What Did You Just Say?

I used my Mom-Bionic-Hearing the other day to find out (by way of pretending to bake in the kitchen while the girls were eating at the dining table) that my oldest has decided to have a boyfriend. Hmmm...

This boyfriend is her best friends brother, he's also 12. Hmmm...

The rules have changed. (The phone conversation will go like this now, "Hello Ann, can my brother and I come over and play?" Me: 'You, yes. Your brother, NO!').

I've talked to my daughter about what she thinks having a boyfriend means, what she's expecting from this change in status. Her description sounded tame to me, pretty much hanging out like they've always done. So, of course I say, 'Why do you have to use the term "boyfriend/girlfriend"?' Her enlightened answer? "I dunno".

Time to up my game. I wonder if Martha Stewart has a spy gear line?

  1. Ever wonder what you did with that old baby monitor that used to be such a life saver with the infant? Just sayin' . . .

    (And yes, mine is only 8 months old, but I will be keeping the monitor for future use, even if said use is 13 years in the future).

  4. Just order one of those things they advertise on TV you know the one where the nosey old neighbor listens in on the women's conversations. Oh wait I have to go I'm getting a signal on my Miracle Ear, i think the cashier at Target is talking about me again.

  5. I'm so glad Tara's "boyfriend" is an online friend who lives in NY.... however, they were talking on Skype until 12:30am (this morning....) what can I say, the girl is a night owl like her mom. I keep my ears open too...

  6. Oh my gosh. I'm glad that my eldest girl is still at the "So-and-so likes me but I'm to young to have a boyfriend" stage....I do not envy you. Keep a shotgun loaded. ;-)

  7. Love your response to the caller.

    Hilarious. And frightening.

    Yes on the spy gear.

  8. Oh Dear. Those stuffed animals with the nanny cam in them comes to mind. I'm sure you can find some vintage decor to revamp and equip with nanny cams in every room of the house as well as a purse for her. ;D

  9. Nooooo! Say it isn't so - too scary. I better start searching a little harder for that grown inhibiting hormone.
