Kiddy Kounsel - Thoughts On Dating

Today's question comes from my super cute (and single) e-friend Shaylee Ann from Mother {at} Heart.

She wants to know, "How do you get a boy to take you on a date?"

Jacob wearing about eight shirts so he can look "tough".

Alayna (age 3) *silence* ....................Get ice cream.................. and say please.

Jacob (age 5) *huge shoulder shrug* If he won't take you then ask someone else! Or just say please. And you have to act nice.

Joseph (age 6) - *blank stare, crickets chirping*  Uuuuuuuuuuuuh, I don't know. Smile at him a lot. Talk to him a lot.... Make him a birthday present. Well, you have to be in love... I don't know! Look pretty I guess 'cause if he's a boy who likes pretty girls then you want to look pretty. And make jokes! Like:
Knock knock!
Who's there?
Mr. Banana.
Mr. Banana who?
Mr. Banana peel-head!!

If none of that works, you have to let the boy decide.

Savannah (age 8) Here's a boy, (holding up her left hand) and here's a girl. (holding up her right hand) And she's just walking along all droopy (her right hand moves forward in a rather wilted fashion) and he's like, "Hey! You want to take me on a date?" And she's like, "Suuuuuurrrre!" (right hand perks up)

Droopy? "Take me on a date?!" *groan*

If nothing else, one thing has become abundantly clear.

I have some serious, serious talking to do with my children.

Makes me wonder how often guys wear lots of shirts to make themselves look bigger.

So.... ummmmmm, ya. Take what you will from that Shaylee Ann!

Alayna might be onto something with that ice cream idea though.

But there is one thing you HAVE to do.

Let me know how that joke works for ya.

P.S. I'm running low on questions so be sure to submit yours! Just leave a comment or hop onto Facebook!

That was super awesome. Good thing you have a few years left before unleashing them on the dating world...

Wow, I don't know how I got married without knowing these things. Incredible! I was wondering if your kids know how many kids I should have. I already have 5, so how many more?
(hope you don't mind a fan from the great white north)

Neisha - I'm pretty sure it was the joke.

Joy - Not at all! We're happy to have you!! Hahaha... it will be interesting to see what they have to say about your question since it sort of pertains to me as well. :)
