True Love

Son #1 has a girlfriend. She's "hot", smart, and, to quote, "I actually talk to her". Different from his last "girlfriend" EH ("extremely hot"), with whom the extent of his interactions was a tag on the playground, with a reciprocal tag back.

"I almost kissed her, Mom. We were talking in the ditch, but then the bell rang." I told him 10 year old boys should not be focused on kissing their 10 year old girlfriends. He just laughed.

Yesterday, he borrowed the au pair's phone to send his first text message. It read "I love you."

Actually, it said "I love you, mom." It was to me.

An old saying... "A daughter loves her mother for all of her life, while a son loves his mother until he takes a wife." Hence, the battle of the in-laws begin.

All that being said, I hope that things turn out differently for you and your ten-year old son. It CAN happen. The proof of that statement is you, My Dear The Wife. The beautiful relationship that exists between you, my daughter-in-law, and me, is a shining example of how it should be.
