Do you remember that first crush?

The very first time a little girl or boy just seemed nicer than the others, and prettier? I remember with the Princess that it was around age 3 to 4 that a mom called me aside one afternoon, asking me if I am aware that I am going to be her SIL? It transpires that her little Tyler, age 4 and a half, has gone the Father Mark and asked him if he could marry the two of them soon. Father Mark relayed the story to her, telling her that Tyler said A would be dressed in a pretty long white dress and be as beautiful as Belle (Beauty and the Beast). Apart from the fact that I have always been able to see the resemblance, I was sort of shocked about the whole issue. Until I learned that it is pretty normal to have that first innocent crush at around the age of 4.I can not remember mine, although my mom relays many stories about me and a Ricardo who were huge friends and inseparable.

Someone in our house has his first crush. When we had our recent holiday at San Lameer, A met a school friend, Li of her's there, accompanied by her little sister, Le also 3 and a half. For Little man C it was love at first sight - he flocked around her when we met, he could not stop talking about her. Even after we returned he kept on mentioning her name. Imagine his joy when we bumped into the family at a party venue - the two bigger girls were there for a party of a school friend, and both families decided to bring the younger siblings to play at the tea garden. Her mom encouraged him to give her a hug - and here's the result:
I have to agree that he has impeccable taste!

On yesterday's post - I had a huge reaction. I will certainly attempt part 2 soon. I tweeted all the retailers, and guess what, only Woolworths came back to me, thanking me for the feedback. Goes to show, I guess.

  2.  That is SUCH a sweet picture. I think I only had my first crush in Standard 5 or something. Seems like the kids start everything so much earlier these days!

  6.  Aw that is so sweet.  J has had a few of those already.  So sweet when he tells me about it.  He is always worried that his "falling in love" with a girl will hurt my feelings.  Aaaaw

  13. So sweet! My knucklehead never really had crushes like that... but my one nephew has such a crush on a very dear friend of mine's daughter! Its very comical to watch them interact, him gazing at her and following her around.
