I Guess He Couldn't Wait

W. just couldn't or wouldn't wait until 5th grade. He came home from school, two days ago, and informed me that he now has a girlfriend. Yes, I honestly know he is too young to have a girlfriend. I've told him that. But if you knew my W., you'd know that having a girlfriend is no different than having a girl that is a friend. Okay, except for the making out part, but I'm thinking he's all talk.

The girl he is now referring to as "his girlfriend" is just that. A girl. A friend. A girlfriend. They've been very close friends since kindergarten. I guess all of this talk of wanting a girlfriend made him think, "Hey! What about M.?!" Yea, that's the ticket.

VoilĂ ! Instant girlfriend and he didn't even need to add water.

I asked him if he chose M. because he just wants to say he has a girlfriend or if he really likes her that much.

"Well, mom," he begins, trying to sound all growed-up and mature, "We've been friends, like forever, so we just finally got here."

Ahhhhh....now I get it, it was in the stars, you know destiny.

M.'s birthday was yesterday and for a class treat she brought in butterfly shaped cookies. Upon arriving home, W. said, "R. and T., my girlfriend had two cookies left over and my girlfriend was nice enough to send them home for you. Wasn't that nice of my girlfriend?"

The poor girl doesn't even have a name anymore.

W.'s birthday is today. Their birthdays are only a day a part. How absolutely romantic, though a bit scary as they are both Gemini. I'm not sure about M., but W. - total Gemini.

Happy Birthday, my love!! You have finally hit the double-digits! I guess that's why you felt the need to hook up. Because we all know that 10 is the new 16.

Hmmm...I wonder if your girlfriend will try to give you a birthday smooch.

You so know I'll be asking!

Happy Birthday to your not so little honey - and yes 10 IS the new 16 - make sure to give him a big hug, before his girlfriend(s) start stepping in and taking all the sugar!
