Conversation and Lesson Taught...

Last night 'the teenager" was telling Ryan and I about one of the stories on the reading TAKS test he took yesterday, and then said ....

Austin: "Mom, is it wrong to like 4 girls at the same time."

Me: "Austin, you're young and you're just trying to figure out what you like, so no, it's not wrong. Now, you cannot be a boyfriend to all of them at the same time."

Austin: "I know that, but some people at school say that's using someone."

Me: "Welcome to middle school."

Austin: "There's so much drama, Mom. You wouldn't believe it!" (Little does he know!)

Me: "Welcome to middle school."

Austin: "It's fun though."

My darling boy is about to embark upon his middle school journey next year. It will be interesting to see how he handles it. So far, he hasn't much noticed that there are even girls in his class!
