Cactus Buddies


Kristin has a friend.  She met him through The Hobbit.  One day during rehearsal they were all practicing with PVC pipes as swords, and this young man was goofing around and sort of dancing.  Kristin was puzzled, and asked, "What are you doing?"  He responded with, "I'm dancing." and then added, with the pipe  held above his head with both hands, "I feel like a cactus." and proceeded to dance like like a cactus.  And the cactus buddies were born.  For a long time I didn't know his real name.  She has names for all her friends.  It's almost like Seinfeld.  His real name: Teddy.

This past Saturday, he invited her to go Christmas shopping with him.  I didn't think of whole lot of it. His mom drove them.  He bought stuff for family and he bought stuff for her.  Yes, he likes her.  And she likes him.  It's very a little scary for me.  I am thankful she has good moral standards.* They went and saw Santa Claus. 

So I see happy smiles.  I see cuteness.  And I worry. 
*I am in no way implying Teddy has no moral standards, as I really don't
know him.
What's a mom to do?

I guess it's a mom's perogative to worry...But this boy sounds more charming than dangerous. ;)

I wish I could find a boy who would act like a cactus and take me shopping and to see Santa!!!!

hahahaha! Cactus buddies. Nice :). Well... as long as you've instilled great morals in her, you should just trust her, right? oh and make sure when he comes to pick her up next time your hubs meets him on the front porch with a shot gun in hand, a doberman on one side and a german shephard on the other.

it's what we mom's do we worry over everything that has to do with our children and their well being.

Ah so now I know who the cactus is!. He sounds like a fun kid- and those theater boys are usually dramatic but fairly harmless :)

I love those funny pictures! How cute that they took pics with Santa!

Moms will always worry about their daughters. It's in our blood.

Thanks for linking up your post!

I got nothing. I'd worry too.

Well, a good thing about that age is they can't go anywhere unless someone else drives them. As long as it's not an older teenaged sibling, I think they'd be pretty safe.

But that means you get to drive/chaperone for the next outing. :)

They are very cute cactus buddies. I know I'll be a worrier when my daughters are that age too.

Oh boy, it's tough when it starts! But she'll be totally fine. This is FINE! And so darn cute to me. How hilarious that he was dancing like a cactus!
