So many kids, I don't know what to do.

Ty went to homecoming last weekend. 
Him and his friends debated over whether they wanted to go with dates.  None of them did, but I don't think it was for lack of trying.  I know Ty asked two different girls.  One of them he asked in front of a couple of his friends and I think he embarassed her.  The other one wanted to go, but her parents would not allow her as she goes to a different school.

They did however allow her to go to the homecoming football game. 

Her dad brought her to the game and I assured him I would be there the entire time and I would be happy to take her home afterward. 

She was adorable.  I kept trying to get a picture of them together, but I didn't want to be THAT mom.

Later when the game was over I met back up with them and overhead their conversation.  Ty was telling her how much one of his football buddies liked her and asked if she liked him.  Also when asked by indredulous friends who didn't think such a cutie would hang with him, if they were going out, Ty apparently replied, "No." Nice.
Anyway.  I asked the girl how to get to her house.  She told me very politely that she only knew how to get home from certain places.  So...we had to first go to her old junior high and then to her house from there.  I thought it was funny because she has now been attending high school for six weeks, but she didn't know how to get home from there.  I am thinking in my mind (where else would I think?) that she and Ty can never marry because he got his sense of direction from me.  None. They wouldn't be able to go anywhere and I would never see my grand kids!

The other thing she did I thought was so cute is she said, "Dowhat?"  When Tanner asked her something she didn't hear instead of just saying, "What?"  She said, "Dowhat?"  It was adorable.  I wonder if I can pull that off.  (No.)

When she got out of the car I did tell Ty that in the future when he was on a date he should refrain from pimping the date out to his friends.  He claimed it didn't matter because she didn't like him anyway.  Hello?  I pointed out to him that smiling and hair flipping is kind of flirting.  I also pointed out that she would not have agreed to go with him if she didn't like him at least a little.  And furthermore how did he think she felt that he was pawning her off? 

He got a shocked look on his face and said, "I guess I was an ass!" 

He is learning. 

As for the dance he went to solo.  He said he had a blast.  I asked him what he did and he said that he danced.  I have NEVER seen this child who is 6'2 and 220lbs dance.  NEVER.  I would like to have been a fly on the wall.


  1. Oh you are such a cool mom. And yes, do teach him. We don't need more clueless men around. :)
    I wish you were THAT mom and took pictures anyway.

  2. I am so not looking forward to that day. Our oldest is only in 5th grade and so far totally uninterested, but I know it's coming. And I know he'll be as clueless as his daddy!

    He's so handsome! I hope he really did have a nice time!

  3. LOL @ thinking that he was an ass!

  4. I think I was like the date in the giving directions department...I was 20 before I learned the difference between north, south, east, and west!

  5. Great post, love the lack of sense of direction. It would be sad to never see your grandkids, good thing they won't be marrying soon. :)

  6. AHHH... I have to tell you the thought of girls /girlfriends frightens me... you handled this in an amazing way my friend... (ps.. was she blonde?/ sounds like me with!!)

  7. I guess she could have been offended by that, you're right. LOL Glad he realized it!


I always like to know someone is listening!
