My girls are 6 years old...not 6 1/2, not 6 3/4...they are six. Today Emilie came home from school and was telling her sister in the back seat of the car that "Rudy" asked her out today...and she said YES! *insert double take here*
This is all new to us...and having identical girls, we are getting a double dose of it on the first try. What do we do? How do we act? I asked her about it and she said no, then I said, "You can always tell me about it" and she said yes. I hugged her and said that "exciting" and said this will be the first of many boyfriends.
Do kids at 6 YEARS OLD...really have feelings for each other? For the love of goodness...what does one do? So I am going to sit down with my girls tonight over dinner and we are going to "talk" about what it means to have a "boyfriend"?
Should I discourage it at this age? Should I tell them they are not aloud to have a boyfriend until a certain age? Personally, that would have made me had more boyfriends than not. If they don't think its a big deal, maybe they won't do it.
Oye ve...what am I gonna do?
