We Already Have to Deal With This?

There's a cute little girl from Taylor's class that keeps calling him--not just once in a while, but several times a day. They will talk about nothing for quite a while until we tell Taylor that he needs to get off. They are holding up the phone line to sit in silence sometimes while they do their own thing. It's really quite funny. . . or scary . . . I don't know what to think! Aren't we too young to be dealing with this? I know he has had his eye on her for a while. One of his best friends used to like her and she liked him. Taylor actually made a beaded necklace with her name on it for his friend to give to her while they were "going out". His friend, of course, didn't want to give it to her. Eventually they "broke up" and Taylor's friend was heart broken. I don't know if she broke up with him for Taylor or what. I sure hope not. We've talked to Taylor about him being too young to have a "girlfriend". He says that they are only friends, but I still can't help but wonder. Luckily at this age, not much harm can be done. We'll have to let you know how the saga ends.

I remember having crushes on boys at that age. I don't think I ever dared to call them though. I remember one kid used to give me gifts all the time (in fact, I still have a silver coin from him from 5th grade). Anyway, I'm sure it's just innocent crushes...but you never know nowadays. Life is so much different now then it was 20 years ago.

I don't remember that long ago. But I do remember having a boyfriend at twelve. Kerrie, I still have the bracelet he gave me on my 12th birthday. Thats an antique now :) (Don't tell the grandkids). I'm sure it is the first of many little girls to have a crush on Taylor. It probably makes him feel pretty good.

I think there will be many more instances like this with your children because they are all adorable. I had crushes as well at Taylor's age and never did anything about it. Taylor's a good kid....I'm sure it is just an innocent crush. I can't believe my nephews are getting so old.

It's still cute at this age- not so cute when they hit junior high. I'm surprised the parents of the girl let her call. Taylor is going to be a little heart breaker.
