Breakin' them up is hard to do!

My son, Nolan (the ninja) is in Kindergarten. He's 5. He is hilarious. He just is. The other day, he comes home, all pissed off. And yes, this is word for word. Nolan is very articulate when he speaks.

Me: Nolan, what's wrong, buddy??
N: WELL, today I found out that Jacob and Allison are Boyfriend and Girlfriend! (kids in his class)
Me: So, what's wrong with that??
N: WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT?? (giving me the "Mom, are you stupid", look) What's wrong with that is that you aren't aloud to have a boyfriend or girlfriend until you are 16. THAT'S what's wrong with THAT!
Me: Nolan, just because that's the rule in OUR house doesn't mean that's the rule for everyone.
N: Well, it doesn't matter anyway. I tried to break them up. And I won't stop trying until it works.
Me: How did you try to break them up?
N: I told Jacob that Allison kicks her cat all the time.
Me: Did he believe you?
N: No. But THEN I told Allison that Jacob throws up on his dog.
Me: Oh, I bet THAT did the trick!
N: Nope, they are still boyfriend and girlfriend. I will try again tomorrow.
