Can't this wait 6 years? (or: My Internal Dialogue)

"Katie dumped me."

"Oh, honey. I'm sorry." [Dude, you're 8. EIGHT! I am not ready to deal with the hussies. Aren't you supposed to be out eating worms or something?]

"M said he heard her talking to another boy. She told him she likes him, so she was going to dump me, and then she did."

"Well, I know your feelings are probably hurt..." [HUSSY!]


"And I just have to tell you...even though you know you're only 8, and you're not old enough to really have a 'girlfriend'..." [Especially not one who's a HUSSY!!!]


"I do think that was pretty uncool. She sounds awfully fickle. I don't think she was good enough for you." [Little hussy.]

"You're right. When she dumped me, I was going to tell her, "You are SO immature," 'cause I knew that would really make her mad, 'cause you told me about that, remember? But then I didn't, because I decided it would be mean, and I was too good for that."

"Wow." [WOW.]

Oh, and just a note in advance: Yes. I am a total Irish Mother. My son's too good for every girl he'll ever meet. :)

Ben hasn't really been dumped. His various girlfriend relationships have just sort of fizzled out, which seems appropriate for an 8-year-old. That Katie, dumping your boy? The nerve!

My son just finished first grade and had a few "girlfriends." WTH? When did little kids start thinking in these terms? *sigh* Your son sounds like he made a very noble decision. Good on you both. :)
