The Begining of an Era

This past weekend Mr. Weasel earned a few more gray hairs. He aged a bit in more ways than one. Saturday was the anniversary of his birth. To celebrate the event Eldest Weasel had her first real date, with a real boy, to go to Homecoming.

This is the start of an era that Mr. Weasel has feared since she was born. For years he has trashed talked how he would 'handle these boys' when the time came. He actually went to the Home Depot to look for boy repellent spray in the pest control aisle to treat the perimeter of the property.

Saturday was a jammed packed day anyway, so his mind was mostly distracted away from the main event. We had an early Cross Country meet and then a fundraiser event for SIDS of Illinois. Even with distraction, the more the clock ticked, the crabbier and more anxious Mr. Weasel became.

By the time 'the boy' arrived to pick Eldest up Mr. Weasel was just about to ready to blow. But also felt bad for the "the Boy'. He is a nice kid. We have known him and his family for a few years. He is very shy and was shaking like a leaf. He was definitely the 'harmless' date.

I however, show no mercy. I entertain myself by preying on people's weak spots. As we are taking pictures(Boy's mom(chauffeur) and I), I put my hand on the boy's quaking shoulder, looked him squarely in the eye and said "Mr. Weasel has been to prison,.......and he's not afraid to go back.". The boys Mom nearly wet her pants laughing. The boy nearly wet his pants but was not laughing. Mr. Weasel was grateful.

We then arranged that Mr. Weasel would pick them up from the dance and chauffeur them home. This way there would be no chance of Boy trying to kiss Mr. Weasel's daughter good night.

One daughter down, 3 more to go.

Too funny! Our oldest is a girl. When the first boy to take her out stopped at the house, he was sitting in the living room talking with me, and asks who won all the martial arts trophy on top of the TV cabinet. The Girl points to me... I tell him, yeah 'I can kill a man with my bare hands.' I like your style.

I have so been there. It was great to hear that you picked your husband up with the comment to the boy. All three of mine are boy crazy and I have a tough time with them as well as the boys they go out with. This explains why the hair on my head is quickly disappearing....

Good for you. I've told my daughters more than once that they're not allowed to date until they're thirty and married. I think my oldest is getting wise to my bluster, though.

Oh that's hilarious! I'm definitely coming to you when it's THAT TIME with my wee ones. Congrats on handling the first date so well!

I can identify with this! I enjoyed getting to know my daughter's friends and boyfriends in high school. I never used your solution; I just fed the boys a lot, so they wanted to remain welcome here! Fresh bread works wonders. :)

Kinda makes me grateful I have all boys. And a few years to worry about dating. I will start worrying when they start driving.
