Growing up




This is J2 and her boyfriend... I know I have posted pictures in the past of them going to school dances... well on the 16th they will be celebrating their one year anniversary ACK! only 7th grade and they have been boyfriend/girlfriend for one whole year! His parents come into the gas station and we always talk... his mom said she told Lance she hopes he marries J2 because she really likes her... I told her that J2 has already told me that her and Lance will get married after college... strange thing is other parents tell me that they can see J2 and Lance being school sweethearts and getting married some day.... J2 even told me today that the church she attends is where Lances parents were married. Oh gosh... can they really start to plan this early?!?!?!


On to J1... things are moving fast with him. He has always been super picky about girls (still is) and he now officially in his Junior year of high school, 5 months before he turns 17, has his first *real* girlfriend, the first girl he has ever asked out... the girls have always asked him out and they have never lasted more than a couple weeks.... and it has actually been about 2 years since his last girlfriend.... well in his first real relationship things are strange... for me... to see him, mr.picky, in my house, on my couch, with his girlfriend, her caressing his hand, smiling at him, etc.... is just ... strange.... she is a very nice girl, very sweet.... but last night he took her to the movies, then he came up to see me at work, and as he walked in the door and said Hi to me I immediately told him I was going to kick his butt.... he had.... a... hickey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG. He had no clue it was there... ran home embarrassed to get a jacket with a collar... I told him, after he came back that I did not want to see that... if he has a hickey, FINE but I do NOT need to know about it.... TMI!!!!! I should also add that this being his first real girlfriend also means he had his first kiss... well duh, the hickey gave away that they are kissing... but I mean this is the first girl he has ever, ever kissed or been kissed by... I must say that I am proud of that fact... that he is not a man whore in the making.... but still there are some details that I just really do not want to know about...


Back to J2... her and her boyfriend are still very much shy, luckily they have not even so much as held hands... they have danced of course at the school dances but their relationship is still very much proper. I am so thankful that he has good parents who have raised him well... I know other kids in her class, boys and girls, and I know the things they are doing (J2 has told me) and I am SO glad her and her boyfriend have no interest in that! and they both do extremely well in school...
