Not ready for this

Of late Lucy has started referring to one of her school friends as her "boyfriend." Our conversations have gone a little something like this:

Me: "Where did you get the idea of a boyfriend?"
Lucy: "You had a boyfriend and then you got married."
Me: "Yes, but I was 25 and you are 4."
Lucy: "Will you call A's mom and have him come to our house so we can get married?"
Me: "Don't you think you are a little young to be thinking about getting married?"
Lucy: "Oh Mom, we're just pretending."

Me: "What is it that you like about A that makes him your boyfriend?"
Lucy: "He likes to play with me, except when he doesn't want to play with me, and he makes me laugh."
Lucy: "I just love my boyfriend. He's in my heart."
Me: Silence.

Also I review the White Denim record for Donnybrook, as well Larytta, and going back a few weeks, the latest from the Sea and Cake.

Just explain to Lucy that she's not allowed to get married until New York gives that right to all couples, gay or straight. That ought to hold you until she's at least 13.

Oh.Crap.
My daughter thinks its funny that we will start dating at the same time. Then she decided that maybe I should start dating now and get off of Facebook.

In kindergarten I kissed Chris M. in the bathroom during playtime. In pre-school though, I don't think I knew boys even existed.

Ha! I don't know how I'd respond either.

"He likes to play with me, except when he doesn't want to play with me, and he makes me laugh."

--and this pretty much describes half of the relationships I've seen!

Be worried that Jake has made the cut. LOL
