I mentioned a few posts ago, that Ian had a girlfriend. She is a very sweet girl, her name is Jadey. I haven’t blogged about her yet, because I wanted Ian to be OK with it. He says it’s OK, so here goes. This is a picture that Jadey’s mom took of the two of them together. They were on an outing with Jadey’s mom and sister. I like Jadey a lot. I like that she loves Ian for who he is, and doesn’t try to make him be someone else. I like that when they are together, I remember my first love. I like that Ian seems to be floating on the clouds all the time. I like that when they have needed to, they have had long talks about the things that are bothering them. I like that as close as they love to sit, and as many times as they kiss, it’s like 12 year olds. Not adults. I like that Jadey tells her mom everything, and that she encourages Ian to do the same with me. Yep. Think what you like about me letting Ian have a girlfriend. I only know that when I was his age, I got good at lying to my mom about my crushes and boys. By the time I was 16, it was second nature. But this post is not to justify that decision. It’s to tell you that there is young love in my house, and I like it. I like her.
