Boyfriend of the year award...

You would think that being surrounded by girls that The Beautiful Son would have a head start, not to mention having a mush junkie for a mother. I always thought that my son could be trained to be the perfect man, stop laughing right now, I can put you on the naughty step...

Last week it was the new girlfriend's birthday, they'd arranged to go into town, see a film and then go and eat afterwards, there was a group of them going. Just as well.

The Beautiful Son came home from school and feeling a bit tired, decided to have an afternoon nap, so got into bed and set his alarm. This was at 3.15 pm. At 7.45pm he was awakened by his Dad, who'd just got home from work, enquiring as to whether the cinema trip had been cancelled.

The bold boy had slept through his alarm, 8 missed calls and a gazillion text messages.

And she still didn't dump him, apparently she found it quite funny that her boyfriend slept through her birthday. How very understanding of her. Maybe he has other redeeming qualities that I, as a mere Mummy, can't see.

He better make the most of it, it will be the last ever time he is forgiven for such a sin!

Probably best not to start thinking along those lines!!

Autumn Mist said...

Yes, it's a mystery, isn't it? (I have two sons). She'll learn!

Oh, I can't see him getting away with it twice. Did he send flowers. You can do anything wrong, and if you send flowers, all is forgiven...

Am thinking he must be as silver-tongued as his mother to have gotten out of that one!

Laura said...

Awwww! I like her style! It's always a story to bring up when she wants wants something.

Ayak said...

No doubt about it...she must be smitten!

He is the Beautiful Son, perhaps that explains it :)

libby said...

He must be worth hanging on to .. lovely lad that he is...but in certain respects fingers in ears and lalalalala is best when thinking (or trying not to) about our young'uns developing relationships I find.....
