Do you know where your seven year old is right now? I know where ours is. Our seven-year-old son, Daniel, is at the movies right now. With a friend. A friend that’s a girl. I don’t know what to think about that one. I would like to think that this is an innocent trip to the movies, and that he isn’t interested in girls yet, but I am starting to wonder. You see, this isn’t the first time that he has hung out with her. The first time was halloween. Here they are:
Yes, Harry and Hermione. I’ve got to say, Daniel made a great Harry. Daniel has been reading the Harry Potter books, and is really into them. He teamed up with Hermione and several other kids from church and school to go trick or treating.
So tonight, he is at the movies with her and another boy from his class (and her mother). Surely, she is just a friend that happens to be a girl, right? This is not Daniel’s first date. Right?
I think they are just friends. After all, Harry and Hermione are never more than friends in the books.
