"Mom, there's this boy..."




So....

           My Daughter came to me and told me there's this boy....




Rational Mom response in BLUE

Mom's inside voice in RED



                                     "Mom, there's this boy....


"Oh....OK go on."

"Oh, hell no....go to your room!"

                                 

                                       ...and he's really nice"    


"Oh...OK...I would hope so."


"There are no "Nice boys" at fifteen... they are all hormone seething, boobie obsessed werewolves!"

                       
                         "Well, I like him...and he likes me too"



"OK, tell me a bit more about him."

"Go to your room and don't come out 'til you're 30!"



                            "He goes to a church regularly and he's really sweet."



"Well so far so good."


"Oh...PLA-ease!"

 

                                      
                              "He wants me to be his girlfriend."



"Well, I don't blame him. You are a beautiful, smart young lady."

"Oh no he di-n't!"



                                         "I wanted to ask you first."



"I appreciate that. When you say "Girlfriend" what does that mean to you?"

"I said ROOM....NOW....'til 30!!!! And if I hear the words, kissing, car dates or see any hint of hickeys. I might be going to jail!"

                                   

                                        "Well, we'd probably just hold hands."



"Yes, holding hands is OK I guess."


"Right,....ahem..."holding hands"....is that the new lingo for making out? Yep, I'm headed for jail for sure."



                                           "So...Mom....what's your answer?"




"I'll have to think about it and both Dad and I have to talk to you later."

"Before I talk to your Father I'm going to Mexico because doctors here don't have enough legal prescription drugs available that will fix the anxiety I feel right now! Are ya happy now?...Mama is about to become a drugged out zombie! Dr. Phil here I come!"


                                                
                                   "How do you think Dad will react?"



"Most likely He will react just like I did ."


"I'll call the paramedics."


Boo gets turned into garbage

  10. I'm laughing about the "Go to your room until you're 30" line. Oh Joanne, I actually think that's amazing that she asked for your permission first. How many kids do that? I've never heard of that. It sounds like you can trust her. I know, that's not the issue. The issue is that a teen boy is a teen boy. All I can say is keep breathing, and keep faith.
