so, what would Sunday afternoon dinner be without cake?
okay, so that's the play... moving on to the Date.
Yes indeed, Shayne has a girlfriend, who also spent the afternoon with us. It was nice. She is sweet, mannerly and cute as a button. (I'm sure this is not a teen approved description; but, appropriate for someone my age. Sigh, I am told that I am 10 years older than her momma, flashback to Elijah's Kindergarten orientation a few months ago- now I am an older parent of my teenager too. How did this happen? I must start working out and researching botox- ha!
Back to topic-
She came for dinner and can I say she loved my BBQ chicken (scoring points). She stayed and went to youth group with Shayne. I like her. Shayne really likes her.
I have been forbidden to post pictures- sorry Meemaw!
Looks like I'm going to have to practice what I preach, and learn to share- Really?
I am open to advice from all you moms of teenage boys who have survived, because I know in my heart that this is the one more step in the process of letting go. Regardless of what happens, I am figuring out that I can no longer control or protect him in the way I have grown accustomed. This new territory. I am feeling out of sorts!
As "strange" as I am feeling, I have to admit I am enjoying the conversations and the never ending smile that has once again found his face.
Stay tuned for more .... I have a feeling I will have lots of blogging material in the near future.
