First crush...


I have been absolutely dying to tell this story. But I have to be careful. Harmony will not be very happy if she knows that I posted this! She still has not forgiven me for telling people that she got in trouble when she was in 1st grade! But it is too cute and I just HAVE to share....

When my friend and I were arranging the babysitting schedule for this summer, my only concern was Harmony and James. They were in the same school class and the same church class. There was a lot of flirting going on and I knew she had a crush on him. She denied it but you can just tell.

So the first few days were fine. They all played together and there was some flirting but not too much.

A couple of days ago, Harmony and James were on the couch each playing a Nintendo DS. He leans over and tells her that he has a crush on her. He then asks if she likes him. She replied, "no". So he asked her who she does like, and she told him no one. He asked her, "well why can't you like me then?" She just said well I have my reasons.

A little later they all head out to the park. I came out later with Ivan and Ethan and Sydney (James' lil sis who is Harm's age also) are all upset. I asked them what the matter was, and they said Harmony and James wouldn't play with them. They kept running off together. Sydney was not happy so she started teasing them. Harmony went over to talk to him and they spent about 10 min on a bench sitting and talking. They spent the rest of the afternoon back on the couch.

The next morning, Harmony told me what happened between her and James. As the curious Mom that I am, I asked her what her reasons were. She just looked and me and said "Mom!" iwth an exasperated voice. I asked her once more and she said,
" I was just too embarrased to tell him yes!" I was surprised and she just said, "forget it, this conversation is closed."

So the past few days, if Harmony leaves the room, James wants to know where she is and what she is doing. If Harm and Sydney are whispering he wants to know what is going on. Oh so much drama. I can't believe this kind of thing is starting already!

I tried to get a picture of them, but James doesn't like having his picture taken. He has a radar if the camera comes out. So I am posting the pic anyway, even though it isn't very good and Ethan's head is in the way.

I am so not ready for this kind of thing! She actually asked if he could spend the night!

Wow. T.J. still thinks girls are "blech" and have cooties. If you ask him who he's going to marry, he still says "Mom." I'm glad we are not anywhere near this stage yet!

that is so cute. I am so glad I am not there yet with mine. I guess I only have a few years though. It thought I would have more.

It's so funny that you caught her eyes looking at him! I know what you mean though. Crushes, drama, growing up, all really stressful things! It's good that she can talk to you about it though and that she is still embarrassed to admit her crush. He's quite the forward guy!!

Yeah I have to agree with Janice, that's pretty strong for a boy that age to come out and admit he likes her! Watch out! It's cute, but it sounds like you're going to have to start talking a lot with her about "things" already! (unless you have!)yikes!!! It's cute though, good luck!

Just wait, it gets better!!!!!!

You know, I seem to remember telling you a few things about my own daughter and you saying, "I'm soo glad I don't have to deal with that yet!" And my response, I'm sure, was, "you will".

Janice is right, it's good that she'll talk to you! Don't lose that, you'll need it! I'm not LOL....I'm laughing on the inside!
