about a month ago, little bit came home with some important 4th grade information.
well i'm here today to tell ya,
"charlie" made his move
( charlie's real name has been changed to provide the little guy some anonymity)
caroline had heard rumors that he had big plans to "ask her out".
she had planned out her sassy smack down,
which incidentally i forbid.
she might not be allowed to date until she's 25 , but she still needs to be kind.
so charlie had sent a note via one of his posse
telling caroline to meet him alone, no less,
by the stairs at recess.
he obviously has no idea that women now and forever more
will travel only in a large group.
friends i wish i had a little video to share caroline's reenactment of how it went down.
after he asks her if she wants to go out
( are you loving this?)
she's all in the middle of her very eloquent refusal,
something along the lines of not being old enough
well before she finishes her reply
he bounces off into the horizon
saying something like , "well ok caroline"
before she even got the actual "no" word out.
she told me, "but mama, i had more to say!
don't we always baby girl, don't we always.
clearly the little guy has a resilient spirit.
she says there is rumor he's gonna ask her again
you know, in case she's officially old enough now.
funny thing, her favorite guy friend in her class has offered her
his protective services. in the event they're needed of course.
it's moments like these that validate the reason
why i blog.
in a few years i will be tickled to go back & read this post.
especially if charlie ends up asking her to prom one day
