Today Ethan and I had so much fun together while he asked Kiri to Homecoming! He is finally enjoying some of the benefits of being sixteen…woot woot! I am looking forward to watching him enjoy the dating life, and boy is he off to an incredible start. I had such a proud parent moment when we went to Kiri’s house and talked with her mom LiLing. She was surprised at the amount of effort he was going to for her daughter. She asked, “Do you go to this much work every time?” Ethan was so quick to say, ” Yeah. It’s important to make girls feel special, and that takes some effort on the guy’s part.” In my mind I was like….”YES!”
And so the student becomes the teacher, lol!
Dear Ethan –
My sweet boy, real men make effort, baby! Don’t ever forget or lose that! ALWAYS make being thoughtful a part of your growth strategy. It will pay dividends for the rest of your life. Anyway, today was awesome. It was a great date with mom (while getting you a date to homecoming, lol!) It was fun taking pics and running around like crazy with you while we planned and plotted. Always keep that incredible heart.
