My ten year old has a "date"! →
[More:]So I come home from a few days in London to hear the news.....
"Mum, we have a year six leaving disco!" (he goes to secondary school next term)
"Cool!, I love what you're wearing"
:" Everybody is asking DATES!"
"Ohhh" (thinking, my Aspie child doesn't do social cues really well)
"It's OK though, I'm going with Bethany"
"Ahhh" (Bethany is the best friend) " so how did that happen?"
"well, I said, Bethany are you going to the Disco with anybody?"
(Imagining little Bethany's hopes rising...) "ehhh, so what did she say?"
" She just giggled and said "NO". So I said, all the boys are asking GIRLS!
(Me; Imagining the face he must have pulled at that!)
So I said Bethany we should go together"
"What did Bethany say?"
"She said, "Killian I am a girl"
"Oh, is that a problem?"
: " I said. No don't worry, you're not a GIRL girl, you're my FRIEND, so that's OK, Mum, right?"
