What I learned this week:
Having had three daughters, the childrearing years my husband and I faced were filled with lots of drama, plenty of boy-crazy moments.
As they've had only sons (so far), I thought Megan and Preston might escape the thrills, chills, and tear spills associated with the crazy crushes on the opposite sex. Mostly because I didn't think boys were as crazy about girls as girls are about boys. I thought concerns about cooties — as well as indifference to cuties — was par for the course for males under the age of, oh, maybe 14 or so.
Then I saw something yesterday that changed my mind.
Mac and I walked to pick up Bubby after school yesterday. Bubby and his classmates ran around while parents mingled or talked to the teacher — Megan, my daughter and Bubby's mom, whom I wanted to touch base with before heading back home with her sons. Mac joined the big kids, and as I waited, I caught the following, a foretelling of what Megan and Preston have in store:
So I admit I was wrong: Boys clearly get girl crazy — and far earlier than I ever would have imagined.
Thank you for reading! Enjoy your weekend!
How old were you when you had your first crush and who was it on?
