that is how crap starts...

So i heard the other day a grown woman (she's in her late 30's, this is important because you will think she knows better :() ) who was proudly announcing that her 3yr old has a girlfriend.

Ok maybe i shouldnt be alarmed but common on! That is how crap starts.

Our Bibi came home one day saying that Jacob (that was a kid in her school) told her that she was his girlfriend (they were both around the same age, 3) and we stopped her right there.

A 3yr old has no business thinking (little less speaking) about boyfriends and girlfriends, they are only 3.

As a parent our job (well one of them) is to make sure they know that and what boundaries are (being having boyfriends at the age number 1 on the list).

Kids need to know early on that there will be a time for them to enjoy having a boyfriend (and they will hopefully enjoy IT, not that we as parents need to know any of it!!!!) and if she (well all of us) dont make that clear how are they going to know it. 

I have girls and a boy and i surely dont wish them to be influence by those views. Granted we never know what our kids will end up doing (and trust me after me work experience I pray EVERYDAY that they wait...) but also believe that we as parents need to do more than pray (which definetely helps), we need to be active in our kids life and stop worrying about what school my friends kids cousin is going, and how many ballet lessons she is taking, and how many shoes she has (because i think my child should have more than her) and start worrying more about our childrens heads (making sure that they dont have bats up there but actual fully working brain cells...)

Lord helps us all...specially me (my 2 little ones will give us a lot of work, they are only 3 and 2 but hey i could tell...)
