Some of you have been following our story from the beginning - and even those of you who haven't should be able to relate to my quandary...
Last week my 14 year old son told me he no longer wants to be a JW. We laboured over telling his JW dad all week. Well, on Friday night he finally came clean.
But in a bizarre and unexpected twist, after having sex with his girlfriend for the very first time - in his father's home that very afternoon. (They have been dating for three weeks!)
We are all in total shock and never saw this coming.
So on the one hand, we're dealing with him telling his dad he doesn't want to be a witness... but now we are dealing with this whole sex thing.
And quite honestly... we were not expecting this and are ill equipped to deal with it.
If you thought my head was spinning before, think about his unique Mother's Day gift: finding out your 14 year old 'baby' is sexually active.
So... any thoughts on how to deal with this? So far, I've been playing it cool.
There has been talk he might move in here but what can I do? I mean, I'm not willing to allow for a free for all.
Religion or not, this is happening way too fast - but I have no real idea of how to deal with this.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Ideas?
Aye yi yi!
