Oh yes... something happened as Megan was getting ready to turn 6... she started to figure out boys. I know, I know - 6 and boys - what's up with that???? Although in reality, I was happy she wasn't one of the girls talking about her "boyfriend" in pre-K.
Well, how did this begin? Around Valentine's Day, her school had a sweetheart dance - her Daddy escorted her! But while she was there, he was cut in on by a younger man....
Needless to say, her Daddy's heart about fell out of his body. But I did assure him that Kaleb is very sweet boy from a great family. His mom is my co-room mom. Tom was a bit floored by his awesome manners when he asked to dance with Megan.
But shortly after that she made it clear - that her heart belonged to another.... Colton.
Colton is her best bus buddy - at least that was my definition. But alas, a mom's understanding of these things is so limited. Colton, Megan explained, is her very best friend. According to her, he's so much fun and makes her laugh, and he laughs at her jokes (this is very important) - they have so much fun together that evidently they have begun planning their wedding.
I was pleased to hear that since Colton's mom and her mom live in the same neighborhood, that they were planning on living in a house in the middle so that we could each see them and come babysit whenever we wanted. Then I got the picture.... no literally - THE picture...
aaauuuuggghhhh.... talk about your life passing before your eyes!
Oh then it was the fessing up - that Colton kissed her on the bus. After I inwardly stopped freaking out about that one - it was to find out that it was on the hand - "like a gentleman, mom!"
In the car a few days ago, Megan told me that Colton was her best friend and then asked, "It is ok to marry your best friend, right?" I explained to her that she had a LONG time to wait before she could really get married -but that yes, that was the way to do it! She's determined to wait! So for the next 20 years we'll be finding fun things to do to meet in the middle. Thankfully colton and his mom are only an hour north of us. We already have a playdate scheduled for spring break!
I knew that the day we started school life would seem like it was moving at warp speed... and it is!
