I went on a field trip with Zoe this afternoon to our local library and post office. I learned two things...Zoe's classmates call her ZoZo, and she has a boy classmate that has a girlfriend...the same boy who wanted to be Zoe's partner during the field trip. When Zoe said no to the boy, I felt kind of bad for the kid who was just rejected by my daughter, but my feelings quickly changed when I saw the same boy holding hands with another girl at the library. I couldn't believe it. They are in 1st grade...they are too young to start noticing the opposite sex, aren't they?
On the schoolbus heading back to the school, another boy was talking to the boyfriend/girlfriend pair and he was telling the boy that he was so lucky to have a girlfriend...what?! you guys are 7!!! The boy then asked the girl in the boyfriend/girlfriend pair why she was with a short boy like him(the boyfriend...who is a head shorter than Zoe) when she could be with a tall boy like him...oh brother...I guess the "you're not dating until you move out of the house and go to college" talk will be sooner than I thought.
