Last Friday night I picked up the boys at a friends house {where a sitter watched a combined 7 kiddos between the two of us...Jessica knows how to whip those kids into shape} after a day of helping another friend move, and on the ride home this conversation happens.

Max: "Mom, I have to tell you something. But I don't want to tell you, I'm embarrassed."

And I reply; " Well, you can tell me, you can tell me anything. I won't laugh."

"I don't know, guess what it is."

And after 10 minutes of going back and forth {I have NO idea what it could be} I finally convince him he HAS to tell me, because I am his Mother!

"Well , all the kids say I have a girlfriend."

" I have a girlfriend!" Evan chimes in," Aubrey, and I kissed her 2 times."

"What? " I say fully knowing that Evan is completely making up this story just to be a part of the conversation.

" I mean, I kissed her 3 times."

So I tell Evan he needs to wait until he is VERY old to kiss a girl, and that he shouldn't make things up...you get the idea.

Back to Max.

"So Max, who is this girl?"


" Do you say she is your girlfriend?"
Does she say you are her boyfriend?"
"NO, and sometimes she is mean."

"If she is mean, why are you friends with her?"
" Well, she only was once, and I told her not to be and she obeyed."

{I am DYING at this point...and really don't know what to say}. "Max, she doesn't have to obey you. You can ask her to not be mean to you because it makes you sad, but you aren't in charge of her."

" Well. I AM taller than her."

I can't hold in my laughter anymore.
They do grow up fast, don't they?!
