And Then He Came Home

Another deployment is finished!

Maybe the military will leave him alone for a bit.

Things That Annoy Me Thursday: Dealing With Boy Puberty Stuff On My Own

Tom needs to come home.

I can't deal with boy hormone stuff with a straight face.

For instance, during our stay in San Antonio, Tommy apparently had his first wet dream, and my response was to go, "Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God," over and over again.

I also told him to burn his underwear.

Then I told Tom he needed to GET HOME RIGHT NOW.

Tommy knows about most of his boy stuff because I sort of thrust a book about it in his face one day. He was thrilled, and would report to me exactly what was happening to his body.

This made me go:

But I can't act disgusted, because I don't want Tommy to think it's wrong. So I'm all, "Wow, amazing, I think it's fabulous that you now have three armpit hairs."

I want my boy to stay tiny and cute. Not smelly and hairy. But puberty is happening, and it's happening at full force.

Help me.

(And PS: Tommy said I could blog about this. I asked. I promise. He almost seems PROUD that it happened. I guess it's a guy thing.)

Hey, It's Okay Tuesday!

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. They have a section called Hey, It’s Okay and will list a bunch of things to be okay about. You're welcome to join in and do something like this on your blog. Doesn't have to be on a Tuesday either. Just make sure you link up and that the post you link up is a Hey, It's Okay Post. Grab the button if you'd like!

--To find it odd to be home without the kids (they're with my parents) but I'm still enjoying it. I can read in peace.

--To be taking a bunch of stuff to Once Upon A Child. It's easier to do when Natalie isn't around. Otherwise she's all, "But I love all this stuff!"

--To have watched Trainwreck. It was pretty funny!

--To be ready for Tom to come home. I have a date. It's soon. But that's all I can say. Follow me on Instagram and you'll see when he's back.

--To wish Tom would lip sync to Hollaback Girl like Bennet on Orange Is The New Black. I asked him to and he was all, "Um, the military frowns on things like that." I mean, I get it, but at the same time it can help boost morale so soldiers don't think it's all death and sand Over There.

--To still be offended that Hannibal was canceled.

--To be excited when this arrives, because it means a deployment is nearly over.
