The First of Many, I’m Sure…

By Glinda


The phone rang, and I automatically glanced at the LCD display to see who it was. Don’t we all?

Oh, a mom friend of mine, one whose daughter is in the Munchkin’s class. Fabulous! What gossip does she have to dish out to me today?

Instead of mom, though, I hear a rather breathless, “Hello, this is Cutest Little Girl in the World and is the Munchkin home and may I speak with him?”

Thrown for a bit of a loop, I walk over to where the Munchkin is sitting. He is engrossed in his newest obesssion, which is an old Scooby-Doo movie where Scoob and the gang meet Batman. I think he pretty much has all the lines memorized at this point.

I hand him the phone with a chirpy, “You have a phone call!”

And ever the clueless male, he continues to watch the television until I make him pause it. He then chatters rather aimlessly for about a minute and a half, and they hang up. Something about chocolate chip cookies was communicated, that I know for sure. The rest is anyone else’s guess.

So he says goodbye and hangs up the phone. Instantly, he turns the television back on. No big deal. Just a blip on his radar screen.

And all I can think to myself is awwwwwwww, he just got his first phone call from a girl!


Oh crap! He just got his first phone call from a girl!

I am so not ready for this!

    Glinda, I can’t recall how old he is, but at that age it’s usually a homework- or school -related question. Fear not!

    My five year old also seems to have a way with the ladies. They greet him with “Hi! Hi Kai! Hi Kai!” and hugs every day, then “Bye Kai! Bye! Kai–bye!” at the end of the day. He finally said to one of them “Enough with the byes already!” Classic.

    Oh, I don’t think they are “boyfriend/girlfriend” or anything remotely like that! At least at five, I fervently hope not.

    It was just that it hit me very oddly at the time.

    The whole girlfriend thing has only crossed my mind briefly, and the call made me realize that whole other component of his life that will be coming up!

    Oooooh … yeah, that’s a tough reality, but at 5 YO, it’s a reality that involves things like chocolate chip cookies AND that isn’t even code for anything. It REALLY is cookies.

    My almost 11 year old is so close to this “stage” and yet still pretty far away. Yeah, girls like HIM, but he still thinks a girl’s worth is solely based on her ability to play kickball.
