A Crush

Had this conversation with Claire yesterday morning as I was combing her hair:

Claire: "Mom, what does it mean when you have a crush on someone?"

Me: "Well, I guess it means that you REALLY like someone." After seeing the funny look on her face, I continued with "Why? Do you think you have a crush?"

Claire: With a sheepish grin and giggle, "Yes"

Me: "What's his name?"

Claire: "It's Corbin...he's so cute."

Me: "So you really like him?"

Claire: Grins all gone and totally serious, "No mom, I *LOVE* him...I really love him."

Me: "Are you going to tell him that you like him?"

Claire: "I really want to, but I'm afraid he'll faint."

All of this from a 6-year-old....oh dear, we're in trouble! ;-)

Heehee, oh my! Yes, it's frightening for mommies when the little ones start to talk like this! Isabelle used to tell me that she was certainly going to marry her friend Ben, but she had not told him yet. Oh, dear!
