I don’t know if any of you all have heard the song “Cleaning This Gun” by Rodney Atkins, but it’s a cute one from the view point of a dad with a dating age daughter. If you haven’t, you listen to it below:
The other day I had all the kidlets at Lakeside Park here in town. Miss Jess is very soft spoken, quiet, have to have a megaphone in front of her to hear her ask to be excused from the table. Not that day!
She and the boys were playing on the playground, and another little boy, bout a year or two younger than her, came over to play with them.
He asks: “Are you my girlfriend?”
She rears back and yells in her loudest voice: “NO I AM NOT YOUR GIRLFRIEND! DAD SAYS WE CAN’T HAVE A GIRLFRIEND OR BOYFRIEND UNTIL WE’RE 18 YEARS OLD!”
The little boy was very persistent.
So was Jessica!
He asked her a few more times, and she yelled the same answer each time.
I was sitting there listening to the whole thing while crocheting, giggling under my breath, and proud of Miss Jess.
I told hubby about this later on in the evening, and he laughed. Although…he had told her 80, instead of 18. But close enough. 🙂
Dad’s thinking the guns are in need of a good cleaning now….the boys are starting to come around already!
What does your hubby tell your little girls about dating?
