What caught my ear...
"Your girlfriend??"I asked. Then I rephrased...
"Do you mean your friend that's a girl, Peyton?"
"No, she's my girlfriend."still very nonchalant about the whole thing.
"She's my girlfriend, but she has a princess backpack!" (He doesn't like that about her.)
At this point I realized I am suppose to act nonchalant too...
"Oh cool, what does girlfriend mean?"
"You know what it means. It's just when a boy likes a girl, he asks them 'Hey, do you want to be my girlfriend?' and if she says yes, then she is." shaking his head and shrugging his shoulders... I am already an idiot apparently.
"Who taught you about that stuff Tre?" (I was trying to sound very nonchalant still.)
"Mema, I was born knowing about that!" (I had to stifle my laughter, he was serious!)
I really wanted to ask more questions, but I could tell he was done talking about it.
But you can be
sure that this Friday when I go to the "Writer's Celebration" party in his class, I will definitely be looking for Peyton, and her mom:)
I'm not ready for this.
