Aw, Kelly, your entry cracked me up. You are so cute, stressing over your little boy growing up. It sounds like you are managing to appropriately restrain yourself. Though it's natural to worry, it's very clear you are raising two incredible kids. The fact that you have established such a close relationship with your son will tide you over, even if he pulls away for a while. A COLORING BOOK??!! How funny is that?! But be grateful he's still willing to share with you all those details of what he did without fear of being judged!

ugh!

Big hugs Kelly!!!

I can't even imagine! Oh how hard that must be, but I have to giggle at you being Miss Priss. I was tomboy/cowgirl until about 16... and all my "loves" went unreturned. I guess that was a lucky thing for my mom!!!

Keep us posted! The build-a-bear has me cracking up. Though it does seem this girl has him wrapped around her finger...

Becky

Ack...Adam is 12. I'm so not even ready to BEGIN thinking about this. Your post scares me and makes me smile all at the same time. Weird, eh?

Shawn

I so know where you are coming from. Drew is going to his first HomeComing Dance tonight. Wish I was in VA to see him, take a snapshot and give him a huge hug. I want to check out this girlie too.

well at least you have a sense of humor about it. It will get easier....when he's like................... 35........

Kelly, My mom used to tell me age 8-10 is the best. Wearing the battle scars, and I DO mean battle scars, of parenting two sons, currently 19 and 16, I can only tell you the roller coaster you're riding now will only increase in G-forces. Be pleased that your son has learned through the lens of his family how to treat women. Too many of them aren't getting that lesson.

And yup, it's hard. Very hard!

I dont' even want to think about the dating thing yet, for either sex!

OHHHH< remember my Madison story a few weeks ago.. well that was NOTHING compared to what you are going through but I TOTALLY feel like I know you're "pain".... My Jacob, thus far, has not had that ONE serious relationship YET... thankfully... I'm like you.. I just don't even KNOW how to comprehend this change. GIRL.... just hang on for the ride... that's what I've been trying do.

Katrina

Oh my!!! I'm not ready for this, either...I *beg* Hope for information about who she likes, who likes her, etc...b/c I can already feel her shutting me out. I guess we have to figure out how to hold on tight at the same time that we're letting go.

Heather

EEK! Build A Bear??? Oh my. Sending you strength to get through this.

We tease Ian about girls and dates. . .that if he keeps smacking his lips when he eats, no girl will want to go out with him, etc. But to think of him actually dating??? Oh my!

((((((Kelly))))))

Whoopsie - sorry about the double post. Consider yourself hugged twice! =)

Cathy

I'm a couple of years behind you so I've got no experience with this... but I've gotta tell ya' - I'm scared as heck to think of my ds where John is now.

No advice, just the encouragement to keep doing what you're doing. Your good relationship is great footing for him to step out from... and you can be there for him when he falls.

Hugs.

Yep! Being a mom to a boy is hard at times. Letting him grow up takes alot of patience. I've raised three silly, disgustingly gross, highly intelligent, hard working, loving, (shall I go on about my wonderful boys?) young men. Just remember that no matter what he does or who he happens to be "in love" with this week, his beautiful MOM will always be his first love. My sons are now 26, 21 & 19 and I am happy to say that each of them call me everyday, even the married one! That's love! Enjoy him...sounds like you are doing a fantastic job.

Oh gosh, Kelly...my heart is literally racing as I read this. I can see my life fast-forwarding before my eyes and I can put myself EXACTLY in your shoes. I want time to stand still and I don't want to be THERE! :(

You know, just tonight Noah and I were walking down the stairs to meet David and my mother-in-law for dinner and as we were walking, he put his arm in mine, as if to "escort" me down the stairs. I smiled and said, "are you my date this evening?" He's five, so he said, "what's a date?" I said, "that's when a boy and girl go and do something together, like go out to eat or to a movie." As I fixed his hair in the mirror, standing behind him, he said, "I'll NEVER do that! Yuck!" I sighed and smiled, knowing that like your John, he'll change his mind soon enough. SCREAM!!!

Big Mommy hugs for you, my friend!
