Ladies Man

Lets talk shall we?
I have a son.
He is 8.
He is girl-crazy.

At 8 years old.

My 8 year old son hangs pictures of women in bikinis in his playroom.
He also has a few girlfriends.
All of them are older than him.

He makes them gifts like this.
It is a bracelet made from a hair elastic, safety pin and plastic gem.




My girl crazy son writes his girlfriends letters.
And writes "I want to kiss ________" on paper that he leaves laying around the house.

Yes, really.

He is 8 years old.

So be a friend and tell me how I am supposed to handle this situation without losing my cool and locking him in his room until he is 27.

Thanks.

Well...uhhhh...I got nothin'. But from the outside looking in, that is just SO cute!! :)

So-do you know how many "ladies men" posts I've seen lately? Am thinking we all need to band together and create a convent for boys...

Foursons said...

Wow. I've got nothin'. Sorry. But keep us updated! Does he know what kissing actually is? Maybe if you threatened him with something really bad if he actually did kiss a girl. Like he would turn into one or something.

I'm liking Muthering Heights' idea.

Although one of his girls sure is gonna LOVE that bracelet... ;-)

LOL. Well, I can tell you, I have been there with my son Alex (but when he was 6). Try not to make too big of a deal about it and he'll settle down (you hope)

Oh my!! Um..... I suppose you could send him to military school. But really I would just try not to worry about it. Said from the outsider who does not have this problem yet. :)

He's a chip off the old block I'd say....Worked out for me.

Awww, what a sweetie. I hope he never loses his romantic side.

But, yes, you should probably keep him locked up. Til he's 18, or 21. Or 27.

Uh oh!! Future ladies man there!

Yeah. Let me know when you figure this out because it sounds like my 4 year old. Actually kissed the 8 year old down the street on the lips a few weeks ago. Luckily she's a bit fast herself so she wasn't too put out by it, but still. Not cool. I don't want to be a granny when I'm 40!

I vote for the all boy school. :)

Good luck with your little heartbreaker. I'm sure the little ladies love him too. His homemade gift is sweet.

Oh my! LOL!

A girl game my 8 year old her phone number at school last week, and I when I asked him if he wanted to call her, he gave me a resounding

NO!

I've got two girls and I'm dreading the day this comes up.
