oh boy

I guess I just didn't think this day would come so soon.......

Ryan briefly went to a birthday party after school yesterday before hockey. It was a classmate--a girl! Anyway he came home, went to hockey, and told me about the party afterward. We chatted about the food, cake, games, etc. He said they played truth or dare. My radar went up, but then I told myself that these are third graders, not seventh graders.
Moving on to approximately 8:55pm.......the phone rang. Thad answered it, told Ryan it was for him, and then came into our room where I was feeding Brady. I assumed it was my dad, because he calls occasionally to say hi or good night to the kids. Boy was I shocked when Thad said that it was the girls from the party!!! The girls??? I just didn't expect girls to call, but he is in 3rd grade. But, then I remembered calling the 3rd & 4th grade boy of my dreams--Ryan Gwaltney. (remember our skateland fight over him AJ?)
Being the nosy Bonnie I am, I scurried downstairs to listen. Of course Ryan was being cocky and acting like, "Oh my god, you girls are so lame." Then he hung up, the same way my Ryan hung up on me years ago. The phone rang again....and again later.
I asked Ryan if he likes any of these girls. He says no, but I know that one of the girls there was a girl he had a huge crush on last year. Anyway then he said, "Well one likes me." I asked how he knew, and he said, "Well during truth or dare, I asked if she liked anyone. She brought me in her room, locked the door, and told me."
As you can imagine, a few red flags went up for me, but I let it go. I am not ready for girls and phone calls. It is interesting watching the boy perspective of this though....

Man, how I loved Ryan Gwaltney....

I can't believe girls are calling your house. I'm going to be your shadow - learning how to deal with this stuff for the future.

I can't believe it, either!! But Ryan is so much the quiet man...and we girls love the ones with a little mystery, don't we? I wonder if the girl's mother knew she was calling a boy?

It was a group of girls from the birthday party....so I am sure all the mother heard was the giggling!
