The Life of A Tween

The telephone was ringing off the hook on Friday evening.

Almost every hour!

Apparently, it was A.R's classmate; he needed help with his Nintendo game.

Mr.O and I are used to quiet and uneventful evenings. Usually, the boys are reading, playing games and listening to music.

We are not accustomed to being inundated with phone calls - especially directed to our eldest son.

Mr. O was flabbergasted. I was amused.

You begin to wonder, what's next? Facebook? School dances? Girls?

Oh no.

A friend of mine poked fun at me, and said I was raising a "heart-throb". I laughed at the notion, it was ridiculous. Not my boy!
Is this a sign of things to come?

You bet.

Welcome to the life of a tween.


  1. Not sure if my last comment reached you though.. The page appeared to be blank after I was done typing..

    Anyway, in case you did not, I was saying, well, it sure looks like a sign of things to come... LOL.. From one stage to another..

    And, hmm, be prepared.. *wink*

    Oh yes, thanks for dropping by and left words in my last post.. as usual, replied it.. *HUG*

  2. Having a toddler and a new baby thinking about having a tween in my home seems crazy! I bet he's going to be a great teen though!

  3. Ha ha another Justin Bieber in the making Melanie ? ;)
    * winks an eye *

    Before you know it, he'll be getting scores
    of phone calls from gals....instead of queries
    on Nintendo games

    I believe it's just a phase that we all
    go through and grow out of.

    I'll be worried if my son has nary a single call and only wants to stick to his parents :) now that's abnormal.

  4. I love my tween:) He loves socializing, works hard, still talks - and his friends talk to us, too. That's nice:)
