Lydia has made it known to us that she has her first crush on a boy. We were driving home from running errands last week when all of a sudden she admitted to me she liked a boy. A boy named Matthew(he’s in her preschool class and in our ward)! She even went as far to admit to me they were going to get married. I asked where and she told me the wedding would take place in the temple. While telling me this big news, she was giggling too. Grinning from ear to ear. I tried to play it cool. Not to tease or make a big deal, because I want her to tell me this kind of news for the rest of her life! Since then she has told me several times she likes Matthew, that he is a very nice boy. I tell her I think he’s nice too. We even went to a little preschool parent teacher conference today where her teacher remarked how she noticed Matthew and Lydia seemed to sit by each other a lot lately. I am thinking this might be a little more of Lydia’s doing than Matthew’s. 🙂
And so it begins, crushes and giggling about boys. I am just happy she lets me in on the secrets so I can giggle about them with her!
