So lo and behold my surprise when my own daughter informs me on the way to school one morning that W (her little male friend) can’t make his mind up if he likes her, A (one little female friend) or A (another little female friend). Alise said, “So I just told him, ‘W, you’re gonna hafta make up your mind because I need to know!’ He changes his mind every day and I’m just sick of it!”
Talk about left field! Where did that just come from? I thought we were listening to the radio!?
And Love Squared was born.
Now, there’s something you need to know about this whole situation. All four kids are in the same class. All three little girls’ names begin with the letter A. Two of the girls are blonde; one is brown. One is a cheerleader. One is a wanna-be-cheer leader and I’m not quite sure about the other one. One is loud and bossy (she takes after her mother) and the other two seem to be rather quiet (although I heard one of them had to pull a horse shoe the other day, too, for the first time). I believe all three girls carry pink backpacks and love their stuffed animals. Two girls are already five; one is still four. The main heart throb is five, too.
That W! He’s definitely a womanizer!!
Why, just yesterday morning, Alise was whining about the outfit that I had picked out for her (my turn to pick) and said, “Mommie, nobody’s going to like me if I wear that.”
Listen here, Little Sista!
So then I proceeded to give Alise her very first lesson in love.
Say it Loud, wear it proud, Honey!
No, I actually told her that it didn’t matter what she wore or what she looked like on the outside because what really mattered was what her heart looked like on the inside. The heart always has to be in the right place.
And you can just guess how well that went over.
