So, Connor gets in the car after school today and says (very excitedly I might add), "Guess what happened today." I made a few random attempts which were all wrong. Then he blurted out "I got a girlfriend and I'm only nine!" I was a bit in shock and felt a little numb. I started by telling him that he can't have a girlfriend yet. He very convincingly said he could. I told him he couldn't date until he was sixteen. He told me it was more of a crush. I then asked him how she became his girlfriend and his reply was, "She loves me and I love her." What in the world am I to think? I had no idea this was coming today. He's only nine!! It totally threw me. Haldan, being the reassuring husband he is, told me I shouldn't worry. "At least it's a girl," was his only comment. Although true, it didn't make me feel a whole lot better. Any other more reassuring thoughts out there?
