I think Jon and I may be in some big trouble when this sweet thing gets older. Riley has been telling me about a boy in her class that she ‘likes’. He is very cute and sweet. He is always nice to her, always wants her to play kick ball, and even gave her his jacket in class when she was cold a couple weeks ago. On Friday Riley was having a bad day. This boy saw this and left her a note to meet him outside during lunch recess. At recess she asks him why he needed to talk to her. He says he thought she should know that he loves her. She tells him I love you too, because as she put it to me “because I do.” I think this is so cute! But, she is in 3rd GRADE! I didn’t think this stuff started happening until 6th grade. I told her I thought it was very sweet, but she needed to let him know her mom said she was too young to have a boyfriend, that they could be friends. She told him yesterday. She asked if she should tell her dad. I said I didn’t know because he might shoot him (jokingly of course… well sorta).
