I never in a million years thought I would have 6 children, much less 6 boys! Sometimes, when I stop and really think about it, it freaks me out. When I really stop and think of the responsibility of raising 6 sons, I can feel the panic.
While I was out with some girlfriends this weekend, I was shocked to here them talking about one of my sons being a lady’s man. What? Sanj and I were both quite shy and insecure when it came dealing with the opposite sex. Where did my son get this confidence and absolute delight about girls? (Our brothers)!!!
I was trying to appear all cool about it, yet in reality I felt panic bubbling up. They aren’t even in high school. I will admit, I will the confidence. I always wished that for them. I love that they are secure in themselves or appear to be.
Yet, as I think of it, I am so worried about the fact that they understand that girls have feelings too. I want them to understand that it isn’t a game. Dating is for older people… as it can hurt feelings.
Sigh. Most days I take it one day at a time. I love checking things off my list. There is something so wonderful about
crossing it off when it is accomplished!
Monday: The already late dragonfly project is due. It is pet day and so Bella is needed in Zach’s class. This means she needs a bath, BADLY! Guitar is today after school. Later tonight there is a meeting about the Golf Fundraiser that we are doing this weekend. This means a late night since the meeting doesn’t begin till 8:30 pm. OH… Jordan needs muffins for the bake sale tomorrow.
Tuesday: My mom has a hearing test booked with a cute audiologist in the morning. I will likely go into the office and work the morning. My mom is teaching an Indian cooking class to Jordan’s class. I will likely go in and help her. Sanj has guitar. The boys have golf. It is a late night.
Wednesday: Off on a field trip with Max to Sammy’s high school. Maybe this could be fun… spying on my teen! lol
The remainder of the week is full of a mismatch of errands. I am sure I will be there one running around doing all the last minute things such as getting the prize packs etc. together. Then I have this project of renovating the primary bathrooms at the boys school. I am trying to think of creative ways to get funds together before flat out asking for it from the usual suspects.
Father’s Day is this weekend too. Usually I make ribs for the males in the house. We will see. Oh, I picked up one of those pools you see in all the backyards that can’t afford a real one… I am so excited for the boys. It is just a great way to cool off immediately.
Hey … if you are looking for a great Father’s Day gift… ask me about the Golf Tournament.
By the way, how hard is it to get a hole in one? We have a prize of free tuition for a year. I am really needing that! Maybe I should try. Maybe I would have beginner’s luck!
