Do you remember your first crush? I do. I was in kindergarten.
He was adorable.
Glossy brown hair and puppy dog brown eyes, fringed with thick lashes.
Unfortunately, every other little girl in the class thought he was adorable, too. Worse than that, my best friend was the prettiest girl in the class and she was the one who caught his eye.
I slipped him the "check yes or no" letter, and opened the reply with eyes squinted shut.
He checked "no".
You'd think I would've taken that lesson into the teenage years and kept it to myself when I liked a boy. But I didn't. And that's another post.
Now, my adorable little boy is 5. He has little girl friends that he likes to play with and tease. But this one is different. Sunday, he went to church with his Beamie (paternal g'ma) at a sister church about an hour's drive from here. When he came home, he told us about Children's Church and his teacher, and then...
"There was this girl. Her name is Cassidy."
"Yea? Did she talk to you?"
"No, she just winked her eyes at me."
(trying to hide a smile).."Did you talk to her?"
"No, I was too shy." ...hhmmm...
"Well what did she look like?"
"She was like one of those blonde-headed girls."
He's not going back to that church. :)
p.s. Who could resist this face?
