Well... it had to happen sometime.
My son will have his 14th birthday this coming Monday.
And next Friday...
He will have his first date!
He asked the girl that he likes to the 8th grade semi-formal. Apparently, he's been thinking about it, and trying to figure out how to ask her for about two weeks. He finally told me about it Wednesday night, and I gave him a couple of pointers.
He had decided to ask her yesterday, and was a little scared when I asked him if he was still going to ask her, as he was leaving for school. Then, turns out that she was gone yesterday.
So, this morning, when I asked him if he was still going to ask her, he had a very firm "yes" as the answer.
He called me when he got home from school, and I could tell right away that he was smiling. "She said yes!" And apparently was smiling the whole time she said it.
And from what I understand, he's one of the few boys who actually asked a girl in person, and not through post-it notes left on lockers... It took guts to just go for it, and I made sure he knew that I was proud of him. :)
I am very happy for him, and at the same time, I'm feeling incredibly old right now...
