So the teen has got a boyfriend. I don’t know how I feel about this. And I don’t know how I feel about him.
The other week he came around to meet us. He was polite and OK but after a couple of hours he got a bit cocky. He sat close to teen, cuddling her and he even laid down on my sofa. Yes LAID DOWN! The cheeky little git. We didn’t say anything as it was the first time, but not long after, we told him it was time to go as we were going out.
The next time he came was a short visit so not too bad.
The third visit he jumped on my sofa to sit in the corner of the corner sofa. Well I was not having that! I said “What do you think this is a hotel? I may have been nice the first time you came around but I’m not always like that!” He soon bloody sat up straight.
It’s so tough because I don’t really think he’s a bad lad, maybe just a bit too confident.
It’s also difficult because I have to try and be careful what I say because I don’t want to embarrass the teen because I would rather she met him here than anywhere else, but I’m also not going to be a pushover.
Sex is my biggest worry. I’m not so concerned that the teen would want to do it because when we were talking about it the other day she kept calling it ‘doo dah’ so as long as she is still calling it that, I’m pretty unconcerned. But I still worry because you know what it’s like when you’re 14 and in love, you may do things because you think they might leave you if you don’t.
I know she is a sensible girl and I just have to trust her but it’s so difficult sometimes.
It’s so funny when you hear people say how worrying it is having small children, because it is a breeze having babies and toddlers. It’s when they get to tween and teen age that the worrying really begins!
