Several years ago, I told my daughter that she could double-date or go on group dates when she turned 15 and that she could actually date at 16. Up until now, that hasn't been a problem. Pickings are a bit slim at her school, so the dating scenario hasn't been an issue.
Make that last night when she informed me that "the boy" had asked her to go to a movie with him. My first reaction was to say, "no." Just like that. But then I remembered what I had told her several years ago. When she was about 13 and asking questions about when she could date. And I realized, a bit stunned, that she is 16, and that I really didn't have a reason to say no.
So, her dad and I said yes.
And she went on her first "official" date.
When she came home, she came into the room where I was working and told me a little bit about her date. As she walked out, I actually thought I detected a whiff of ...
doll plastic, in fact

I picked her up and sniffed her hair and remembered when tiny little hands held on to her and played with her.
