I am amazed at how primal it is for little boys to be distracted by a pretty girl. JR was working and I was left with the three boys and Peter’s little buddy. It seemed like a perfect night out for mexican food with four little boys and me.
The entire time all the boys are enamored with two teenage blond girls two tables away. We are talking giggling, whispering, red faces and a “This is the best lunch ever…we get to look at them while we eat!”
They all get up to use the restroom and when they walk back to the table, I have the two girls sitting in our booth! Bahahahaha! Mortified, Avery and Mitchell run back to the bathroom. Peter and his little buddy leap into the booth next to me and bury their faces in the seat while making embarrassed chuckles and squirm. Avery and Mitchell keep calling me from the bathroom asking what they did to her to deserve this. When they finally come back, the girls have returned to their own table and Avery asks, “So did you ask them how old they are?” I answer, “18” and Avery (12 years old) with huge disappointed sigh says, “Crap, I was hoping they were like 14.”
Before you think I scarred them for life, they really did find it very funny. They are pretty shy boys and the girls very sweet and it was fun for them, (mostly me).

What a FUN Mom you are!!!
AWWWW! Fun/crazy? I would have made my mom proud with that stunt for sure. Thanks for reading and liking! It gives me encouragement to continue to show people my “underwear drawer”.
Ahh, a mother who gets a good laugh at her children’s expense. My kind of gal! 😉
I guess that it was that twisted parenting tactic of toughening them up. They survived, and laughed and so I claim….SUCCESS!
Demystifying the process (hint: just go talk to them!). Love it!
I know, right! The girls were so sweet and flattered. I didn’t have a brother that I grew up with or boy cousins around. I was an idiot around the opposite sex. I pushed my now husband in the pool when we were teenagers because I was just awkward…then he asked me out.
Too funny and too cute! They must be mortified 🙂
They were but quickly got over it and found it funny. I hope it helps them be less shy.
