Maybe that's just the mother in me, not ready for my oldest child, my only daughter to be thinking about boys.
th grade is not about boys.
I think I hear my mother screaming in my head to not call the kettle black. I remember, in 4th grade, I had a boyfriend. Mark Gaby was his name. I'll mention it, he knows it , we all know it, if he reads this, it's only fact. Anyway, in 4th grade he was my boyfriend. I was in 4th grade, and he was in 3rd grade (mature for his age I think). For some reason, maybe it was just undying love, he gave me a gold necklace. It was his mom's I later found out, and it was the coolest necklace I remember ever seeing in my lifetime. Now, I don't remember how this all went down, but my mother found out I had this necklace, maybe I showed her, I don't quite remember, all I do recall is that she told me I had to give it back immediately! I was devastated to say the least. I don't know how I worked up the courage to, or what exactly I said, but I gave it back to him. He seemed ok with it. I mean, after all, he was only a 3rd grader.
So, back to the subject. My only daughter, thinks she's in love. And you know, with all the teenage media screaming about love in the High School Musical movies, etc. who wouldn't be thinking about it. I'm not ready for her to grow up just yet. I'm not ready to deal with heartbreak, and those kind of emotions just yet. Can't she just be my little girl? Is that too much to ask, cute little boy in the 4th grade? I didn't think so.
