Girlfriend.Girlfriends.I already dislike them.

I have 2 handsome boys.

And I know they will break my heart one day.

It is a dilemma I acknowledge.

As much as I want them to grow up to be fine young gentlemen and learn to treat ladies with due respect and love a woman single heartedly; deep down in my heart – I know I will be green with jealousy when that day arrives. Can I say I already dislike all my sonsโ€™ future girlfriends? hahahaaaโ€ฆ.. (*evil laugh*)

Or rather the protective mother hen emerge! How can you blame mothers? Mothers have this instinct to perhaps, over-protect, over-nag, over-suspicious and over-emotional. I still remembered the first time I met my now in-laws some 16 years back. ๐Ÿ™‚ Mothers are often the ones who will want to continue the โ€œmotheringโ€ of their โ€œMamaโ€™s boyโ€ and leaving Fathers to take on a protective shield over their precious โ€œDaddiesโ€™ girlsโ€.

I have 2 charming boys.

And I know they will charm some (good) girls one day.

And I am seeing it now!

There is this cutesy fair girl from school who bears the name โ€œOliviaโ€ โ€“ the name of the character of this series of books he was reading last year. Xi En announced to me after a few days of school that he likes Olivia. I am not sure if itโ€™s the name or the person. ๐Ÿ˜€

There is this tall and strong girl in the neighbourhood whom he enjoys following around. Superwoman is fun to be with! ๐Ÿ˜€


And there is this pretty Australian girl in a colorful tutu dress whose hands he held on so endearingly throughout our stroll in the Melbourne city. My college friendโ€™s daughter! He proudly counted โ€œEโ€ as one of his friends when he tallied his โ€œfriends countโ€. ๐Ÿ˜€

It is heartening to see that Xi En is friendly to (most) girls and treat them nicely. And I am glad heโ€™s in the โ€œright orientationโ€. Heheheh.

I know one day I wonโ€™t be the only one who can wipe his tears when he fall, bring a smile to his face with smothering kisses and welcome him home with a bear hug.

Be still, mommyโ€™s heart. We have some years to go before his heart includes another woman besides his Mommy! Till then, I will do my best to bring up fine young men. You are most welcomed, my dear future daughter-in-laws. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Friday and weekend to come everyone!

P.S: Do you have a son too? Like me, do you watch his growing up with lots of pride and some butterflies in the stomach too? ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I was in tears when I watched Ah Boys to Men because I was thinking about when my boys are grown up and going to army! Don’t even want to think about having girlfriends…. ๐Ÿ˜‰
