Things I wasn't prepared to deal with for at least 5 more years

On Sunday my cell phone rang.  I didn't know the number but I answered it anyway.  This is what I heard:

Young girl (YG): Who's this?

Me: Shannon, who are you?

YG: Daisy

Me: Hi Daisy.  What can I do for you

YG: *Giggling*

Me: Daisy, do you know who you are calling?

YG: I'm calling Codi, can I talk to Codi?


I looked at my husband and whispered, "A girl is calling our six year old."

I called Codi into the room and told him Daisy was on the phone for him. This is what followed.

Codi: *Blushing* Hi

YG: Hiiiii Codi this is Daisy

Codi: Hi (in a totally nonchalant kinda way)

YG: Whatcha doin?

Codi: Playing my new Wii game.

YG: Cool.  How are you

Codi: Good

YG: Do you know what 3+3 is

Codi: 6

YG: Oh yeah well do you know what 5+5 is?

Codi: *sighs* 10

YG: What about 100+100

Codi: 200

At this point I break in and tell Codi to maybe ask Daisy how she is doing so they can stop talking about math.

Codi: What are you doing Daisy

YG: Nothing, do you know what 500+500 is?

I told Codi to tell Daisy thank you for calling and to say goodbye and go back to play with the friend he had over that day.  They said their goodbyes and Codi went to play in the other room.

Yesterday he came home with a folded up piece of paper.  I opened it and the girl had written her name and her phone number in 6 year old chicken scratch and had passed it to Codi in class. I'm keeping that forever.  Codi said, "you know mom, so you can maybe set up a play date or something."

The whole thing was very cute.  I have to admit though, I wasn't expecting girls to start calling the house until middle school, and if we are being honest I expected his older brother to get he first phone call.  I had passed out birthday invitations two weeks prior so I'm thinking that is how the girl got my phone number.

I'm thinking of laminating the piece of paper since she wrote it in pencil.  I want to keep it forever.  I wanted to post a picture of it, because the writing, and the name is all so cute but I can't post a picture of someone elses phone number on here. 

Either way it was very cute.
