I can't even say the words without cringing. I'm told that it's probably a phase and to roll with it, but truth be told, I am appalled at the whole idea. What the heck? This is too much for my nerves to take. I'm not even really sure what bothers me so much about it. I know it's all innocent, but it just seems like she is too young to even know the word "boyfriend". She told me her boyfriend was Caleb and that he was in love with her. Even just writing that makes my hands shake. It doesn't help that I've seen Caleb "Mr. Fast Pants" at work at the bus stop, and I don't like it. He's very touchy. Apparently he was hugged up on her, on the school bus today too. Some neighbor kids told me that one. I guess I will just have to try not to think about it, not sure what else to do. I did tell her that she needed to tell him to keep his hands to himself and that I didn't want to hear about any kissing either. That would push me completely over the edge that I'm barely hanging on to right now. Ugh! Just enjoy being a 5 year old! What happened to boys being gross? Aren't boys supposed to be gross and disgusting at this age?
