And then there were three....my son's first love +1

This not a mommy-blog, HOWEVER, since I am a mom and I do have kids, I feel the need to share this little tidbit. Only because it's one of those things I'll get to keep in the vault and SLING-SHOT back to my son on his wedding day. Or prom night.  One of those.

My 13-year old son had his first date this past weekend.  Yeah. I said it. He "got" a new girlfriend on Friday. How did he "get" her? I guess he met her on facebook or something and they decided to meet up at a skating rink. Hold on....FUCK ME. Okay, now that I'm thinking about it, this is some creepish, pedophile shit, potentially.  DAMMIT! OMG, I fail at motherhood. I promise, it didn't even occur to me until right this second that this was a BAD idea all the way around. Except that it turned out fine. But it COULD have been a horrible kidnapping, arse-fucking situation. *sigh* I need lessons or an intervention or some medical assistance...

Anyway, my son goes to the roller skating rink a couple of Fridays per month when his grades are good and his attitude isn't making me feel murderous. Last Friday, he says he's going to meet up with his girlfriend. Um, "what girlfriend" is what I'm thinking, but....whatever. Here's the funny part - he got there at 7pm but he says he was texting her until 945pm and then he finally met her. He saw a cute girl fall down on her skates, so he went over to help her. She looked up and said, "are you Kendall?" And that's the first time he met her face to face.

This technology age is so damn weird. But he's all smitten and it's really kind of cute. Also, it's working out really well for me. If he wants his phone or he wants to go out, he gets to do extra chores. CHA-CHING.

Sunday, they have a movie date *insert giggles and jeers* Oh, but here's the very best part...her mom is going to accompany them. Oh how I LOVE this! The plan was, the mom would go see a different movie in the same facility. I'm not sure what changed her mind, but she ended up sitting two rows behind, watching the same movie as the kidlets. How awesome is that? My son's first date and the girl's mom horns in on it.

I am SO gonna invite myself to their next date :D
