Maybe They Are Listening After All

Last night, while eating dinner, Wonderwoman began to tease Supermangirl about a phone call that she had just received from a boy in her class.
Wonderwoman: So, do you like Avi?*
Supermangirl: He's OK.
W: Is he like, your boyfriend or something?
S (annoyed): No!
W: Well, maybe he could be your boyfriend. Is he handsome?
S: I don't know. What difference does it make?
W: Because you want a boyfriend who's good looking.
S: Yeah, well, that's not the only important thing. He also has to be smart and nice and treat you with respect.
W (chastened): That's true.

Is it possible? Could it be that all of my lectures are not totally in vain?

That's adorable.
I don't think our lectures are ever in vain. Just talk!

Yay Supermangirl. And now they've both got the message.

Good chizuk for me- thank you.

I do not have children, so I cannot relate. However, I still enjoyed the story.

Loved this! There is hope!

Whenever I try to talk with my girls about boys, they roll their eyes and groan!
