My daughter discovers the telephone

Published to Blog on 29 Aug 2007

My 9-year-old daughter just came into my office and said, "Dad, I was talking to my friend on the phone for 40 minutes. Can you believe it?"

I replied, "You are getting more and more like your mother every day."

    Uhh ohh, you know what comes after the discovery of the phone?  Gossip.  And after that?  Boys.

    I'll ignore that comment about boys. I will opt to remain ignorant for as long as possible. :)

    Funny line, Dad.  

    My daughter is nine, but I'm trying to be proactive with her about boys.  Whenever I get the opportunity and she says something like, "that boy is really weird," I tell her ALL boys are weird and they grow up to be pigs.  (A friend of my wife likes to say "All men are pigs.")
