Confessions of an 8 yr old

I was driving my daughter to practice the other day and she was jabbering on about something as usual. One thing I notice about girls over boys is they just have a need to be making SOME type of sound ALL THE TIME.  Anyway...she started talking about boys.

DD: "None of the boys like me...I mean like LIKE me"
Me: "It's ok, you're in 3rd grade, boys are GROSS! anyway, they have COOTIES!"
DD: "Well I have a boyfriend...he used to be my EX-boyfriend but then we got back together, so now we're dating."

Me: "What does 'dating' mean these days, what do you do when you're "dating"?"
DD:  "We play together at recess, play games, pretend stuff, and swing on the swings together.  Swinging together is TOTALLY romantic."
Me: "Hmmm...swinging huh?"
DD: "Yep, Swinging."
Me: "Ok...sounds interesting, try not to get cooties!"
DD: "OH Mom! Really nobody gets cooties these days, that must have been something you old people got...now all kids get is Lice."
Me: "YIKES!!  No Lice either, I'd rather have cooties!"


DD giggles and moves on to another subject. Car conversations are always informative.


Upon further investigation(or rather the image results when I searched for "Cooties" on google images) it seems that Cooties and Lice are the same thing...so I don't want anything to do w/ either one! YUCK!

  2. Isn't it great when they are young and they say they "swing together" and you automatically think of part instead a creepy middle aged network exchange? LOL Visiting, and following, from the blog party.

  4. I still ask my 12 year old how he can be dating someone when they barely see each other at school or do anything outside of school besides the occasional school dance.
