that it's a girl, huh? Our son was always so into video games & sports, he seldom thought of girls. That came later, lol.

What a funny Mom you must be... and insightful as well!
Are we gonna get the scoop on the girl in a future post?
