Okay, so. I wouldn't be a good parent if I didn't snoop, right? I mean, after kids do crazy things, isn't there a resounding world-wide, echoing howl that says "hooooow did the parents not knoooow???" Right? Well, I refuse to be that parent. So I snoop on my boys phone. *AND* Even though Rhett "Strongly Suggest's I don't" post this, Tristen doesn't read my blog, so I don't feel sooo bad about it. Someday I'll tell him he can go check my blog archives from April 2012, the spring of his 5th grade year, and he'll appreciate the memory. I am sure of it.
Now. Onto my snoop.
K, so, there is a girl, Mimi, in T's class that has had a crush on him for days. The bball coach was the first to bring it to my attention cause poor T got beat in bball by little miss Mimi one day after school. Big miss Mimi actually. I saw her for the first time about a month ago during the school play. The girl is Tall and Gorgeous.
I cleaned T's room while he was gone for spring break and found 2 crumpled up little notes, stuffed up on the very top shelf of his closet under a big pile of crappola, and they read:
Do you like me?
"insert a box here" Yes
"insert a box here" Maybe
"insert a box here" No
I knew then that things were getting serious. And poor miss Mimi. She apparently didn't get an answer with those two notes. It makes me wonder how those two poor notes ended up stuffed way up there in his closet. Were they passed from Mimi's BFF to Tristen's BFF to Tristen? Did T promptly stuff them in his pocket without reading them, and then when he got home, he was mortified and stuffed them up in the one place he thought no one would ever find them? I don't know. I don't want to embarrass him by asking him. Though, they are now pinned on his corkboard in his room. He hasn't discovered them yet.
I've asked him innocently here and there about Mimi and he's just sheepish and won't tell me a thing. "Is Mimi your girlfriend?". "Nooo MOM". oh. "Does she still like you?" *total eye roll and exit from the room* "I don't knoooow mom. Jeez." And that is that.
So I check T's phone. Particularly the convo's with his bestie, Ian. That's where the goods are.
"It all hit his head??"
and "she's not right"
and of course, the perfect response:
it starts young, doesn't it.
At least I know my boys' head is on straight.
And I told his dad,
so hopefully the dad-son "Mimi" convo will go farther then the mom-son convo,
I guess he just doesn't like to talk to me about it.
So says his dad.
But, I need to know what's going on with my kiddo, right?
So I snoop.
which leads me to my question.
Would you/do you snoop?
Just wonderin' :)
