Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

My youngest daughter came home and said she has a boyfriend. Since she is in 4th grade, I asked her what does this means. She said that they play basketball together. She also informed me that her two friends in class has a boyfriend too but it is with the same boy. I asked how they can have the same boyfriend. She said well he is bringing both girls to the dance today. Oh is all I could say. What does one say? I did encourage her to tell her dad this news. So, she decided to tell him quickly on the phone. I think some things are better left for the dad to handle.
