When I was a young girl...

OK. So that wasn't actually that long ago..but I AM starting to feel old! I'm finding grey hairs (which might have had something to do with why I got highlights & bangs..to up my 'cool' factor!) & my eyes are looking tired all. the. time. (might have something to do with working night shifts & a baby..)

ANYWHO.

Right.

So.

When I was younger, and out & about having fun & dating..I never gave much thought to the fact that all these boys I liked to flirt with were some woman's son. Then I had Aiden & now EVERYONE is SOMEONE's baby. It's true. It really is. But, I'm really only particularly concerned with MY little baby boy. See, I remember how I was when I was dating...and I swear if some girl is mean to my little boy...!!!!!

OK, I know that I can't be that crazy mom. I just can't go out & egg a girl's car if she breaks my son's heart. But I'll sure want to! And I'll have a hard time not actually doing it! But I won't.

However, I did have this genius epiphany the other night about what I CAN do when it comes to Aiden dating. See, during highschool, there were multiple occasions where, instead of going out to a pricey restaraunt for a date/dance, my friends & I (with a lot of assistance from our mother's) would make a nice dinner at home. It was great! Yummy food, cute decorations, waaaay cheaper! I always was so greatful to my mom for helping me out with this. She really was (and still is) the greatest mommy ever! So, I want to be that great mommy, too. And come Aiden's first dance I'll offer to make dinner. And you know what I'm going to make? The exact same dinner I made for Jeff and I the other night:

Garlic sauteed chicken cutlets with broccoli & blue cheese sauce!

Sounds delicious, right?

It is!

Know what else it is?

Super Stinky!!

Yup! Bad breath will reign SUPREME! There will be NO kissing!

In fact, they won't even want to hold hands...

Case in point: after eating this meal Jeff informed me that it was quite tasty. But that I would not be coming within a few feet of him for the rest of the night. And he was right :)

Mommy wins!

Jumping the gun a little?? Just kidding, this is sooooo something I would do. In fact, I write down ideas I have for like 20 years from now, so that I don't forget them. I think is absolutely adorable how involved you want to be in Aiden's life forever, and how you'll be protective of his heart. :)

Good thinking! You know our little boys are going to be heartbreakers but if anyone breaks their heart... you and I will go after them! Let's get together again soon! I miss you guys!

I'm not a mommy yet but I definitely share this (weird) feeling! We see things from different lenses at different stages of our lives. I WAS stupid/ selfish/ ignorant/...

Glad that we all have become better men :)
