My First Online Love

You would think with a title like that I was talking about myself, but I’m not. I’m talking about my four year old son.

A few months ago I met one of my online friends using a web cam. She is in Canada and I’m in the US so a face to face visit isn’t happening anytime soon. Well…it will in June, but that is another story. Any way, my son was behind me and kept asking who the person on the screen was. I introduced the two. My friend already knew who PMan was because I talk about him ALL the time. lol Between looking at himself on camera and talking to my friend, he was fascinated. For days after he kept asking when he could talk to her again. I kept telling him I wasn’t sure and he would tell me…but mom, I want to talk to her.

A few days ago I was talking to my friend again, this time through IMs. PMan saw the picture and said, “Hey…that’s your friend.” I told him it was and he told me he wanted to talk to her. I said it would be different this time because I’m just typing. So there I sat there waiting to hear what my son would say. First he said hi, nothing unusual about that. I think the next thing he said was he wanted to meet her, still nothing strange. I’m typing away. Letting her know it was PMan talking. Then he told me to type that he wanted to hug her. See, nothing too serious, but his next words blew me away.

“Tell her I love her.”

Um…okay…he’s FOUR! I thought for sure he was kidding. I asked him again what he wanted to say.

“Tell her I love her.”

Trying to figure out if I should laugh or cry I typed his words. My friend took it well and said how sweet PMan is. But…he’s FOUR! lol

He’s already a little flirt, but I thought for sure it would be at least middle school before my son told me he loved someone. Boy was I wrong.

Then last night I watched the end of this show called Momma’s Boys. I could not believe these women! Don’t they want their sons to be happy? The last guy had to choose between his MOM and a girl he was attracted to. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? AND…AND…the mom expected to be picked and got upset when he picked the girl. She said she was leaving with a broken heart! I couldn’t believe it. I really couldn’t. One of the other guys picked the girl his mom wanted him to pick NOT the one he was attracted to. I can’t stop shaking my head. It is just too crazy.

I DO NOT want to be that mom so my son can say ‘I Love You’ to whom ever he wants and as long as he’s happy I’ll be there for moral support.

My seven year old wants to go and live with his aunt. She's much nicer than I am, he keeps telling me.

He sounds like he's such a cute kid! I remember my 17 yo when he was that age. He loved everyone as well! He was very quite and was really shy about it.

He isn't any more. LOL!

I have a four year old son. Don't be too worried. They love everyone. It's kinda too bad we grow out of it. :-)
