I was discussing "girlfriends" with my teenager the other day.
He's 14. He's had one "girlfriend" (if you can count one week of no contact, no talking, no nothin', as having a "girlfriend").
Here's our conversation:
Me: "Do you have a girlfriend?"
Me: "Well, good. And, I'm gonna give you a piece of advice."
He: "What's that?"
Me: "Stay away from 14 year old girls. They're crazy."
He: *shaking head, chuckling*
Me: "I'M SERIOUS!! They are! I know you'll never believe me, but I used to be a 14 year old girl once. And trust me...14 year old girls are crazy. Just stay away from them."
He: *laughing* "Okay! But, what will you tell Belle when she's 14? That 14 year old boys are crazy?"
Me: "Oh, no. Nope. Not at all. I'll tell her; 'Belle, leave the boys alone. You don't realize it yet, but you're crazy right now. It'll pass, and pretty soon, you'll be normal again. So, just leave the boys alone.'"
He: *really laughing*
Belle: "What mom?"
Me: "Nothing hon. I'll tell you when you're 14."
Cute... I like you're outlook :)ReplyDelete

LOL!!!! I love it, too funny :o) And so true!ReplyDelete
Haha!! I love it!! And I agree with you 100%! :)ReplyDelete
Too cute! I've almost survived the teenage girls but now I'm looking at the boys getting closer to "that age" and I'm scared! I really think girls are easier ;-)ReplyDelete
I am so not looking forward to the teen years with my daughter.ReplyDelete
as a mom of a 13 year old I so love thisReplyDelete
If the crazy girls talk doesn't work, tell him about the dirty girls....because my 18-year old brother is getting over mono FOR THE SECOND TIME (and he missed Homecoming TWO years in a row because of it, and of course this year he's a senior and on the football team, so he missed the big game).... So yeah, just tell him girls are dirty!! :-)ReplyDelete
At least your talking about girlfriends ;) We are talking drivers ed here... looks like Matt starts in January ;(ReplyDelete
Matt is suitably scared off of girls right now, running these past 2 weeks with 4 senior girls and their chatter has given him way more information that he did not need to know (his comments here) He is staying as far away from girls as he can..... ;)
Haha! What a great convo! Love that!ReplyDelete
Love this post! :o)ReplyDelete
