8/25/14 – Day 211: First Crush

For the first time, it appears that one of our children has a crush.

It’s way too early for such a thing, but it is awfully cute.

In an effort to protect the innocent, I won’t use names. But here are the clues:

  1. He came downstairs after bedtime one day last week and asked you to say his crush’s name. He corrected you – you missed it barely- and then he bounded back upstairs, grin firmly planted on his face.
  2. He asked today if it was okay to love a friend.
  3. He started asking us to help him brush his hair.
  4. He mentioned that she gave him three stickers at school today, and she only gave him stickers (nobody else).
  5. He suggested getting her some kind of a treat to say thank you.
  6. They played tag at recess.
  7. He’s being very sweet and complimentary and affectionate and all ‘I love you’ with us and his siblings – like he’s come in contact with new feelings of affection for the world that he must have an outlet for at any given moment.

In a court of law, I do believe that he would be convicted of crushing. Don’t you?

Now, to make sure he doesn’t get hurt. 🙂 #HelicopterParents
