A thought for Thursday!!!

Yesterday after school and before church I took Astrud and her "friend" Kyle to eat mexican food. Now this is all new for us, she had a "boyfriend" in 7th grade but they never talked, you know how it works right???? And up until this point she has been pretty content just being in love with The Jonas Brothers!!!! But now she has this friend named Kyle and he is 15 although he is in 10th grade. They would like to go to a movie,(us taking them of course), but our rule is that we have to meet the parents first. So we are off to a good start right??? Well the poor boy was scared to death as he was getting in my car and at this point he does not even know that her father, and two of her brothers are just scheming to scare him to death. I think it was Christopher that said he has a knife and a shovel so he can cut him up and then bury him,something like that and Steven told her online last night that he was probably a freak and that she needed to remind him that he was a soldier with really big guns, and I won't even repeat what her papa has said, isn't that just awlful and these people are christians, pretty scary huh!!!! They are actually just joking about those things but they are very protective of their baby sister and daughter. I must say that he was a really sweet boy, and was very polite and really tried to say all the right things to impress the mom, I just had to laugh to myself, because I myself was a teenager at one time and I know how teenage boys are but let's just hope that he is what he says he is. When Astrud hugged me at church she whispered in my ear, "Do you like him Mom?", I thought that was sweet but so "not" like Astrud so I am gonna put my big girl panties on , strap my seat belt on tight and get ready for this ride, I had to let go of two boys this summer because they got married, I am just not ready for this yet but I don't have a choice. Her big sister Chas needs to put on her big girl panties too, because she had a fit last night saying I am not ready for this, well you better get that way cause it is happening!!!! God help us!!!!

oh my gosh.. I remember those days. (and I hope I remember them when Maddy is that age too.. LOL) My Sarah only had one high school boyfriend and they dated for 1.5 years. She broke his poor little heart by breaking up just before they left for college. (they are both at the same college btw) She just didn't think she needed the hassles of a relationship and school. (smart girl) She is a junior in college now at the ripe old age of 19 and has only had one 6 month "relationship" if you could call it that.
Sounds like you and your girl Astrud have the same great relationship that Sarah and I had. Keeps those lines of communication open at all time. As I always told Sarah, I may not like what I hear and I may not always like what you're doing but I will always/ ALWAYS love you!

TEENAGE BOYS!!!!!!!!! I'll have one soon enough! Sounds like you two have a great relationship, just keep the lines of communication open and honest and let him meet the big brothers and dad so he always walks a straight line and has a little fear in him.
