My girl is a smart one for sure. When she got home from HER DATE the other night, I asked if they were "seeing each other" or "dating" or whatever it's being called these days. She said that they had talked about it earlier (when exactly, I'm not sure) and she told this young man that she felt they should hang out some before making any decisions such as dating. She thought that if they were comfortable hanging out, then maybe seeing each other would be an okay deal.
She came back an hour or so later after that to let me know that Young Man had called and asked if she felt comfortable while at the movies. She agreed that it was a nice evening and I guess now they are dating.
Monday morning as she walked out the door on her way to school, I made the comment, "Have a good day with your new boyfriend." Her reply? "I'm sure I shall." And she floated out the door. Ahhh....how sweet.
I've had a few people comment on Paige's age. Yes, she's 14. If you met her and talked with her, you'd swear up and down she's at LEAST 18. Bless her heart, she's being aged before her time. Sure, that's sweet on occasion now, but wait until she's 30 and wishing she looked 20 again. Time has a way of turning on you eventually. She's a good kid. A tad mouthy at times (she got it honest). I can depend on her. Which to me, says alot. I know she'll come through for me in a pinch if need be. I'm not her friend, but I am here for her. She knows this.
I'm not going to just let her have freedoms she has no business having. I'm not crazy, Internets. I'm going to keep a close motherly eye on her. The Man is probably going to investigate any boy who comes within a ten foot radius.
Now if I could just get her to clean her room...........
