    I'm Not Ready

    So, I took my son to the International Car Show last week....reclaiming a tradition from my Ex.

    We oohed and aahed over the sweet rides, while I talked up the benefits of a manual transmission.

    He jumps into the driver's seat of a convertible and says in his best Master CDawg pimp daddy voice (for an 11 year old)
    "Sweet! This is sure to catch the eyes of the ladies!"

    This from a kid who would leave the room, or cover his eyes if there was a hint of a kiss!!!!

    I'm so not ready!

    I don't really forsee any problems.

    I'm just gonna miss the little boy who grinned at me, stuck his foot in my face, and said "Hey Mom! Wanna smell my feet?"

    PDawg, Iron Man's right. Boys don't outgrow that. They also don't outgrow hiding around the corner for the SOLE purpose of scaring the crap out of you. It's just when they grow up, it shifts to their friends and wives.

    CountyWolf, she came home with a fedora and a pair of pin striped mafia pants today.

    I really dislike the goth thing. My niece did the goth thing for a few years and the thing I noticed was many of her friends were depressed, cutters and many were obvious drug users.

    Not a clique I'd want my child to be in, but there is not a lot you can do. If your forbid them to do it, then they only "push away" harder.

    Sounds like you are in for hard times buddy

    Mine's going 'perky goth' in that she likes the clothes but thinks the attitude sucks. Her current dream is to headline in a world famous rock band, then retire at her height of fame and open a bar in which she will be the main draw/ head bartender.



    I won the 'cool mom' award twice so far. I drive (what they think) is a sports car (Hey, it's not a mini van!) and I got her an electric guitar for christmas. Basically, I impressed the middle schoolers.

    Actually, I lean more to the industrial side of things. She likes the look. Not an unhappy person at all. Also unlikely to get into drugs as she wants to be a K-9 officer when she grows up.

    She's a good girl and daddy's girl to boot. Whatever she does I love her to death.

    Cool. That's the only thing that keeps a person from using drugs, personal goals and beliefs. I stressed that to my now 18 yo son when he showed interest in LE. Now he has just been hired as a Correctional Officer at a Sheriff's Office.

    It all has to do with the motivation to keep clean.

    Very true. I make intentional efforts to scare my friends, g/f when I have one (that maybe why I DON'T have one ) and my mom when the chance comes up. I'll wait for quite a while for the chance to come up.

    Oh yeah, the feet thing.. It's very humorous to have others unentionally smell any kind of vile body odors.

    Well, that's where the Perky Goth thing comes in...

    I'm not so much a Goth as into the Industrial scene... my dress style is more Goth than Industrial. I'm not depressed enough and way too grumpy to be a Goth. Though I do hang around a few. And I do wear the eyeliner...

    If I go out in General public in my kilt I get stared at... I go to the Club in my kilt I get complimented and asked where I got it...

    Just FYI... Most of the Goths I know avoid the drugs... They'll drink, but that's all.

    Not Bad. She's cute as hell, but I like Lacuna Coil better.
