Why didn’t anyone tell me boyfriend/girlfriend business starts so young these days?
Yesterday Trysten told me his “friend” from camp told him that he was HER “rockstar”. Seriously. I admit, it’s hilarious and a genuinely original way to tell someone you’re a fan of theirs but the kid is five. I am able to sleep at night hoping neither one understands what that means and perhaps she said it because she heard him play the guitar and recognized immediately his raw talent.
Today the awesome lady at the Y’s childwatch (Miss Sally) told me Dailah has a “boyfriend”, Jack. Jack will sit at the table and yell, “Dailah, get me food, Dailah I’m hungry, Dailah I want to eat NOW.” And Dailah, being the good wife she is, gets him his plate and fake food, waits while he eats it and then clears the table only to sit by her lonesome to enjoy her dinner. Then they walk off holding hands.
