Protectiveness.

I may have already mentioned it, but my memory is for shit lately. But in having both daughters and now a son, I've noticed a really strange difference.

When I think of my girls dating, I don't worry about it at all. Of course I'll be protective and hate that they will most likely have their hearts broken at one time or another, but I am really excited for their future in dating. I loved dating and I'm happy that they have it ahead of them. (Of course my husband already wants to shoot any prospective suitors, but that's normal for dads I'm sure.)

But Karl. Oh boy. I think of him dating and it literally pisses me off. I do not want ANY girls to get their hands on him. Grrrrr.

...had a typo, couldn't stand it...

I don't know what you're worried about. Any girls are going to have to live up to the legend that is MOM!

That's funny, when I think of my DS dating, I feel fear, I keep telling him "You treat a girl with respect - if you dont, you'll have a Mad Dad on your ass" and I'm scared for him. I know how dads are protective over their daughters and DS doesnt understand that, there is a difference with boys and girls (with dads)

However my son has made me reflect on my own life and I feel so bad for the way I've treated some boys growing up, If a girl is as braty and ruthless as I was, I'll want to kill her. Girls are mean >:(
er..I was mean. And now after DS, I feel so bad for being so mean.

It's so odd you posted this. We just had a major boyfriend/break-up thing happen in our house this week. I'm pretty excited for both my kids to start dating, just not TOO soon...

I knew it would happen to you!!! *hugs* It's the beautiful mother-son relationship. I have the same thoughts as you. I don't even want to think about that time until it comes! :)

IT's funny you mentioned this. Hunter is not even OUT OF MY BODY YET and I've already had the conversation with DH and others that I don't think ANY woman will be good enough for my boy. LOL

I pity the poor teenage girl who is his first "real" girlfriend! LOL
