Hiding in plain sight

For the past two and a half years, this blogging thing has formed the conduit for the extension of my thoughts. Writing a diary was never my intent, but that is certainly what it has become in many ways.

Oddly enough, I have never written in a paper diary or otherwise journaled anything.

When we were expecting Sweet One, I did write in a journal to her to let her know how very excited we were she was coming into our lives. At the time a part of me was concerned something tragic might happen and she would never know of our love for her.

That journal is now gone. It was not one of the things we were able to salvage from the fire; however, at fourteen she has several years of memories which should instill in her the knowledge of our love.

Lately, I have been writing over her to vent my feelings regarding the boyfriend issue.

Dash was concerned about her reading my true thoughts.

I have been banking on her not checking Feisty. As it is, she rarely checks the other place much anymore, unless, she overhears our discussing a particular post or comment.

When Sweet One has asked what I think of her boyfriend, all I have said is: "He's okay. I really haven't had much of chance to get to know him."

I know that disappoints her, but I do not think she needs to hear what I really think.

...and of course that was totally truthful. You really haven't gotten to know him yet. Some people take a while to grow on you.

One thing I can say is that from all that you have written about your daughter I know that you trust her spirit and she obviously sees something in this boy.

Take Care

She's 14. What she sees in him is that he likes her and he's "cute".

She'll figure it out on her own soon enough, I think.

I am a mother of a 7th grade boy and his romantic interests last about a month and he does love those older 8th grade girls! So far he hasn't expressed an interest in any one girl but I know that's coming. Makes you want to lock them up forever or find the furthest boarding school. Thanks for directing me to this site. His mother sounds so trailer park!
