Fathers lock up your daughters, I have one heck of a ladies man on my hands. I am not kidding you either. Junior is a girl loving hound! At a time in life when most boys equate girls with walking cootie factories, my son is finding a reason to be around them. Do I see this as a bad thing? Well, yes and no. Yes it is bad because I want him to be accepted by his other boy peers and not seen as a cootie magnet. No, because he is actually treating these girls with respect and admiration.
Yesterday morning, I was leaving the nurses office, which is where my kids and I part ways in the morning. I have to be on hand to watch them give their glucometers to the nurse and to see her lock them up. (Stupid district rules.) My two munchkins had already taken off out to the waiting area. As I was leaving, I looked around to see where Morgan and Junior were. I never saw Morgan, but I did catch sight of Junior. He was getting up from the group of boys he was seated with and skipped over to sit with a group of girls. Skipped! With a twinkle in his eye no less! I was entertained with the idea that he was having crushes on girls, I mean, at one of his old school, girls had crushes on him all the time. I left the school chuckling to myself and told HHH about it that night. HHH said, "He sounds like me when I was a kid." Uh-Oh!
Cut to this morning. I separate from my young in the nurses office like usual and when I get outside to leave, I look again. THIS time, Junior has bypassed the circle of boys sitting on the concrete and is plopping down into a group of no less than 10 girls! This may be more serious than I thought! When I had asked him the night before if he had any girlfriends he proudly spouted, "Oh yes, mommy! I have 5!!". I thought he was joking, but now I am wondering. Damn HHH and his family's over active hormones! I am gonna have to keep that boy on a short leash!
So consider this a warning now, dear readers. Junior is on the prowl and those dimples are hard to resist. Watch out!
