Wasn’t prepared for this conversation.

Was. Not. Prepared.

But of course, that is how it always happens… when you least expect it.

On the way to church youth group last night, my son informed me that he was ready for a phone… and a GIRLFRIEND.

Yep. Just like that he BROKE MY HEART. Over a casual conversation in the car.


Truth be told, I kinda knew this day was coming. I was just hoping he would stay in the video game / stinky-boy / why-do-I-need-to-wear-deodorant / girls-are-gross phase for awhile longer.

But no. We’re moving into a new stage of life.
