J + S

This is what Sabastian found etched on a plastic slime container lid that belonged to his older brother the other day. Jonathan tried to say he was writing "2 + 4" but I told him we were all smarter than that! Yes, my eldest, at the ripe old age of 13, has a special friend that is a girl.

And I'm not ready to deal with that!!!!

However, I'm dealing with it head on, as I usually deal with things, and it's actually going quite well. Perhaps he aptly realizes that I, too, am of the female variety, and can shed some light on these intriguing beings...I don't know. But we have been communicating well regarding his new friend and the pros and cons of this new relationship. Pray that I will continue to keep a level head and open heart and mind as we navigate these new waters...and if you have children who aren't teens yet...just wait! Your day is coming!!!!!

Hee hee... You know God makes us this way!! So it doesn't really scare me. But I think it does need to be guided. That's great that you can talk to him about it... I wish my parents had given me a bit more insight - especially my dad as I had no brothers and knew nothing about boys! It doesn't surprise me that Jonathan has a girlfriend... he is such a cutie! Now Craig claims that my kids are not allowed to date until after college --HA! It will be interesting watching HIM deal with all this when it happens!!
