Crush

"There are THREE more crushes on me today!" he yelled as he climbed into the van.

Hm. I hadn't even heard of the ones previous to these.

"So who has these crushes on you and how do you know?" I asked as lightheartedly as I could.

"Well, Mom, they TELL me! Like Lauren*, for instance, passed me a note that said "Love, secretly". I guess that wasn't too secret though. And Yvonne* came right up to me and said, "I like you. Right up to me!!!!" he replied.

"Well what do you think of it all?" asked Dr. Phil/Mom.

"It's sort of weird." Too funny. Let's ask him again in about 8 years.

"And how do you respond when they say those things?" (trying to keep the smile from my voice, honestly, I really, really want to know!)

"I just pretend to pass out and then I run away."

What else is an 8 year old boy supposed to do?

"Oh. So how do they react?" (Mom is so nosy!)

"They just go their own way giggling."

Then he switched the subject.

I suppose I should have taken the high road and mentioned that it was very flattering for these girls to tell him how much they like him. Or that he should be thankful that he's making such a good impression. That I'm proud of him that he's good with his peers and obviously very likeable and fun to be around. It's actually quite sweet and cute.

But I didn't, because my mama bear instincts just kicked in.

What? My boy??? Back off!!! (Well, not really, but I wasn't expecting this stuff for at least another few years. )

Wonder if this is why the Boy loves Archie's new song so much (it is really a sweet song).

Here's another sweet, driving song...


At least we haven't yet reached the angst of Garbage...



Oy.

*names changed to protect the innocent, and yes, they really still are ... and very cute :)

I love that he's telling you about it. Such a cutie!

I usually pass out straight afterwards...

Melissa said...

I know, I'm not ready for this either. My oldest is 11 and really starting in on all of that and I just want to SCREAM! I'm not ready for him to have "urges", ya know?

Miss said...

OMG funny! But um, is this what I have to look forward to? Yikes.

gmcountrymama said...

He is one in a million that boy of yours! LOL!

My 9 year old told me that two classmates had been going out, but then they broke up because the girl in question saw him eating a sandwich out of the garbage can and was horrified and the boy in question found out that they had been going out and was horrified. Such is the end of a great and tragic love.

Kat said...

I LOVE Garbage!!!!

Very cute. :) I told my Grandma that I wasn't really interested in boys until 7th or 8th grade, and she said, "Really? I was always interested in boys!" HA!

It does start early. Too funny. He is handling it well though.

Happy2bme said...

I think its sweet that he's telling you. Very funny/cute post.

I wouldn't be ready for all the girl stuff either!


We moved into our house 4 years ago when our neighbors boys were like 8 and 12. Now the oldest one drives and has a girlfriend and the youngest one has a little posse (they are awesome kids!) he hangs with and I find myself being over-protective of them and not ready to see the boys grow up.

Can you imagine the nutcase I will be with my own kids?

Karen said...

I know exactly what you mean, and my daughter is 13! But it's still not any easier when she comes home and says "3 boys asked me out today."

Kami said...

NO! That means this may all be happening to me in...ACK only a year!!!!!

*passes out cold*

bec said...

Gaaaak!! Already! lol. I could really envision L having that exact reaction of pretending to pass out. Pretty neat he tells you about it. You know my ds doesn't tell me anything. He always 'forgets' about what happened during the day. Maybe it's better that way--don't think I'm ready to handle the crushes stage.

Don Mills Diva said...

OMG - pretending to pass out is what I always do when I get unwanted attention too!

OHmommy said...

Oh man, oh man... what a funny kid. So sweet Karen!
