My older daughter is sick. So last night it was just the 13 year old and I driving home from youth group and worship band practice. I'm SO not ready for these conversations with this child.
"There was a boy who is 13 and in 7th grade who talked to me a lot tonight."
"He asked me a lot of questions like 'why do you wear hearing aids'."
"He asked if I want to go out with him. What is 'go out with him'?"
"I told him NO."
"But he was kind of cute."
"He wanted my cell phone number."
"How come I can't get a cell phone until I'm 16?"
"How old will I have to be to be able to drive:"
And in the midst of this I said to her "Hmmm. What was his name?"
Her reply, " I don't know who he is."
