Kim’s post about Bear having a best friend at 2 years old made me stop & think. Does PP (who is also 2) have a best friend? Not really, but what she does have is a boyfriend (aka childhood crush). Of course I use that term affectionately (and not realistically) but there is a boy at her daycare that she is really sweet on. Whenever I ask PP who her boyfriend is, she shyly smiles & says, “Michael.” She will even pick up her play phone and pretend like she is talking to Michael. When she arrives in the morning at day care, Michael happily runs over to her & they hug (have even shared a few smooches, too!). Michael & PP have become the “it” couple in the toddler room at daycare.
Of course, I have talked to his mother about this. Apparently Michael has been bitten by the love bug just as much as PP-at home he stares at her picture & gives it kisses. When PP is not in daycare, he asks for her. I wonder if they will remember each other as their first childhood crush?
I have stumbled upon some very interesting & hysterical posts about childhood crushes. If you have a good one, send my way!
