My Child’s Play Date!

Today we take a new step in our house. My almost 16 year old daughter has a “play date” with her “boyfriend”! I keep calling it a “play date” and every time I do she freaks out. I love it! I know I am too cruel to her but I can’t help it.

Her “boyfriend” is coming over to our house for the first time. This is the first time she has ever had a boy over. My youngest daughter has already informed me that she will keep an eye on them and let me know everything that goes on. I don’t even have to pay her for her services, which I was well prepared to do!

My oldest daughter has already asked me if I was going to ask him a bunch of questions. This got me to thinking and last night I wrote down a bunch of questions on a piece of paper and handed them to my daughter this morning. I thought she was going to drop dead! I thought it was funny!

Here are the questions that I wrote down:
1. If you could be a tree, what kind of tree would you be?
2. What is your favorite color?
3. How much money do you have in the bank?
4. If you get my daughter pregnant how do you plan to support her and the baby?
5. What is your plan for the next 10 years?
6. If you could be a cartoon character who would you be?
7. Who do you think our next president should be?
8. What type of car do you want?
9. What is your favorite baseball team?
10. If you don’t treat my daughter right, do you think I have the right to kick your butt?

I also told her that her dad just might be cleaning his shotgun this afternoon. I think she is rethinking this having a boyfriend over to the house idea!

  1. I had a hard time getting to your blog this morning. It kept giving me the “you are not connected to the Internet” deal. But I kept trying.

    I see nothing wrong with this list. I think it’s hilarious. I also think cleaning the gun is appropriate!! Have fun and seriously, I hope it all goes well.

  2. Joy – Thanks for trying! I told my daughter I will behave myself but she still doesn’t believe me for some odd reason!!

  3. You need to ask him if he is willing to add you to his fave five on his phone. Oh yes, and you want to be added as a friend on his MySpace.

  4. I love it. I used to taunt and harass my daughter for fun too. I still do. Maybe that’s why we still get along so well. Are you going to actually do it. I would. Videotape it. That would be hilarious. I can just see the poor boy’s face. The boy walks in and there’s Dad in his easy chair cleaning his shotgun and Mom with her list of questions. Too funny.

  5. Betme – I have one better than being added to his Myspace, I have the password to my daughter’s Myspace and I get to read all her messages!

    Joan – I should have done it, but I was nice! The boy was nervous enough without my help. It was great!
