I *just* got off the phone with The Girl's "boyfriend's" mom. She called to ask if The Girl could accompany this boy's family out this weekend.
Um...I already said no!
I calmly and politely explained that to us, this constituted a "date" of sorts and we were not going to allow that. She said it was a family thing and not really a date but she did (eventually) accept my answer.
I explained to the mom that The Girl should have already thanked the "boyfriend" but she said he had asked HER to call me and maybe I'd change my mind.
