My 8 year old proposed to someone yesterday

Posted by   + Show Post
He used my Facebook,when I was at work and he was home with his Daddy, to propose to Alyson Felix. She is the most decorated track female American in Olympic History.

I thought he was going to break my couch jumping when she was running in the relay.

Well, apparently he is going to be better than Usain Bolt someday because he is practicing every afternoon to be a sprinter. And she is as beautiful as Julie Newmar in 60's Batman.

But he can't marry her for 14 years because he has to graduate from college.

However, he can do laundry and cook so he can take of her the way she needs to be cared for.

I came home and checked my FB. I had close to 500 likes and 100 friend requests because he made people laugh.

I sent a message to her after I deleted his post letting her know I was sorry if she had too much traffic because my son's ego is bigger than most cities and I did not want a media thing about this.


She responded by asking for our address so she could tell him how special she made him feel.

This is a well raised adult.

This is such an adorable story!  What a sweet kid you have, and what a wonderful person she is.  She is really beautiful, so I see why he wants to marry her.  Does he like the Bounty commercial she is in with her dog?  It's so cute.

And your son is wonderful.  Being 8 is a wonderful age.  We have so much hope.  I don't think it's his ego.  After all he wants to take care of her.  He's going to be a wonderful man for some lucky woman.
