So far, So good

I've been really good this week, so far. I've walked and ate only healthy foods. I've drank all my water too, but that's been pretty easy since temps have been close to 90 degrees each day. It's when it cools off that I just can't seem to reach for the water. I will weigh in on Saturday morning. I'm hoping (and praying) for a good little drop on the scale. I'll fill you in then and let you know what it shows.

Well, school is almost out for my kids. Today is their last full day. They are off tomorrow then go back Friday for a measly half an hour to pick up their report cards. I still can't believe that the school year is over already. My daughter will be starting her SOPHOMORE year this fall and my son will be going into 6th grade, his last year of elementary school. Where has the time gone?

Oh, get this. Over the weekend, my daughter (15 years old) asked me when she could start DATING!!!! Immediately my answer was never, but then after calming down I thought about it and wondered when will I be ready to let her date? I didn't have my first real date until I was 18 years old. Do I make her wait that long? I know when I was her age I wanted to date and felt like my parents were treating me like a baby when they wouldn't let me. Do I make her feel the same way? That's just a scary thought for me. She shouldn't even be old enough to like boys. They should still have cooties, as she used to say. When she asked my hubby, he just got a dazed deer in the headlights look on his face and never did answer her. Lots of help he is. I still haven't given her an answer. I wonder how long she'll let me get away with that? Wouldn't it be nice if she never brought up the subject again? Wishful thinking, I know.

i am a 23 year old girl, happily involved with my boyfriend of 4 years. i feel like "dating" at that age, is mostly just hanging out with friends and holding a boy's hand. i never had to ask when i could start dating, because if i wanted to see a boy i just brought him over and we watched tv at home or had dinner at my house. my suggestion is to have your daughter bring the boy she likes over and let them watch movies in the living room or basement, ect.
