We're preoccupied with girls these days, and I'm not just talking about BGB.
Jonas has turned a corner in his young life. Girls, and one in particular, are front and centre on his radar lately. So much so that gone are the days of denial of reality, and he matter of factly told us that he's in love. Oiy. I'm not sure I'm ready for this!
She and they are a topic of conversation during breakfast, toothbrushing, bath time, dinner time, while driving and walking, even playing with Hotwheels, Lego or video games. His mind seems to be constantly mulling over the mulititude of questions he has about her and them. Every conversarion, no matter the topic, seems to come back to this most important issue. It catches me off-guard sometimes.
His primary concern at the moment seems to be how to get his crush to notice and fall in love with him. He wants to shave and wear deodarant, he's showering every day, and it's little wonder that our washing machine died - he's been trying on several outfits in the mornings and changing his clothes a couple of times a day. On the upside, it's amazing how much easier it is to get a nine year old to look clean and presentable when he's trying to impress a girl.
