As some of you know, DS4 has been crushing on a 17 year old for over a year. We'll call her E.

My brother's girlfriend is in town for the week. We'll call her H. DS knew she was coming to town, was super excited, wanted to see her as soon as she got in, insists on sitting next to her, you get the idea.

Yesterday while we were at the park, me, H, and my sister were sitting on a bench. DS informed my sister that she needed to move so he could sit by H.

I asked DS, "Babe, what about E? Isn't she your girlfriend?" He got a funny look on his face and walked away. I called him back over to me and asked the question again. "What about E? Isn't she your girlfriend?"

He stared at me for a second and replied, "Mom. Listen. I'm going to go down the slide. And when I do, I'm going to figure out which is which. I'm gonna figure out which one I like. Ok?" then he ran off.

Oh if life's mysteries were just that easy to solve!

I guess I'm going to stay confused because it is hot and sunny and I don't want to burn my butt.

My DS has always had a thing for older women as well. When he was 4 he told his 40 something babysitter that he was going to marry her, he had already discussed it with her husband who said it was ok with him. He had even decided that I would buy her a ring...

Oh gotta see if Belle or Xena can take the dogs out after work. I need to go to the park!

No kidding eh? Wish it was that easy. Well...Guess it is when you're 4.

Sounds like a lot more fun than OLD.

Wait, but what did he decide?

No wonder I can't seem to make a decision anymore. I haven't been down a slide in years.

Wait, but what did he decide?
He got a little sidetracked when we found a creek to swim in.

This morning I sat him down and said I didn't want to hurt his feelings but I thought he should know, H is kinds someone else's girl. He looked me dead in the eyes and said, "Who? Uncle's?"

He sat there for a minute then said, "Well...that's ok. H can still be my friend. And if something happens to E and she doesn't wanna be my girl, I'll find someone new."

I love that kid.

That is awesome Aub - Please tell me you are recording or writing this stuff down. He won't believe it when he's older.

My son like the teenage girls when he was a little guy. He even invited a couple to birthday parties, some were sweet enough to attend.

He is 16 now, and he plays the field, gets a girl for a month or two, and moves on. He is handsome as heck, and tall and thin, so he has pretty much can have whoever he likes.

Thankfully none of our kids have ever been overly interested in having a "girlfriend" or "boyfriend" of any age. I hope they take a ride down the slide for other reasons and don't have a crush for a VERY long time

Your Ds4 is a lot deeper than my Ds6. This morning when I dropped them off at daycare I parked behind their Super Duty pickup. He noticed that for the first time, started giggling and said doodie, why does it say doodie on that truck? I said that's because it's a Ford son

(the last part isn't true, but it is funny to the right people )

slight t/j My 3-year-old GD hailed her father this a.m. with , "Hey, Mr. Dude!"

The stuff kids say is worth keeping--if only to use against them years later!

I called QS and told him. I could almost hear his eyes rolling in his head.
