Thoughts #2

Last night, me and hubby watched the movie "Love Actually". There was this 11-year old kid whose mom just died but he was thinking more about a girl at school than grieving... he said he was "in love" and he even went pass airport security just to tell the girl his feelings...

I suddenly realized that my son will be 11 in 3 years time and I don't think I am ready to face that part of his life... what do these kids know at this young age? I don't remember me "being in love" when I was 11 years old. All I remember that I do is play and homework and play and homework (as if I'm doing my homework) hehehe...

Can you believe that there are some 11-year olds who are already a mother! Click here and here and here for some unbelievable stories... what's happening to the youth today???

haha. aliw ung bata dun sa love actually.

kids grow up fast these days, or is it that they actually WANT to grow up fast.

ako nga i'm trying to be a big sister to one of my mum's friends daughter, and at 14 she had 3 bfs already. i told her that when i was fourteen, i was still playing chinese garter. har har.

scary, isnt' it? my son Robert, who's soon 10 years old, often gets a call from girls from school. a few weeks ago, i asked him what he thinks about all these girls calling and wanting to come over, his answer was pretty relieving, even funny, he said "girls are a pain, mama, and I'm not matured enough for them yet"...

am sure your big boy will grow up a good man. with supportive parents who can balance discipline, respect and honesty and instill these with their kids, the rest of the life will be a breeze.

just remember, as parents, you are only caretakers of the Children of God. you can only do so much.

ha ha, tell me about it. my son is 10 and he already has a crush. but i think i did have a crush at 10, but not in love. i am shocked with how advanced and "mature" the young kids of today are (gosh i sound so old).
