So my Kira has been I N L O V E with this kid at her school. Ever since last year when their class went on their 8th grade DC Trip. They got to hang out, and they sat next to each other on the plane, they shared a tapioca for desert- I know, totally true love!
So now their in High School and Kira has been a wreck about this kid, who we'll call Little T, since Tod calls himself the Big T.
Little T has been interested in Kira but thought he liked this other girl named.uhm, Shelli...
So Kira would spend days and hours texting Little T and one night he told her that he liked both her and Shelli. Kira was heartbroken. Extremely hurt, she held it together, held her head high and made sure she laughed and had a good time when he was around, made sure she didn't show that she was crushed.... I thought that was cool since I would have been in the corner crying.
Now it's about a month later and they have spent time together, they continue to text each other every second of the day, and he has "asked her out"... what that means to us that are no longer 15 years of age? It means they are going out! duh!, It means they are boyfriend and girlfriend.
I picked her up from school yesterday and I was so excited to et her in the car and talk to her. She is just so happy right now, she is all smiles, and she just thinks he's the SCHIZNIT! We all can relate to that!!! we talked and talked and then, there was silence followed by this:
Kira: "Mom, I don't know what it is, but I just can't eat anything, I haven't been hungry since, like, last Thursday! Like I have NO APPETITE AT ALL.... What do you think it is?"
She looked at me with these big scared eyes, and it was all I could do to keep a straight face.
MOM: "Kira, that is called 'BEING IN LOVE', you can eat now!"
