Love it

He turned 17 on Thursday and Friday night he had some friends over.  He told me that his girlfriend was coming over for a few hours.  All the guys were going to stay and play video games all nite.  Well, every year that's what we've done...had friends for a birthday sleepover.

I stayed in my room watching TV and surfing the internet until I fell asleep.


Well, I have to admit that the second thing I do in the morning is grab the ol' laptop.  The first is stumble to the kitchen for the all-important hot cup of coffee.  Yawn..   Stretch..  Good morning Facebook News Feed.  WHAT?

Young Love.

That picture was taken on my couch.  And then there is feed after feed of  “You're so awesome" and "I love you" and worse.

I was still awake when he took the little girl home.  So I walked thru the house seeing which miscellaneous boys had stayed all night.

He was still asleep, so I sent him a reprimand via Facebook.

Me:  Thanks a lot for all the sexy pics this morning. NOT what I wanted to see this morning...btw...I googled ...(insert stupid website that was referred to here)... and that is just weird and creepy. You know who all can see this stuff, right? I have to deal with Momma and Jeff and Tony and God knows who else might judge ME because of it. Anyways...I can see you‘re in love and I respect that but come on...

Him:  I'm sorry mom..

Me:  Awwww. I loves u!

Him:  I love you too.. We'll take a more appropriate picture when we can**

Me:  It’s not about the picture. It was about that followed by a whole lot of lovey-dovey poo. It just hit me the wrong way because it looks like she’s just wearing a bra and besides, her hair looks greasy. I don’t like it. I’m not saying I don’t like her. She has a real cute face and body, but she looks dirty to me. It seems like she has a cute personality and I like the way you look at her. If she breaks your heart, I’m going to hurt her. I love you!

Him:  Don’t worry mom, I’m sure I’ll be fine, no matter what happens :P

Me: Fine or better?

Him:  I can’t see the future, yet

Me:  Oh yeah, lol.

**Sarcasm noted


Perhaps, you think I sound harsh in my criticism of the girl.  I agree.  But I've always been one to call it like I see it.

I know he'll be fine.  I was.  At that age I fell in love with his Daddy.  It was an amazing time in my life.  The time when you don't care that you don't know the future.  You're just living it.

I could go on and on about how the choices you make affect who you are in your heart of hearts for the rest of your life.  About growing pains, heartache...

But I won't.  Not right now. I have to pee.

Love it
