OMG my 14yr old has a girlfriend!



Last night, out of the blue, DS turns to me and says "I asked a girl to be my girlfriend today." I was kind of shocked, but I asked him "What did she say?" "Yes." I'm thankful he was comfortable coming to me to tell me, but wow.



I was totally not expecting this to happen so soon. I didn't have my first boyfriend until I was a sophmore in high school. I was a band geek, though.

We asked him to tell us about her, and he started to get embarrassed. We said, "Well, what does she look like?" He said "Well, she isn't exactly super skinny...not really super skinny...but not obese...she is just naturally a bigger girl..." My heart broke that he felt that he needed to defend her like that. He said she is REALLY nice, with long wavy brown hair. They sit at the same lunch table, and a week ago they started sitting next to each other.

I'm not ready for this.

Re: OMG my 14yr old has a girlfriend!

if you are okay with him having a girlfriend, why not invite her over for family pizza night or something?

its awesome he feels okay talking to you about her.
