@Plexia The spouse and I started calling each other "my comrade" when boyfriend/girlfriend felt too young. Clunky and pretentious, but entertaining!

I can't imagine what's going to happen when this poor girl hits puberty. I was a fairly slender kid, but once I hit 14 - hello, boobs, hips, and butt! My parents were blessedly sane about diet and exercise, but it was really disorienting to feel like I'd become "fat" all of a sudden. And it's taken me a long time to come to terms with the fact that even while eating healthfully and being active I'm going to be a bit squishier than naturally lean ladies.
