I have come to yet another example of the difference between sons and daughters.   Today while I was pulling out of the driveway I saw my sons car and it had written on the rear window and saw a giant "I love you Josh" written on it and a I (heart symbol) U Joshie" on a side window.  I asked him who the note was from and he said, my girlfriend (with a look on his face like.... Hello)  I asked why he didn't tell me about her and he said, well, ya didn't ask!!  I see him a few times a week and he never once mentioned her.  I ask the obvious questions about her and he answered in pretty much one word answers.   He gave me absolutly no other information that the questions I asked.

Now maybe I'm just really spoiled because my eldest daughter and I talk all the time about pretty much everything under the sun and to my knowledge she doesn't keep anything from me, believe me I wish there were some things she maybe should have kept to herself (lol.... if your reading this Chelsea you know what I'm talking about cause I mentioned it to you just the other day)

I don't know how to feel about this..... John reminds me that when he was younger he never told his mom or sister anything about his life so its pretty much a guy thing... but still, I would have hoped that he would have shared the fact that he's in love or at least that he is in a relationship.

Oh well..... what can I do, nothing thats what!  I guess I should be asking more questions and not assume that he will include me in his life the way Chelsea does (and shes in Florida)!!!

Apr. 17, 2008 at 8:04 PM I think your theory in flawed. My hubbs is talking to his mother right now. He tells her everything. Sometimes thats a good thing sometimes not. Its awesome when she tells him hes being a jerkhead to me :)

Apr. 18, 2008 at 8:02 AM First, his girlfriend is over 18, right, since he's 19?  Second, he's 19....I think between 14-21 most males don't share with their mothers.  When I met Jamie, I didn't even know he had a mom (you know what I mean...he never talked to her).  Now, he talks to her several times per week just to keep her updated on life.  It was the same with his dad so it's not like he talked to his dad and not his mom.   To disprove your theory, I believe it also depends on the daughter's relationship with the mother.  I have friends whose moms STILL don't know what's going on in their lives.  I can't imagine that.  I call my mom about 5 times a day!

Apr. 18, 2008 at 2:59 PM Well, Dana thats the scarry thing for me, he said shes 18 and a senior in High school and he will be 21 in July.   She had better be 18 !!!!  I graduated when I was 17 and was one of the youngest in my class so I guess its probable that she is 18.   I hope I hope!!

Apr. 20, 2008 at 11:33 PM How did I miss this?  I stand behind my earlier message, he would have told you when he thought it was serious.  I am sorry that you are feeling like he is not keeping you in the loop, but he will bring you in when he needs to.  Troy never spoke of his mom, and just thinkinh that TJ might do the same thing kills me.  Hang in there.
