first date???

Aug 29, 2012

Tonight my first-born daughter was asked on her very first date.


I am so happy for her to have this experience and to see her blossoming in many ways, but wow, am I unprepared for this. I knew she had turned 16 and I knew she could now be asked out for a date, I just didn’t think it would happen anytime soon. I thought I had a while to wrap my mind around this idea.

Also, this creative asking out thing is new to me. When I was dating you simply asked someone out, you didn’t have to send them on a scavenger hunt, or decorate their room, or kidnap them, or send them a hidden message in a popcorn ball. Now she needs to come up with a creative way to answer. Fun stuff going on at our house.

    Wow! Can’t believe she’s really 16, either. How fun. Is this for a school dance? Who asked her?

      She was asked to the Homecoming Dance by a nice young man from the local high school.

    Yay! So fun! The creative asking is usually just for dances, not normal casual group dates.
