Baby Crushes and Love Letters

One day, my 5-year old son came home holding a bond paper with the most delightful drawing.  I thought it was his personal artwork…. until I saw the text on the upper right  hand side of the paper.

The first “love letter”

A“, I called to him from the dining table where C and I were doing homework, “did you make this?”

“NO!”, he answered indignantly.

“Then who did?”, I inquired.

“______________ gave it to me!” he piped back.

C and I started laughing.  How adorable!  His first “love” letter from his classmate.  It’s so cute!!!

I told my husband about it and we had a good laugh around the dining table while my husband reminisced about his first crush in kinder.

About 2 weeks later, A came home… clutching another letter.  The envelope carried instructions to open and the letter had two sides, one of which looked like this…

A page from the second "love" letter.

A page from the second “love” letter.

“What’s this A?”,  I asked.

“It’s a letter from __________”,  he said a little sheepishly.  It was another “love” letter and from a different classmate this time!

But he seemed a little huffy…. so with C giggling uncontrollably in the background, I asked him “What’s wrong?”

He answered quietly: “She gave it to me in front of my crush, ____________(another girl again).  I’m shy.”

*Toink*  There goes my jaw,down near my toes again.

Even as I was resisting the urge to tease my little man, a single thought was running through my brain: “A, please don’t grow up too fast.”


What about you?  When did you get your first crush?

  1. Oh this is so cute! They do grow up so quickly. My daughter is just 1 year 3 months and I can’t stop myself from thinking about the time when my daughter goes out dating, having crushes and having a boy friend.


    • My daughter turned 9 this year and I’m STRUGGLING really hard to keep a straight face when she talks about crushes. I think it’s even harder for my husband. It’s going to be hard to let go.
