Not that she hasn't had a rush of boys wanting her to be their girlfriend, and one or two of them have even caused her to shed a tear or two. But for her to mention that she found someone attractive - well this is just moving into a whole new place that I seriously don't think I am ready for.
But, I am curious so I ask her what he looks like. She stammers a little "um... well... he has brown hair and kind of tall, that's about it". Well that describes about 1/2 of the boys in her school. So really wanting to find out what she thinks is "cute" I name several boys that we know and ask her which ones she thinks are the cutest. She starts giggling and turns a light shade of pink.
So I think I should help her out a little and I tell her which ones I think are the cutest. She says "But that doesn't count because you're just a mom!" WHOA!!! "What??? Just because I am a mom doesn't mean that I don't know who is cute!" She stares at me for a minute and then doubled over with laughter.
I ask her what is so funny, which just causes more hysterical laughter.
Seriously - she can't even stand up she is laughing that hard.
I am at a loss, so I turn to leave. "Wait Mom don't leave!" But as soon as I turn back towards her, she doubles over with laughter again.
I look at this girl-child, that is now almost as tall as me and I see a glimpse of the stunning young women that she is becoming. I want to hold on to her tight, not let her grow up... I mean yesterday I was awesome, today I am just funny I guess...
I liked being awesome!
