Don't go breaking my heart
While having coffee this morning with two of my girlfriends, the subject of having your heart broken when your son breaks up with his girlfriend. My girlfriend was telling us how her heart was broken when her son decided to abruptly break up with his girlfriend and announced to his mother that she would not be attending a family wedding. My girlfriend said that it felt like a knife was being stabbed into her heart. She said his breakup caught her off guard. She did not have the chance to say goodbye and she did not hear from the ex girlfriend afterwards. The relationship that she had with his girlfriend was just gone one day and it hurt. She had grown to love this girl as her own.
My other girlfriend laughed as she told her story. She was dating her future husband for 2 years and a month before their wedding, he brought her home to meet his family. She said that he told her, he was only going to only bring one girl home and that was the one that he planned to marry. Though we all questioned why it was only a month before the wedding. We bantered back and forth and I told her he waited until 1 month before, so that she wouldn't run away. His family was on their best behavior, almost courting her too as they were preparing to marry him off.
Today Rachel V. spoke in her freewrite about meeting her boyfriends family and seeing his childhood romping grounds. I was also introduced to my husbands family while we were still in college. It's funny how as mothers of sons, we want to attach ourselves or some may want to scare away, the prospect that they are dating. twenty miutes before my son left for college, a car pulls into our driveway and a girl gets out. her mother speaks to my son as if she's known him for years. I look at the cute girl and her mother in shock.
Who are these people that are so comfortable with my son? I looked in his eyes, have I told you that he's my CIA (you'll never get information out of me) boy. I promised myself not to ask him, until the next time I see him and have him in the car alone with me. You know how they spill their guts out when they are alone in the car...
