What is there to say, but that she is her own person. She is bold. Strong. Confident. I love all of these things about her.
And when I say the apple didn't fall from the tree, I mean she is so much a crazy mix of me and Tony that it is a little nuts. (Ok, a lot nuts!)
So, last week when she told me she was gonna ask a boy to be her boyfriend, I have to say, I wasn't surprised. You see....I was the type of girl that wasn't shy and so if I wanted a boy to be my boyfriend, I asked him. I wasn't one to wait around for him to get the nerve up. I was a bit impatient in that manner. Shock! But her being just like I was is not the part that made me smile last week.
She didn't ask in text. She did it face to face. And he said yes. I told you...major confidence with this one. I think Moxie is a good word. But the next evening, the boy broke up with her. He was a coward and did it through text. He said he was too busy and didn't have time for a girlfriend. Which of course, this is cracking me up. Dude! You're a 7th grader! OMG! Kids these days.
So the part that made me smile, was when she crawled in bed with me that night and said...
"He just broke up with me. I cried a little. But I'm over it. It's not like he was the love of my life."
Speechless. She has such a great outlook. And I know this is only the first of many. But I can tell my girl is gonna be just be fine.
