My daughter has her first crush on a boy from her class. A couple weeks ago she asked him "Do you want to hang out sometime?" and he didn't say anything. The next day he said "do you want to exchange phone numbers?" which they did.
I met him this week when I chaperoned a field trip at school. Nice kid. He hinted to her yesterday when he was free and she got up the nerve to call him, after I made her finish her homework. It went to voicemail. Then he called back and they arranged to get together. And they played soccer with some other kids from their class who live nearby his house.
So... she was really nervous..... and I am entering uncharted territory! What does a mom do when boys start calling? My little girl is growing up. BOYS!! AHHHH!!! I can tell she gets embarrassed and bashful about this boy from her class. This is different than the kid she had playdates with since preschool, who incidently has a crush on her.
