Bizarre Love Triangle

None of my boys has ever shown any interest in a girl as a girlfriend (except for when Sweet Pea first saw Princess Leia in the slave girl copper bikini get-up.  But, duh.) and certainly never used the actual word “girlfriend”.  Pumpkin Pie, especially, has been pretty consistent with his stance on girls:  Who needs ’em? So, when he came home from school last week and told his father he now has TWO girlfriends, Emily and Sophia from school, I was surprised by his word choice.  I am pretty sure he means that they are girls and they are his friends, hence girlfriends, as opposed to his enemies which is what they were prior to this.  Emily is dressing as a peacock for Halloween and I don’t know what costume Sophia is planning to wear, because when I asked him, he calmly said, “Mom, please stop asking me about my girlfriends”.  End of conversation.  Good grief, what will this child be like in 10 years.  I am afraid.

Peacock and Spiderman?


I would put a picture of Sophia's costume, but I am not even allowed to ask.
