"It looks like E might have her first boyfriend, a little boy called Louis, he came for dinner and a play tonight."
I wasn't entirely sure how to respond so went with,
She then said,
"His parents are friends of ours - they run the Willow Tree."
I didn't say it but I thought,
Not only does my daughter have her first boyfriend but his father is the landlord of my local pub! So, that would be the same man that has taken my bar orders for the past few months. The same man who I have had many a drunken, and very possibly one sided, conversation with!
I'm not sure how I should feel about this?
I don't want my little girl to grow up and, I certainly, don't want her to grow up this quickly!
She should be out making daisy chains, skipping and playing with dolls - she shouldn't be having boyfriends!!!!
And my ex-wife shouldn't be friends with the landlord of my local!
And what exactly does, "and a play" mean?
