Helo Mom 102

11-5-08 Helo Mom Update:

On November 4, 2008, America elected its first black president, and my daughter got asked out on her first date.

She said no based on parental advice and age concerns, but has not excluded the possibility of having him come over to meet the parents and be interrogated accordingly. He asked what sports teams the Beloved likes, whether he hunts and fishes....smart kid.


Click on the link above to watch the Cheerleader's new favorite song/video. This absolutely nails it. It is exactly how I picture her romantic little 14-year-old, Jane-Austen-loving mind at work...

I can't tell you what the 18 year old Football Player's mind is thinking. Pretty sure this isn't it, however.

Is it any wonder that her parents are a pair of trainwrecks?

Oh yeah - today's revelation: his after school job? Lifeguard. Problem? My daughter has had a starry-eyed lifeguard crush thing going on since she was 2. Every single session of swimming lessons back in CA, there was some 18 year old Adonis lugging her around, and they loved her as much as she loved them. A favorite quote from the tall blonde reincarnated Viking surfer god from the summer of 2000: "Your little heartbreaker is an excellent swimmer - I will miss having her in my class, but she's ready to move up to [whatever the next level was] with Jen."

I am torn between running to the kitchen to gulp down a large glass of wine or perhaps agonizing over tea and chocolates. Update: I resorted to all 3

Tea and chocolates. Definitely. :-)

Go for the martinis instead.

Oy vei. I don't think men think like that, period. Even the most romantic ones.

I'll say another Hail Mary for you...

(HA - the word verification is "revert"...)
