Encouraging Words

It's amazing when my 5-year-old comes home talking about the history behind MLK day. When I was in Kindergarten, we learned our color...

His first crush

My son never has a problem finding a pretty girl. They chase him and he loves it. He's five and such a little ladies man.

Today was his first day of Kindergarten. I didn't cry either..as he's so confident and ready to start school. It made it easier for me.

This after noon when I picked him up, I asked the usual questions to inquire about his day. Open ended questions that led to conversation vs yes or no questions.

Me: "What did you do on the playground today?"

Little T: "Chased girls..." (with a smile) "I looooove to chase girls!"

Me: "Any in particular? How about the girl who sits next to you? Ashlee?"

Little T: "Ooooo. She's so pretty mom. I don't want to come home. I just wanna be with her right now!"

Me: (eyebrows up) "really?"

Little T: "Oh yeah, I can't wait to go back tomorrow to see her. She's just so pretty mom."
And he continued, "And she grabbed me when we left to hold on to me. She grabbed my arm, and my back pack and my legs!"

Me: (thinking they all had to hold hands on the way out to pick up)
"so did everyone hold hands to walk out to car pool?"

Little T: "Oh no. She just grabbed me and it was so much it gave me an owie! She hurt me! But she's so pretty."

Oh man...I'm already in the midst of puppy love at 5 years old. What's it gonna be like when he's 17?

"Mom, she hurt me...but it's okay cuz she's sooooo pretty?"

Am I in trouble or what?
