C: Mom, how old was Shade when she had her first boyfriend?
M: (Uh Oh) Um, well, she was a freshman, so 15?
C: (Already knowing the answer) Well, actually she was 14.
M: Oh, yea, you're right, she was 14 1/2, why? (Knowing full well the answer.)
C: Well, I like someone and he likes me. He asked me what I wanted for my birthday (next week she turns 14) and I said 'I don't know' and he said 'how about a boyfriend, cuz I'd like to ask you out'.
M: (LOL) Well, you know you can't date till you're 16, so I guess "being boyfriend/girlfriend" means hanging out at school and knowing all your friends "know" you're boyfriend/girlfriend, but no alone time...
C: Oh, I know, but how about group dates - like a whole bunch of us go somewhere public?
M: Um, that might be OK, we'll handle those on an individual basis.
I don't know if I am old enough to have 2 daughters that the opposite sex is interested in. I mean, I AM only, like 27, right??
