What Do You Do?

What do you do when your five almost six year old asks if a girl from his class, that you know he has a crush on, can come over and play?

What do you do when he asks this after watching one of those Disney shows where the poor kids have signed a perpetual contract and we all have to watch them go through puberty, and on this particular show the boy has found the girl of his dreams and kissed her?

What do you do when, after you say yes we'll invite her over, he asks if they can play inside not outside?

What do you do when he asks if the air bed he got to sleep on as a special Spring Break treat can stay inflated while she is over?

Well, first you s*** your pants. Then you remember who you're dealing with and breathe a sigh of relief when you realize that he wants to impress her with his ability to jump from the back of the couch to the couch cushions and then propel himself into the air and do a flip and land on the air bed.

So, you don't have to worry that the parents of this girl will think you are breeding a sexual deviant. You just have to worry that your son's flailing limbs will knock her for a loop while she stands in awe of his circus-like abilities.

Since we can see A playing on the playground during recess, we get to watch all the playground politics in action. Sometimes he runs around with the boys, and sometimes he has a bunch of girls chasing him. Tom and I just watch with our mouths hanging open. LOL When did he grow up? He's not even 8 yet! ;)

That Wildington has always had circus like capabilities. He can fly like a bird and land like a cat. I am sure the girls will be in awe of him just as Memaw and Nan have been.

Yes! What a relief! Circus stunts are the preferred problem by far.
