Today Ryan came home with some interesting news. He got a girl’s phone number! Apparently “A’Leesiya” was in his 4th grade class. They aren’t in the same class this year for 5th grade, but he says hi to her at lunch every day. And she asked Ryan’s friend Michael if it’s OK to have Ryan’s phone number. He asked Ryan, and he said yes!
Right now it’s 9:00 PM at night. He has been playing Fortnite with her (virtually) for hours. He rushed through dinner just so he could get back and play some more. I completely get it and understand how he feels. Coincidentally, the 1st girl I ever went on a date with was in 5th grade as well.
I am so excited for him, and yet so nervous. I know she is likely just one of many girls who may break his heart. I hope that isn’t the case. But regardless, I hope he enjoys the time he spends with her and learns more about himself and relationships in the process!
