The boys. reid and knightsThey have been staunchly anti-girl for so long, it is what I expect. Girls are yucky IS the Nirvana household position. Girls…ewww! Well, until yesterday. It was a school day.   I picked Rhett(6) and Reid(8) up first in carline.   They were deep in discussion about something when they entered the car toting backpacks and lunch boxes along with a variety of handheld paper projects. Rhett:   No, that isn’t how it is. Reid:   Yes.   I know it is. I promise you. You are wrong. No I am not!   I DON’T have a girlfriend. Reid {under his breath}:   Don’t bring up that subject. *that was phrased curiously* Me:   Reid, do you have a girlfriend? *Reid hits Rhett* Yes. {I try to maintain composure and steer the car safely through the school parking lot} Oh, who is she? Mary* is my girlfriend. *not her real name – for the faithful Nirvana reader, it is the girl who has been one of his closest friends since first grade. {I continue to try to maintain composure and steer the car safely through the school parking lot}   Good choice.   I like her. WHAT?   Does it really change just like that?   In third grade? And now I am questioning the position strength of the other two. Despite the fact that they tease each other to the extreme about just about EVERYTHING, no one has even whispered a tease about this.

  1. Lol, Reid has a girlfriend?! So cute. Soon, they will all have one, and will surely end this anti-girl thing.

  2. JDaniel has his first “girl” friend in preschool, but he maintains it really is just a girl that is a friend.
