7-Year-Old Relationships

Little Miss and I were talking.  She just came home from a sleepover with the inlaws and three little cousins (almost 5 years old and 2 1-year-olds).  She mentioned that she wasn't sure she wanted kids.  They were a lot of work.  I said I understood.  It's her choice.  I asked if she wanted to get married.  She said no.  I asked if she wanted to have a boyfriend or girlfriend.  She said, "Well, there is someone who already said we're going to get married."

Now, we're talking.  So, I push a little more but still stay conversational.  She goes on to say that it's the same little boy last year who said they were going to get married.  However, there's been a constant boy who is pushing for a date when they turn 18.  She kind of thinks they're both a little silly (as well she should).  I asked her what she thought.  She said, "Well, I like them, but I don't like LOVE them, you know?"

Ugh.  She's so grown up.
