Cute Kid Story  
We're wrapping up Holy Week over here, and for Good Friday, our pastor called for a churchwide fast for Good Friday from sunup to sundown. It wasn't mandatory or anything, but Nolan and I chose to participate. After sundown, however, we SPRINTED from the house to get takeout from Pei Wei.

I took Ethan with me since AJ had already crashed hard at 7:30 (and he made a big deal out of asking if he could stay up as late as he wanted, the cutie) and instead of singing along with the radio like we do when both of the boys are in the car, I flipped it off and started talking to my son. We had a great talk about his teachers and school, friends and so forth, and then, on a lark, I asked him if he had a girlfriend.

Ethan. No.

Me. No?

Ethan. Nope.

Me. Do any of your friends have girlfriends?

Ethan. Yeah, all of them do.

Me. Really.

Ethan. (As if this is unbelievable) Yeah!

Me. Is there anybody you like?

Ethan. Yeah. Lauren.

Me. Does she like you?

Ethan. Nah.

Me. Why not? You're cute! You're adorable!

Ethan. I know!

All I can say is that I'm SO glad that all of those girls in the 4th grade are idiots, and my kid has too much hubris to be bothered by it all. Praise GOD.

He is totally cute and adorable.

Also, I had all the best conversations with my parents (and now with my niece) in the car. Great place to check in because there's nowhere to run. Muahahaha!

It really is a good place. And even better when it's just one on one. When both the boys are together, they clam up like no one's business.

4th grade huh? Wow they grow fast. And Ethan is sooo darn cute that I want to pinch his cheeks. :)

I know. Stupid 4th grade girls are STUPID. And I'm thrilled. When they do figure out what a cutie he is, I'm in trouble.

Aww! Haha, I bet you're verrrrrrrrry glad they haven't taken notice of him yet! :P

*g* He's going to be dangerous when the girls start paying attention.

Yeah, he is.

Though I wouldn't mind if that waited for five years or thirty, or whatever.

Your kid is so cute and far more dangerous looking than my 6th grade son (who still doesn't care about girls yet). He is adorable!

The car is the best place to talk. I frequently do with my eldest on the ride home from math school -- his brothers are in bed by then and we get uninterrupted time alone.

I think Ethan only cares because all his friends do. I'm not saying that's good, only that it doesn't rule his life, thank God. He's totally happy playing outside and smacking down bad guys on a video game, right now.

They totally will. Though I'm not ready for any regret, yet. ;)

Gosh, I love Ethan. What a good, good kid.

p.s. Rescue me from my inlaws, please? I just want to be in LONDON! (And, yes, it'd be a whole lot cooler if you were coming).
Carrie Leigh: fairie kisscarrie_leigh on April 4th, 2010 01:45 am (UTC)
He better stay a good kid, is all I have to say.

And we're heading over to the in-laws tomorrow, too. I'm making mint oreo truffles and apple dumplings.

Happy Easter!
