Girl talk with my eleven year old

Me- “So, how many boyfriends do you have?”

Angel (rolling her eyes)- “Mama!  I already told you boys only like girls that other girls think are ugly.  Boys are stupid.  My girlfriends and I just don’t get it.”

Me (grinning)- “O.k.”

Angel (blushing pink)- “There is this one boy that told me he likes me.”

Me- “I think he is the only boy in fifth grade that is brave enough to admit that he likes you.”

Angel- “Mama!  He’s new to our school.  Besides.  He already has a little mustache!  That is sooooooo gross!

I think it’s cute how she always starts her sentences with a Mama! thrust out of her mouth when she must explain something to her silly and uncool mother. 


Maybe, Angel would be more impressed with her admiror if his facial hair were a wee bit more spectacular.

Maybe, if he shot for a look more like the bearded men you will find in the links below!

    My girl is also eleven.

    I know she has a “boyfriend” – but I’m not supposed to know!

    I don’t like the idea, but I guess I should brace myself…

    My Angel has had “crushes” but never a boyfriend. I don’t know what I’ll do when she does!
