Okay so lastnight my best friends daughter had a pool party. Boys girls you know the entire sha-bang. I was there with my girls. Here is the conversation that took place with and I after we got home.
Maddison: Mom I had a good time tonight
Mom: Good, it was fun. I enjoyed myself.
Maddison: Mom how old do I have to be to date?
Maddison: MOM! I will be a junior in high school I cant wait that long.
Mom: Well I am sorry but you asked. Why are we having this conversation you are only 10. and in the 6th grade.
Maddison: Mom I am in middle school and everyone has a boyfriend.
Mom: But you say boys are yuck.
Maddison: Well Mom I am looking at life a different way now. Tonight ______ was looking HOT! (okay yes I am about to die as her mother)
Mom: HOT! You mean like meat in a oven?
Maddison: Mom come on this aint the 60s like when you were young. ( I am thinking at this point I beg your pardon. I was born in 77)
Mom: Well it is bed time and we aren't dating tonight so lets say our prayers and go to bed.
Maddison: Lord please help my mom see I am mature. _______ was looking hot tonight. You created him that way. Lord did you create him for me? Jesus I don't ever want to put anyone before you but I would like a boyfriend here on earth. God do you think you could tell my mom that for me........
As A Mother I was laughing crying and hopeing I had a "RIGHT" Answer.... Maybe I should be the one praying.... I couldn't actually believe what I had heard..... BUT I was grateful she would talk to me like she did, AND TOTALLY excited she would talk to Jesus about it!!!
What a journey this thing we call life.
