LADIES' MAN

Picked Rojo up from school yesterday, he pulls me aside conspiratorially and says, "Mom. We need to talk. We need to have A. and C. over to jump on the trampoline. I can read their brains, and they are bored. They can come to our house and then they won't be bored."

I agreed and Rojo turned to A & C and said, "Okay, girls, go home, ask your moms and get your swimsuits, because it's going to be a sprinkler party at my house!"

They agreed and scampered off.

All the way home it's, "Mom. What should I wear to look nice for the girls? What snacks do we have for the girls? Will you get some towels out for the girls?" The girls, the girls, the girls...

Boy's turning 13 in 3 months.

He's right on schedule.

The girls came, could NOT have been more darling, and a good time was had by all (especially because Portland got record breaking temperatures and that made being soaking wet a whole lot more fun).

When they left he said, "Mom. I really handled the girls well. I did really well having two girls here. I am good with girls. I think they had a nice time."

He's right.

Any girl would be lucky to have him.

But they'll never get him away from me.


(Yes, I'm aware he's painfully thin. Thanks for the concern.)

So cute in a cut-your-heart-out-way.
No way.
I need your guidance in a few years. I have 3 boys. THREE BOYS. OMG. NOOOO!

Never say never...

Don't be suprised someday if Rojo and his lovely WIVES aren't picking out nursing homes for you and STM...


Love you
Suzy

Oh that's so great to hear. I love it when children still get to be children. And yes, I also have 'the painfully thin' issue around here.
Best wishes

If Romeo had had a trampoline, he wouldn't have been standing below the balcony...

That looks exactly like my Alex. I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one with a wet trampoline in April.

Honestly, that made my day.

What I'm concerned about is the lack of safety netting around the trampoline. It's the nurse in me.

That being said, Rojo is TO DIE FOR cute. I love him. So glad he had fun with the girls.

Trampolines rule. I miss mine. I mean, the kid's.

He looks like I did when I was a kid. He'll gain weight eventually.

I was to busy salivating over the sigh of green grass and green trees. Sigh.

Oh, Carrie, I love this. The things Rojo says remind me a lot of Nigel. BTW, Rojo is built exactly like my younger son (who will be 13 in 4 months).

Jenny said...

Very sweet and very fun. Now, can you send some of that warm Portland weather this way? We had snow flurries yesterday.

Miss M is gonna be sooooo jealous.

Two-timer.

My son was just that thin. Rojo's fine. :)) My son is now 25, tall, and has a 36-inch waist.

I think it's adorable to see them going through their first crushes. :)

It's looking like you might at least have to share. The man!
