I'm sorry that I've been absent for a couple of weeks. It's just been crazy busy and I have had precious little time. I promise to try and catch up with everyone this weekend. My son just turned 10 about a week ago. He has always had mostly girl friends as opposed to boy friends. For some reason he's just gravitated towards them socially, having more in common with them in many ways. Well one of his girl friends that he has known since kindergarten (they are now in 4th grade) and he have been spending more time together lately. Also, earlier this year a girl in his classs told him she "like liked" him and so they are officially "going out" despite the fact they have never even played together outside of school. Well this other girl friend "R" and he had a coversation in the backseat of my car about whether they wanted to go out and be boyfriend/girlfriend. They agreed, and said they wouldn't tell "F". Manster even said "I don't want to break up with her, I want to "date" you both. They hugged and he kissed. Also at his birthday party I sat behind them at the movies and he put his arm around her. My gosh they are in 4th grade! Is this common? I am completely shocked by this. I'm afraid to overreact and create a paranoia here and make it worse. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I'm so not ready for this. They are waayy too young.
