It's official......my Husband has lost his lil Fishing buddy and he is taking it harder than I expected.....And just how did he loose his side kick for the last 12 years you ask?.......one word............GIRLS! In lieu of flowers send.... stink bait!
We have been used to "Our Lil Man" being chased by some very determined little girls, and after the first 10 years of "YUCK" then the 11th year of......"She's stalking me!" it is the final few months of his 12th year that it has finally turned into......."woooooo hooooo!" "Yowzaaa!" and "How yoooou doin'?" He is refusing fishing trips, days at the lake, Saturday afternoon Nascar races and such. Now he battles his older Sisters for the phone and recently has lost all "Online" privileges do to one girl in particular.....let's just call her 'I'm gonna hunt you down and rip out your heart if you break my Sons heart'
Apparently this girl has some pretty lenient parents......Last Friday night the phone rang at 11:07 P.M. and of course right away I'm thinking either bad news or one of my Older kids (19 & 22) needed something but... ohhhhh noooooo..... it's 'I'm gonna hunt you down and rip put your heart if you break my Sons heart!' Does she apologize for calling so late? NOOOOO! Does she say anything at all? NOOOOOO! How do I know it's her.......caller ID......So even though I knew I wasn't going to get a response.....I said, "Jimmy isn't allowed phone calls after 9:30 at night, Thank You!" then I hung up on her.
He won't speak about her to anybody but me and that's only after I start prodding......."Any siblings?" No she was adopted and is an only child "How's her grades?" how am I supposed to know that? "What do her parents do for a living? I don't know that either "Do youhave her in any classes at school?" Yes...3 (now he's annoyed with the 20 questions so it's through gritted teeth he answers me lol) "Does she sit by you in any of those classes?" YES! "You don't talk to her instead of listening to your teachers DO YOU!?" NO! MOM! She doesn't talk to me at all during school, only her friends talk to me (Ok but they gab for hours on the phone? and they used to IM for hours too!) lol Look Mom I really don't to talk about this anymore, so I'm going to my room......Where's the cordless phone?"......... I'm afraid I too......have lost my Lil Man.........someone please pass me a tissue.....sniffle sniffle.
This shot was taken last summer on our annual trip to the Northern Woods of Wisconsin.....He never missed a morning of getting up with his Dad (5:00 A.M.) to do some serious fishing only to come home 3 hours later snuggled up in the front of the row boat....sleepy and hungry for breakfast....... Sighhhh.....I feel my Darling Husband will be in mourning for a very...very long time!
