There was a Valentine's Dance at school the other night. I didn't think The Boy wanted to go, but he surprised me and said he did.
The Boy no longer has a girlfriend...that has been over for a few months now. They are still really good friends, but no longer a couple. This has been fine with The Boy, but now, this young lady is going out with another boy. That part has been difficult. Going to the dance was to be the first time The Boy was going to be in a situation seeing her and and her new boyfriend in a dating sense. They all go to the same school, but it is not the same as seeing them out together.
I had a feeling it would be tough night, and it was. The Boy didn't make it through the entire dance. He called for us to pick him up early. It was a rough night, but he got through it. I am not sure if it was tougher for us to see him upset or for him to be upset! Sadly, it is the first of many and, as we told him, not only will his heart be broken again, but he will be the heart breaker as well.
*sigh* Sometimes, growing up stinks!
