Parental Edition: Stop growing up so fast!
The girls were taking a bath a few days ago and Anabella announces to me that Scarlett has a boyfriend. Scarlett, who isn’t even 3 years old yet, has a boyfriend. Ummm, ok.
Anabella: Scarlett’s boyfriend is named Ethan.
Me: Really? Isn’t Scarlett a little young for a boyfriend.
Anabella: No, he is her boyfriend. And he really likes vegetables.
Me: (in my head) WTF? Am I really talking boyfriends with a 5 and a 2 year old??!?!
And the subject was dropped.
Until last night, when Scarlett grabs our home phone and brings it to me. “I want to call Ethan.”
WTF? I know kids grow up fast these days and all that crap, but who is teaching my TWO YEAR OLD that she has a boyfriend? I mean, it’s super cute when Scarlett starts talking about Ethan as soon as we get close to school — BUT it makes me feel like I now have a VERY VERY VERY long road ahead of me with two girls.
How much boy drama am I in for over the next 15 years or so??
Wow. I’m thinking lots and lots of drama. And, capping it at 15 years may be optimistic.
Ooh!! That does not sound good at all. I agree with Kristy that 15 years is really optimistic!
That’s so cute. Sounds like a nice boy!
That’s great! Funny thing is… Emily (the younger one) is the boy crazy one out of my nieces!! Every boy is her boyfriend!
In some cultures the parents would have already arranged their children’s marriages at Scarlet’s age.
So I introduced myself to Ethan’s mom at school this week — since we are clearly going to be in-laws. I explained how Scarlett talks non-stop about her son … I’m sure she thinks we are all crazy.
Brian – not cool! 😉

Hi there, i’ve just book marked this particular article on my twitter account and received a whole lot of impressive replies! I believe you are genuinely doing a excellent job with your blog. I have one particular question though, this is a blogengine weblog right?
You lost me, friend. I mean, I imagine I get what youre stating. I have an understanding of what you are saying, but you just appear to have forgotten that you can find some other individuals within the world who look at this issue for what it really is and may perhaps not agree with you. You may perhaps be turning away many of people who might have been lovers of your web site.
