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

My Oldest, age 13: “No offense, but I’ll never bring dates to this house. They’ll take one look at Daddy and say, ‘It’s not you – it’s me.’ And run away.”
