Evenings on HVFH are reserved for thing that keep us ‘sane’. We post stuff like movie reviews, projects to keep kids busy, tips to keep things running smoothly in your life, book club, even drink recipes.
This topic has me going a little insane. But finding out what you think may help. Getting answers to the questions in my head always helps.
My daughter has her first official crush. But its not just that…
She’s only three.
Is that too early?
Should I be worried?
I remember having a crush on a boy in kindergarten. I’m fairly sure I giggled a lot when he was around and hoped he’d pick me for a kick-ball partner the next recess. It was harmless. But girls who had hard crushes seemed to be super boy crazy as they got in to their teen years. That’s what has me worried.
My baby girl for sure blushes when this little tot is around. She told her daddy she ‘loves him’. And she woke up from a nightmare the other night saying she didn’t want this boy to leave. Oh dear. We could be in for a long boy-crazy road with this one.
But her crush has me thinking.
Should I have a crush?
I was at a party with some women this week talking about my boy crazy baby. We got to talking about our own crushes.
One of my friends loves Bon Jovi.
Another loves Rod Stewart.
How about Edward from Twilight?
Then there’s the cute doctor, a neighbor, even a friend’s husband.
Well, I don’t have a crush. Is that weird? Should I? Do you?
I remember crushes. It is fun to have a tickle in your tummy. I guess I’ve just never thought of it since being married. I’ve never been a big fan of ‘famous’ people. My crushes are based a bit more on personality.
So, how do I go about finding a crush?
