First Crush



Conversation # 1
Me: Who did you play with at school today?
Zoë: Oliver.
Me: Did you play with anybody else?
Zoë: Yes, (naming a few other children).
I know most of the other children she’s named, but I don’t know Oliver, yet this is the one name that gets first-mention every time I ask her who she plays with at school.
Me: Why do you enjoy playing with Oliver?
Zoë: Because he’s silly and he has a little brother called Joshua, but he calls him Joshie.
Me:  You like him because he’s fun to play with and he also has brother called Joshua, just like you do?
Zoë:  Yes, but also because (in a stage whisper, cupping her hand) he’s handsome. Very handsome.

Conversation # 2
Zoë: Mommy, I know how to spell Oliver’s name (She proceeded to spell it out. Correctly, too.)
Me: Wow, how did you know how to spell his name?
Zoë: I looked it up on his cubby.

Awww - so sweet!

There´s nothing like the first little crush! My oldest fell in love when he was 4 - and he stayed in love with her for 1.5 years. She loved him back and they were adorable, doing nice things for eachother (but never kissing).

I found it amazing at the time that they managed to have this crush on eachother for so long in that age. :-)
