As simple as that16 January , 2014
Last week one day, after picking Nicola up from school I had a moment of pure I’m-not-ready-for-this panic!
We were sitting in the car, chatting away as usual, and all of a sudden she tells me, “I have a boyfriend now, did you know that?” I whip out my best poker face and say, “No, I didn’t know that. That’s nice…what’s his name?” She tells me and it’s not even one of the kids that I know from her class. I ask, “So why do you say that he’s your boyfriend?” and brace myself for the worst. “Well, because L (her best friend currently) wasn’t at school today and I played with Z (the young man in question), and he’s a boy – so now he’s my boyfriend.”
Sjoe! Hahaha, thank goodness! I’m so not ready for THAT conversation yet. I’m really hoping we have at least another 6 – 12 years before we get to that! 😉
Ps! We were at my parents last night and Nicola convinced my dad to set up the “nap-packer” in front of the TV after dinner. And then she convinced me that I needed to lie on it with her (I wasn’t all that hard to convince really). I very nearly fell asleep right there, it was lovely.
So far, this week has been much more fun than last week for me. How is your week treating you?
