That Girl

Me: “Are you still dating that one…”

My Oldest, age 14: “Yes.”

Me: “Good. I approve.”

Oldest: “I don’t need your approval.”

Me: “No, but it’s nice for your parents to approve of your significant others. It says a lot about your choices.”

Oldest: “I think I’m the one the other parents worry about.”

Me: “Good.”


No biggie

My Oldest, age 13, announces she has a boyfriend. He’s nice and funny and they talk every day after school. He asked her on a movie double date this weekend.

She says it like it’s no big deal.

First boyfriend.

Suddenly don’t feel like the most important man in her life.

No biggie.
