Precocious

You read the title and you immediately might have thought of Mozart, Jesus, Picasso, etc. Nope, it is about Alexis and her precociousness that is not welcomed.

Let me set the stage. I have two daughters: 5.5 years old and 5.5 month old and I've been enjoying being the only male in the household (other than the dog ... who is an it :-)) until the other day when my older daughter confessed that she had a boyfriend - Dylan.

Ever since, I've been in complete panic, assessing a range of options from moving back to Romania to becoming and NRA member, buying a dozen Pitbulls, etc. I was not prepared to deal with the boyfriend announcement so for now I might have to get on a SSRI prescription or re-assess my life expectations :-)

Sic transit gloria mundi.

Don't worry. At this age "boyfriend" doesn't mean to them what it means to us (yet).

My 6 year old has already had 3 boyfriends in kindergarten, but they come and go like the seasons at this point.

Unfortunately I'm realizing that a lot of the crap that goes on in High School starts in 1rst grade?!! Clicks, pairing off, jealousy, bullying, have/have-nots, etc.

Time to get ready to do to my kids what my

Father-in-law did to me:
First time my (then girlfriend) took me to her house, it was a moonless night and 99% of the lights in the house were turned off. The 1% light was a single, 25 watt light bulb shining down like a spotlight on my father-in-law ... cleaning his shotgun. (no joke.)

From there we moved from that room to talk with her Mother on the 2nd floor and there were no safe windows I could jump out of! ;)

I still married her 7 years later, and no shotguns were involved.
