5 yr old already going steady ???? funny children dating


Here I was, getting everything ready for school:
children dating parenting advice
* 5 yr old bathed and dressed [ checked ]
* brushed his teeth [ checked ]
* lunch for school ready [ checked ]
* gold ring for girlfriend [checked - what ?????]

That is right, I found a gold ring [ costume jewelry ] amongst my 5 year olds things as I was getting him ready to go to school. When I asked him about it - he smiled and slowly told me it was for his girlfriend ... his girlfriend?

First I wanted to be proud - my boy is a stud...
then I thought, what the heck he is only five...
then I thought again - what a stud....
then back to, who the heck told him to give the girl a ring ????

children to young for datingI thought it was bad when he would occassionally mention that he liked a girl in school. Hey, all kids say that. Then one day he said he had a girlfriend [ ok not too bad, everyday it was a different girls name so it can't be too serious ]

But a ring, who the heck gives a girl a ring at age five. For goodness sake it wasn't until I was 10 that I gave a serious gift to a girl I liked and it was just perfume - not a ring?

Geez, hopefully it's nothing, but kids sure want to grow up fast now a days. Next he'll be probably asking to borrow the car to go on a date....

When you thought I wasn't looking


WHEN YOU THOUGHT I WASN'T LOOKING


A message every adult should read because children
are watching you and doing as you do, not as you say.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you hang my
first painting on the refrigerator, and I immediately
wanted to paint another one.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you feed a
stray cat, and I learned that it was good to be kind
to animals.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make my
favorite cake for me, and I learned that the little
things can be the special things in life.

When you thought I wasn't looking I heard you say a
prayer, and I knew that there is a God I could always
talk to, and I learned to trust in Him.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make a
meal and take it to a friend who was sick, and I
learned that we all have to help take care of each other.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you take care
of our house and everyone in it, and I learned we have
to take care of what we are given.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw how you
handled your responsibilities, even when you didn't
feel good, and I learned that I would have to be
responsible when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw tears come
from your eyes, and I learned that sometimes things
hurt, but it's all right to cry.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw that you
cared, and I wanted to be everything that I could be.

When you thought I wasn't looking I learned most of
Life's lessons that I need to know to be a good and
productive person when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn't looking I looked at you and
wanted to say, 'Thanks for all the things I saw when
you thought I wasn't looking'

Woman not stronger - men just stupid

I found a leak in the master bath [ sink ]. It wasn’t bad but enough to eventually do some damage. So I put a bucket under the sink and proceeded to make sure I knew exactly what was broken, what needed to be replace and of course don’t spend a lot of money [ if you remember my water heater experience - that was a mess ].

So after figuring it all out [ I thought] I told my wife that I was off to home depot.
She responded by saying:

“ you don’t love me like you use to anymore.”

What? What was she talking about? Where did this come from, what did this have to do with the leak?

She continued “ Before if I asked you for something you would do what ever you could to get it for me, now you don’t. it’s like you don’t love me any more…” sob, tear, …

I’m not sure how it happened but my dilemma with the leak became a test of my love for my wife. I thought fixing the pipe was an example of my love, you didn’t have to tell me three hundred times to fix it? You didn’t have to fix it yourself? How does this in any way means I don’t love you.

men dumbThen she told me about the perfect faucet that she wanted, that she has been wanting for a long time. I put my foot down, no, uh uh, I’m not spending any more money than I have to. We’re on a tight budget.

Ofcourse when I got to home depot, got my parts, saw a faucet my wife would love…. Idiot, weak me bought it. I put it up and everything. I got one huge, one kiss and now she is asking for something else….. But atleast the job looks good.
