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.
“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…
“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?
