We thought we had time…

We thought we had a few more years until it all started.

The love notes.  Names of boys doodled on scrap pieces of paper.  Talk about boyfriends and girlfriends.

“She’s only in Kindergarten,” I thought, naively.  But I had no idea how early it started.

I thought I had plenty of time before my hair started really turning white.

We thought we had a few more years until dad had to dust off the shotgun to ward off potential suitors.  (Kidding, people.  We don’t even own a shotgun.  Yet.)

Apparently, we were wrong.

  1. Isn’t it amazing how young it starts??! My daughter – at 6 – was going on and on about how “all the kids say that J. and G. are lovebirds for each other” – and was trying to be their matchmaker! I just couldn’t believe it! (-:

  2. This is terrifying! Asher, at eight, still has no interest in girls. I guess I just assumed it would be the same with Amelia. By sharing this, you have ensured that I will never get a full night’s sleep again!

  3. OMG! AAAAHHHH! I would be freaking out!

    We haven’t had this at all, though Maddie really is the one with all the “boyfriends”.

  4. Ack! No idea how I would handle this! Although I DO remember having some pretty good crushes in kindergarten. So I guess it all makes sense…

  5. I have a 5yr old little girl; but she’s in pre-school because of her late bday. Anyway, one day after I picked her up from school (back when school first started) she gets into the car and says “Mommy! I made a new friend today! Will you call HIS mommy and see if HE can spend the night?” I was all “Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Girl… Back up!! HIS mom??!” And she was all “Ya, he’s my new boyfriend!” {sigh} She’s 5!!!

  6. Holy crap!! You are SO not supposed to deal with this now!

    I am still crossing my fingers and thanking my lucky stars that the daughter isn’t boy-crazed.
