the girl has periodically mentioned this boy in her class who is just a friend. she mentions him casually in conversation so i believe that indeed he WAS just a friend but...today things changed. today the boy not only played with her hair when he sat behind her in daycare, he also winked at her. red alert! red alert! AND he has a pet name for her, cat (yes, you know she loves the hell out of that) and she won't let anyone else call her this.
we found all of this out this evening in the car. i think the hubs almost had a seizure. as she was telling us about all of this i said quietly to him, and so it begins. he cringed. yes, she had a "boyfriend" last year, but this is different. this is a boy who is her friend.
we'll see what unfolds.
because of the nickname though, our boy decided he too needs a nickname. i told him my pet names for him, the girl tried to call him dogg but the boy has decided his nickname is...pocket knife. why you may ask? because he's so...sharp. if that doesn't make you lol i don't know what will.
