I'm not sure that there is anything in my life right now that is more entertaining than following my 13 year old son's Facebook page. How I love the drama that 13 year old girls create. It's nicer this time around, for me, because it isn't me believing that everything is the end of the world. I still very much remember being a 13 year old girl which is probably why it's so much funnier for me.
Last night while I was cruising Gage's page I noticed that he was no longer listed as 'in a relationship' but is now 'single'. That's not the most interesting part as I was already aware of this lifestyle change of his. What was most interesting was the barrage of insults he was subject to from his 'ex-girlfriend's' friends. They didn't feel it was fair that he broke up with his girlfriend through her best friend. He should have been man enough to tell her to her face. Might I remind you all, he's THIRTEEN. A time in our lives when anything bad and uncomfortable is best said through a note, a friend, ignoring, etc. In today's day and age it's so much easier, what with MSN, emails and Facebook. So of course, after reading all of this, my immaturity and Mama Bear instincts kicked in and I couldn't NOT comment. I got away with it for a couple of posts before someone figured out I was his mom. At that point I made the concerted effort to keep my comments civil and mature (they always were, but I tried even harder to make sure they stayed that way). I tried to 'educate' these girls on the real world. I consider it community service on my part. After 102 comments from myself and a few knowitall 13 year old girls I decided I'd wrecked enough havoc and bailed.
