Stunned Silence

It may be a little quiet on the home improvement progress this week. One, because I'm tired and really don't feel much like working on anything house related. Two, I'm busy working on sewing projects and attempting to memorize the periodic table (I swear they've added new stuff lately). And three, I'm in a state of shock.

My baby boy has been pinching pennies for awhile now. I just assumed he was saving up for a new PlayStation. He'd mentioned he wanted one. But today he let it slip in a round about way that he was actually saving money to buy something *gulp* for a girl! I'm WAY too young for him to be buying something for a girl! In fact, I'm so young he should barely even know they exist! He should be buying matchbox cars or action figures. It's going to take me awhile to process this. Even then, I know I'll never really be ready.

I know the feeling! My 19-year-old son just gave his girl a promise ring. I'm not ready for this, either. He still has GI Joe action figures in his room, for goodness sake!

Wait, WHOA, what girl;)


I know, it's Boo, right?

Renee said...

As the mother of said girl, I am totally cool with you forbidding it. Mine is even younger than yours! She still plays with Play-Doh. Oh! Is that what he's getting her????

Christine said...

LOL, maybe, I didn't even ask what he was planning to buy.

But after seeing her looking forlorn as we were leaving yesterday, then my gentle reminder to him to say goodbye, and her eyes lighting up and a huge adorable smile cross her face when he did, I'd feel like a monster to forbid it.

How about we just not encourage it? Like we said, it's taken them nearly a year just to speak to each other, I don't think we have to worry about them rushing into anything. LOL.

Well, we all know Jake has been giving A *gifts* for quite some time................I am sure it will all turn out okay;)
