Sugar Bear is 12. Now alot of kids in his grade "date". What that means, I truly don't know. All I know is that any 12 yr olds of mine do not date. I told Sugar Bear to see me when he was 16. Do I think he won't date till 16 yrs old? Probably not, but he's a fierce negotiator so I like to start with plenty of wiggle room.
Although girls seem to text him constantly he doesn't seem ready for girls yet anyway. The girls on the other hand, are waaaaay ready. Of the gazillion girls that text him there's this one girl....Lexi. She's super cool because she plays Black Ops, which apparently if you're out to land a 12 yr old boy, that's more attractive than just about anything. At least Evan thinks so.
Anyway, this girl is constantly calling him, texting him, whatevering him, yet she is "dating" his friend Bobby. Booo for Evan. :( Mind you, she's dating Bobby, but constantly wants to play xbox360 with Evan and not with Bobby. Hmmmm
The other day I get home after work, and I'm trudging up my porch stairs without looking where I'm going and trip on this huge rock that's smack in the middle of my stairs. Wtf!
I pick up the huge rock to toss it away and on it written in magic marker is "Lexi was here" and the date. Hmmmm......I haven't met this girl yet, but maybe it's time.
I toss the rock, go in the house and tell Evan that Lexi tried to kill me. :) When I explained what she did, a HUGE smile crosses his face and he says "She left me a stone age text!" LOL Well that she did, but regardless I tell him I want to meet her and he should invite her over to play video games.
"No way!!!!!!!" he yells
"She obviously wants to come over, since she was here with her stone age text and I want to meet her."
"I'll be nice. All your friends love me, right?"
"Mom, that's because you feed them and hit them!"
"I do not hit them.....except Shane." (shane is huge and can take it, plus he loves it)
"You shoot them with nerf guns - that's like hitting them!"
Whatevah! Even though I promised not to hit her, he hasn't invited her over yet. Not in person, but this chick gets in through phone calls, texts, facebook, even the frigging xbox. Not that I can blame her. Sugar Bear's a hottie. I have no recent pics here at work, so the one below, which is 2 years old will have to suffice.
Hottie 2 years ago
Yes, he's holding a presidential achievement award which was signed by Barak Obama! But before you get too excited, that was 2 years ago. He just got his report card, which had 4 Cs on it! omfg It also had 4 A's and 2 B's, but still. C's are not bad if that's what you are capable of, but for every C he got there was a comment saying that he's capable of more. He got C's because he'd do his homework but forget to get it checked off, or miss a day of school, not make up the work and get zeros. So even though his tests grades are As, he gets Cs. Grrrrr
He asked me if he was being punished because of this report card and I said no. Shock and relief registered on his face. He can still use his xbox to kill people! I know he works hard and does alot of homework and I told him this, but it's that extra little bit at the end that's missing.
