Well, mommy explained the whole boyfriend thing. She said, "You're not 'going out' unless you, well, go out. The whole idea is to spend more time together. Get to know each other. But you won't be 'going out' with anyone until you're at least 16."
I cried, told her about Jacob, and told her I loved him. She got all gooshy and said, "Ohhhh, that's so cute!" and said that Jacob and I could go out when she and daddy are there too. Then she said I could invite Jacob to our picnic Saturday (tomorrow). Our first real date. Squee!
