TD1 is in a Pre-K/K mixed class, so imagine my surprise when after school, the following convo took place:
TD1: Mommy, Ariel* and Belle* have a crush on Charming*.
T-Mommy: Oh really, and how do you know that?
TD1: I don’t know.
T-Mommy: Do you know what a crush is?
T-Mommy: So how do you know that they have something if you don’t know what that something is?
*a minute of going back and forth*
TD1: Okay, I do know. I just didn’t want to tell you in case you would be mad.
T-Mommy: Okay, so what do you know?
TD1: I know they have a crush on Charming because Ariel and Belle always tell Charming “I love you” and Aurora* told me they have a crush on Charming.
T-Mommy: And what does that mean? Do you know what it means to have a crush on someone?
TD1: It means you love them.
Are we there yet? I thought I had at least another 100 years before we were there. Why are we there already? Also, I googled crush and Google’s definition did NOT make this convo any easier…..we’ll go with when you like someone a lot as opposed to “a brief but intense infatuation for someone, especially someone unattainable or inappropriate.” That’s way too many big girl emotions I’m not ready for. Can we just go back to the days of cooing and baby gibberish?
*names have been changed to protect the innocent because who doesn’t love Disney characters.

I actually thought they were named after Disney characters. This is a tough one. I cringed a little reading this. 😬. Time is moving too fast. Boys are suppose to yucky right now and have cooties.

Man!!! Imagine how I felt having to have that convo. I was not ready at all for that. Do they really start having those feelings so young? We never even got to the cooties stage. 😔 But TD1 did say that she doesn’t have any crushes 😅

I’m 1000% sure the boys are oblivious.

I hope so! Because I was not ready for these girls lol 🤣
