mothers....you've been warned.

out of the blue....

"Mom, I kissed a girl for the first time. I think we're going to get married someday."

-justin (5.5 yrs. old)


i turned from his view quickly so he wouldn't notice my jaw on the floor.

it was very hard to pry it off.

while keeping my cool, i just said, oh really?
did she like it?

his reply, "i don't think so."


that's one plus i guess.



boy oh boy.

should i tell him that it's protocol to ask the "lucky" girl's parents before proposing?

perhaps i should have lied and told him a bit sooner that only married people kiss!?!

or maybe i should have told him girls have cooties.

better yet, i think i will inform him.....
kissers will be in thinking time....indefinitely!!!!!

...heaven help me!

my oldest 6 almost 7, she has plenty of "boyfriends" since she was three. We told her that the boys she can kiss daddy, grandpas, and uncles. So far so good, she is already planning her wedding to a boy she met in preschool though.

Well, at least you're setting a good enough example that marriage is great and desirable... now just tell him he has to wait until after his mission before any more kisses. Love, MOM

I've informed my kids they can't kiss till 21 and no marriage until 25. So far so good, no kissing. I think they know the other sex has cooties!
