Dating 101

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Chris & I took Kyle and his little girlfriend(I say little cause she is like a size zero....gag!!!!)to ice skate on Saturday and let me tell you my son is in noway shape or form ready to set out into the "dating world".

First off, is it technically considered a date if your parents drive you?

Is it considered a date if your mom uses a coupon for your girlfriend to skate for free?....you guys know I WOULD NEVER DO THAT....uh, yep I did!

Is it a date if your parents give you the money to buy lunch while there and win her a prize out of "the claw machine"?

Is is a date if your mom cooks the dinner?

Is is really a date if your parents play a game with the two of you after dinner?

Is it a date if you go off and leave your girlfriend(who has never been ice skating before) and take off at Mock 10 and speed off...yes, my wonderful son did this and I had to yell at him to come back to get her!!!! His daddy needs to give him a looooong lesson!

....ummmm...lets see...I would have to answer a BIG fat NO to all the questions above!

And then when we were home and getting ready to say the blessing over the dinner I had made(not Kyle)and we all went to hold hands(cause the 3 of always hold hands with each other when we pray at meals)and Kyle (who is sitting right next to Morgan by the way) totally bypasses her hand and reaches for mine!!!!

Yep, he sure did, poor kid!

...and thats when Chris & I lost all composure and cracked up laughing...it was priceless!!!

But poor Morgan, she hung in like a trooper. She survived the ride to & from skating with us, learned to skate with little help from Kyle, held my hand during the blessing(instead of Kyles) and lost to Chris & I during our games of Guesstures.

Folks, let me tell ya, if she can put up with Kyle as long as she has(even with his burps and farts)....she may be a keeper bless her heart!

Jenna said...

Oh My gosh I laughed out loud through this whole post!! This is so cute, I remember when I was that age and wouldn't hold a boys hand...bless his heart, he's such a boy!

Jules said...

What a cute story. I love that he went to hold your hand instead of hers. That would actually have made my heart melt.

Kristi said...

I was laughing out loud through that whole story. I do not look forward to those days at all!! I love that he grabbed your hand though.
Thank you so much for the award I appreciate it so much!! Thanks for being such a great bloggy friend!

That is hysterical. That's ok, my girls call it "dating" when they haven't even been out with the guy. They're just going together. How do you go together if you never go anywhere? Of course my oldest is dating now, but she was the same too.

MissJody said...

Uggghh the dating world blahh! You son sounds like the older version of my boys, I pitty the girls who will have to put up with them. Although that "date" sounds much like some of the Hubs and mine bahaha.

Thanks for stopping by & yes I will overlook the monogram decal, but only if my Hubs breaks down and lets me get one :)
