Conversation Between Me & a Girl with a 'Tude

[Telephone rings]

Me: Hello?

Ms. Moxie: Why did you not answer after I called you back twice?

Me: Who is this?

Ms. Moxie: The girl you were just talking to! [Pause] Ms. Moxie!! [Exasperated]

Me: This is SKB #1's mother. Are you calling to speak with SKB #1?

Ms. Moxie: [Notices her mistake and answers shyly] Um, yes. May I speak to him please?

Me: No. Call back when you can be sweet to my boy. [Click]

Ok, that's not how I handled it. I know Ms. Moxie personally and she's a very sweet girl. Apparently real sweet unless you don't answer her calls anyway.  

But I was too shocked at my son even getting a call from a girl. Then the attitude oozing from the other side of the line was even more shocking. Good Lord, is this a sign of things to come. Are girls going to treat my boys this way? I am NOT ready for this. 

Have I mentioned that my sweet angel is only 9?!

Yes, yes they will! I am warning you now. Girls are a lot more forward then boys. I have had lots of similar experiences and was surprised to learn how much things changed from when I was young. You just wait, more is coming!!

I have a 10 yr-old boy and about a month ago I found a note from one of his girl classmates saying that she would come to see him play baseball if he promised to kiss her!!! I was outraged!!
Then while talking about it with my husband my 4 yr-old little girl said that she wanted to kiss one of her little friends but HE didn't want to. I asked her what did she do and she said... "I kissed him anyway". Girls are A LOT more forward these days!

LOL, too funny. I asked my nephew (age 7) the other day if he had a girlfriend. (Expecting a “Girls yuck” response.) Instead I got a “No she broke up with me… After you go out awhile they just don’t think you’re funny anymore.” I about died!

That's too funny!
Of course girls are calling. He's a cutie! I know one thing for sure, Yanet. If you teach that boy how to COURT a girl, he'll be in hot demand by the girls who aren't forward. Boys just don't do that anymore, and it makes me so sad for my daughters. Who are not forward. Because I taught them right. :)

we never had that experience at such a young age (thank God), but we've been there with girlfriends in high school. Advice: Do Not get attached! (Easy to do when your the mom of three boys and a sweet young girl comes into your life.) I took breakups harder than my sons.

Some girls will and some girls won't. Once they get that cell phone, some girls text and control and tell the boys that they are now their boyfriends and it's crazy. However, a lot of very sweet girls do not do that. My son had a crazy experience with one of the forward, controlling girls with an attitude and now he likes the nice ones who just want to be friends and have fun. They are harder to get but he prefers that because there is no pressure. It's hard raising nice young men but it can be done. Just make sure he keeps the line of communication open with you.
