The Unwanted Wanted Boyfriend

I picked up my daughter from first grade early last week. I could tell from her giddy expression she had some big news to tell me.  "Mom.  You're not going to believe this.  I did a back flip on the cement."

"Oh great!  But you really shouldn't be..."

 "No Mom, that's not the best part.  I did it and a group of fourth graders walked by.  One of the fourth grade boys saw me and kept watching me.  Then he had to go inside, but he was holding onto the doors so he could watch me.  He was yelling, 'No!  You're the best little gymnast.  Don't leave me!'  Someone had to actually drag him inside. "

Finally, she smiles her biggest smile and says in her most insincere tone "Mom, I don't want a boyfriend." 

I casually replied, "Oh good.  Girls usually don't have boyfriends until they're at least in college."

"Oh, I know I'm too young."

"Uh-huh.  Did he say he wanted to be your boyfriend?" 

"No, but I could just tell."

Later in the week, while saying a prayer over our breakfast, Dani still hadn't forgotten about that boyfriend she didn't want. "And please bless that the fourth grader will not want to be my boyfriend because I am too young to have a boyfriend."

I'm not sure insincere prayers are usually answered, but I'm hoping this will be the exception.  

Grateful Mom Goal of the Day:  I will appreciate that my daughter is not old enough to date.

She is so cute!!! It's funny how early they start noticing the other sex. My son who is now 12 said the other day one of his freinds asked him how long he has been into girls. He told me he said "from birth"! It's true too! I think college is too early I personally like 40!!! Lol! Enjoy her, she sounds like a trip!!! Have a great Wednsday!

So cute! I hope my daughter will also not notice the opposite sex until she is at least 25-I do want her to get married eventually and give me some grand babies!

SO cute! Hopefully she'll stay that way until she's 20! :)

Have a great day! :)

So funny! I'm so relieved Goldie has stopped her crushes for a little while. At the beginning of Kindergarten year, she and her younger sister would lie in bed and girl talk about the cute boys -- yeah, a 5 y/o and a 4 y/o .... I'm so dead!)....

My five-year-old is absolutely convinced that she is marrying a little guy in our Ward. Before that she was planning to marry my grandson who is just a year older than she is. It took us a while to explain that she just couldn't marry her nephew!

LOL what a great story. I'm SO glad she's the one saying she's too young for a boyfriend. Love the prayer too :)

I had some crushes at that age...but I started getting boy crazy at age 11...oh the crushes, they ruled me.

First grade!!!! My daughter is in first grade. I'm so not ready for the boyfriend talk.

Such a precious story! I love that she thinks she is too young for a boyfriend! Sounds so wise for such a young age. What a cutie pie

And this is exactly why my husband is determined to construct a tower in our backyard. Which is where he has determined our two girls will live until marrying age. I honestly don't think he is kidding.

Ha! Hilarious! I don't have any girls to worry about - but I am afraid my boys will be the ones chasing after those innocent daughters! Great post.

Well, if I was a boy, I'd be impressed with a little girl doing back flips! I bet she was awesome! When I was little, I used to impress the boys by throwing the football just as far as they could, and being able to keep up with them in tackle football.

Scares me to death. I hope my children are ugly through high school. They can get cute again in college.
