I posted a few days ago that Micaela and her good friend MacKay (a boy) have been caught kissing each other.
Well yesterday, we were driving home from the mall together as a family. Matt was informed of this show of affection through my blog, apparently. So he brought it up in the car ride home. He asked Micaela what was this stuff he was hearing that she and MacKay had been kissing. And then they had a conversation about it, and how it's okay to hold hands and to love MacKay, and that he's a good kid and we really like him, but that we don't kiss him. After Matt's council, this is how Micaela responded: (exact words---and remember how expressive and enthusiastic she talks)
"Yuck, kissing is so gross. I think it's the most disgusting thing in all the land. I can't believe I used to think it was so romantic!!!"
So case closed. Her Dad talked to her about it, and luckily she now apparently thinks that it's gross. Hopefully she'll continue to think it's gross for many, many more years! I'm scared to have teenagers--YIKES!
