Thus It Begins . . .

Yesterday I picked Callie and Caleb up from school, and Callie handed me a picture. It was torn out of a coloring book--a picture of Disney's Ariel and Prince Eric sitting in a little boat together (during the song "Kiss De Girl") on one side and a picture of Ariel combing her hair with a fork (a.k.a. dinglehopper) on the other side. It was very nicely colored and had a girl's name neatly printed in crayon at the top of the page. Did you catch that? A girl's name. And it wasn't "Callie" or "Katie."

I asked, "What's this?," and Callie told me that the little girl (Name withheld to protect the innocent . . . or the guilty, depending on whom you're asking.) handed it to her in the carpool line and said, "Give this to your brother." Oh my goodness!!!

So I looked at Caleb and asked who she was, and he said she was in the other kindergarten class. "Is she your friend? Is she nice?," I asked. He said yes but that she chases him all the time at recess. He said this kind-of grinning and kind-of rolling his eyes at the same time. Then he blurted, "I don't like the kissing part, though! That part can be for YOU, Callie!" Thankfully, he was referring to the picture, not the game at recess.

I just kind-of smiled to myself and left it at that. Who can blame the girl?! He IS a cutie!
