Do you remember the moment you "flipped" from not liking girls or boys and thinking they had cooties to trying to figure them out and feeling something different for the opposite sex? I remember playing cops & robbers with my sister, a girl friend next door, and a boy and his cousin from next door. The boys were the cops and the girls were the robbers. They always picked one to already be in jail and for some reason, it was always me. One day I realized why it was me. On this day, the cousin "Charley" told everyone that he was tired so he was going to sit down for a little while. He sat there with me. I started noticing that he was scooting closer and closer to where I was sitting, but I was naive so I didn't pay any attention to it...until he leaned in and tried to kiss me! Ewww gross!! I jumped up and ran home! My sisters picked on me and laughed and joked and I was just embarrassed.
But I can't really say that I remember the specific time after that when I wished I had let him kiss me. I know I thought about it but only to myself because I did not like boys like that. I just know that I am glad that I finally realized that boys were more interesting instead of just always embarrassing.
There is a new movie coming out on November 23rd that follows a young girl and boy from grade school to junior high, and we see the moment that he flips from thinking she is gross to looking at her a little differently. You know, how we start to day dream about the one we like? Can't think of anything except her, can't concentrate on school...the first signs of being "flipped".
This will be a wonderful movie for moms and daughters to watch together. Check out this mom & daughter resource guide: http://partnershub.com/widgets/flipped/downloads/flipped_resource_guide.pdf And I have the opportunity to offer a DVD to be given away to one of North Carolina Momma's readers. This is going to be fun.
