Do 9 year old boys flirt? I think mine does. The other day when I was attending Justin's lacrosse game I was annoyed by this blonde boy who would not stop talking. Seriously, he was saying the stupidest things and just wouldn't stop. As I was getting increasingly annoyed I realized that this boy was really only being super obnoxious when he was around the 16-17 year old girl referee. He was saying things that didn't make sense and laughing at himself and just overall making a complete fool of himself. As I watched it became clear he was actually flirting with her or I guess a 9 yr. olds version of flirting. A guess the process goes something like this... hitting in kindergarten, kissing in 1st and 2nd grade, and now we have graduated to making a complete idiot of yourself. This boy was mine, my sweet really funny, disobedient at times boy! When did he get old enough to do things like flirt, especially with a girl twice his age? Where did my baby go?
So the other day I send Sadie, my almost 3 year old, into the bathroom so go potty. She comes right back out and says to me, "Mom, I can't go right now because Miss Pop is in there." I am lying on the couch and really have no intention of getting up, my sweet husband is close by so I ask him to go figure out what Sadie means and take her to the potty. They both go in the bathroom and then both come out. Brian then says to Sadie, "When Miss Pop is done going then you need to go, o.k.?" "O.K.," she replies. So apparently Sadie has an imaginary friend. Funny!
