Her boyfriend

As a kid, I had a huge capacity for memorizing. So the note home about re-reading books to "increase understanding", I don't push Lauren very hard because if she reads something twice, she's memorized it.

She's also memorized most of the songs on the radio. I listen to a Top 40 station, so really there are not all that many songs, and they get played over and again. Today she was singing:
When you're gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you
When you're gone
The face I came to know is missing too
When you're gone
The words I need to hear to always get me through the day and make it ok
I miss you
Avril Lavigne

"That song makes me think of Stephen."

"Stephen?"

"From my class?"

"Oh ok."

"He is my boyfriend now."

"Huh."
