My boys are discovering the world of girls. And it's adorable!
The oldest, the third grader, is definitely more interested than my first grader, but there's still a curiosity there. The other night as they were getting ready for bed, I caught part of a conversation they were having.
"You should just ask her," the youngest told the oldest.
"But what if she says no?" he responded.
At this point I was coming into the room, and only having a slight idea what they were talking about I said, "And what if she says yes? You'll never know unless you try."
A few nights later we were sitting at a restaurant having dinner with my mom, and the oldest turns to me and says, "I have a girlfriend now."
Which I thought was so sweet and cute. Apparently, he asked this young lady to be his girlfriend on the bus when they went on a field trip.
It looks like his bravery and willingness to take a chance paid off.
