Yes, yes. I'm fabulous. Moving on...
I guess I wasn't sure whether this is just innocent kid stuff or if it means she's developing an interest in boys. Although I guess there's a spectrum there, it's not necessarily one or the other kwim?
On closer examination, the boy in question is actually a bit younger than DD. I think it's more innocent. Not that I think it would get beyond holding hands, but I wasn't sure if kids start saying they are boyfriend and girlfriend at age 9... they didn't when I was a kid.
The tricky part is that DD says that she doesn't want to hold this boy's hand, but thinks it would be rude not to. I'm trying to explain to her that it's better to be clear about what you're comfortable/uncomfortable with.
