Per Wikipedia, a tween is preadolescence, that is, the stage between middle childhood and adolescence in human development, in the range of 9 to 12 years old.
That's where my Pooka is, and where her father just realized she was! LOL!
I got a call at work yesterday. The middle of the conversation went something like this...
BD: Pooka has hair
Me: Uhhhh yeah
BD: I'm talking about body hair
Me: *chuckle* Mmmm hmmm
BD: Ladynay, she has hair under her arms and and and...down there!
Me: *trying to hold my laughter* I told you last year remember?
BD: It was just a little bit.
Me: A little bit LAST YEAR...it just wasn't gonna stay fuzz yah know
Me: *just to mess with him* You do know what's coming right? The body hair, eating changes, moody behavior...
Me: *no longer holding my laughter* What? It's gonna happen sooner than later. She'll be 10 in a few months.
BD: Hopefully she'll be with you when that goes down.
Me: It could happen this summer.
BD: Stop it.
Me: It could happen this week.
Me: *laughing* I'm just saying.
Me: You are going to have to deal with this DAD! *reburst of laughter*
BD: *sigh* Not right now.
That conversation was hilarious! His little angel is growing up! LOL! It's a tough pill for him to swallow. I must admit, I haven't fully digested my own pill yet. But I have accepted the fact and have had all talks the needed to be had at this point with Pooka. The birth control talk will come once her system gets going.
I wonder what BD is going to be like when she starts having real boyfriends! ROFL!
