In Chapter 14 at the end I noticed that it is really weird that Dill just goes and sleeps( in the same bed) with Scout. That is really weird and they are always saying that they are engaged and he kisses her when Jem is not looking. He also says"Scout, let's get us a baby." (pg 143) I just can not believe that he asks her this and is even thinking about it when he is so young. So I was wondering what everyone thinks about this and where their relationship will last?

Yeah, I too think that it is weird that they sleep in the same bed. As for the baby...I'm not completely sure he even knows what he's talking about. For example: I was babysitting to a four year old one time and she started talking about her "boyfriend" and how they had broken up. (remember these kids are four years old) I asked her why they had broken up and she replied to me that she dumped him "because she didn't want to get pregnant". I thought that it was hilarious, but obviously she didn't really understand what she was saying. I know that Scout and Dill are a little older than four, but I still don't think that they don't completely understand what they are saying. They are just being kids. Although they should know better than to say/do inappropriate things. And I don't know where all this petty romance will go, I guess that we will just have to continue reading to find out!

I think it is absolutely crazy that they sleep in the same bed. It completely gives off the wrong message. It also makes me wonder where they even got the ideas that they talk about. When I was in fourth grade I still thought that the stork delivered babies! I know that they are in 1st grade... but they still shouldn't know about that! psh... crazy

Haha loopfruit and princess Ariel. Interesting story you got there loopfruit! I also think it is very wierd and extremely crazy that they sleep in the same bed! As loopfruit said, I don't think he even knows what he (dill) is talking about when he says that they should make a baby! I mean what! Woa! Where in the princess nylons did that come from! I think they are still extremely young to understand and figure out anything, and it is more or less a joke than anything! As for the romance....who knows where that will go! Appearently Dill thinks it's going to go somewhere, if he already is planning or ready to have a kid! I honestly am not sure what will happen. It will remain a mystery until stated in the book. Which I hope is not too long from now because I am getting sick of this! I just want to know!

I would like to start out with saying that loopfruit needs to pick her babysitting jobs better because that story is psycho! Back to the question; I to think it is peculiar that they slept together however; they are just kids. From what I can tell they don’t even know about “where babies come from” A.K.A. sex. I believe the whole baby thing and looking into the future is just a case of kids wanting to grow up to fast. This is just apart of every childhood that most likely will blow over.

This is such a funny post. I agree with the last to peeps. THey don't know that those types of things are considered inappropriate. They're just little kids. Relationship...that's so funny. I wouldn't consider what Scout and Dill have as a realtionship. It's more like cute puppy love.

Haha Carl.....puppy love! That actually makes sense. They are so young that there technically isn't a relationship. Not a real one anyways. It quite possibly could be called puppy love! Smart one Carl!
