My daughter asked me a question tonight that took a little bit of deciphering. She asked "What does it mean when someone has nothing on me?" After some digging, it turns out that a boy told her that the star of the Twilight movies, Kristen something or other, had "nothing on you" in reference to my daughter. Since this Kristen person doesn't even know my daughter, I knew she didn't have some sort of dirt that she was holding over my daughter's head like blackmail. LOL!
But... ...that means that this boy thinks my daughter is cute/sexy/pretty/some other adjective I don't even want to contemplate!
I asked her if he was cute. Noncommittal shrug. I asked her "If he asked you to be his girlfriend, would you say yes?" Her answer...I already did. What!!! "Oh, but I broke up with him today." They had been "dating" for less than three days. Now he is begging her to be his girlfriend again. Not sure what to think of that. AND, he is one year younger.
The good news is that "dating" means they call each other boyfriend and girlfriend. There may be hand holding, but probably not. Kissing is a little less likely. Going on an actual date is even LESS likely as none of them are old enough to drive.
Can I turn back the clock and make my little girl be five again?
