Puppy Love

Maddie has come home with love letters from four different boys in her class.  It's so adorable how she handles it, too.  She comes home and says, "Mom - it looks like I may have another secret admirer..."

"Oh yeah?  Is it really a secret, or do you know who it is?"

"Well - I know who it is already."

"Oooooh!  Do you like this one?"

"Well, not really in that way - but I think it's nice that he likes me."

I'm waiting for the day she comes home with a letter from the boy that she adores. I think that reaction will be my favorite.

Anyway, I wanted to share two of my favorite notes.

#1 - Maddie you smell like a flower. XOXO - Gros why did I write that?

Awesome because it was done in classic second grader fashion.  Love and embarrassment tied into a one line sentence.

#2.  Dear Madelyn, You are nice and pretty and carrying for others.  I like how you write stuff in your journal and I hope you love this letter and I wonder how you got it. And you are really nice to others and look on the back.

I love you!

Okay, now number one was unbelievably funny - but how incredibly sweet is number two?!  This kid is waaaaay beyond his years in knowing what to look for in a girl.

I found out today that this letter was given to her from the boy in her class that is often in a wheelchair.  He has some sort of muscle difficulty and in Maddie's words "sometimes he just falls down."

When I asked Maddie if she had a crush on him - she gave me the usual response "I don't really like him in that way - but I'm glad we are good friends and it's nice that he likes me.  He always asks me to push him in his wheelchair and I think that's really fun."

Be still my heart - my daughter is everything I've always hoped she would be.  What a sweetheart!

What happened to Oliver?? I love her kind response. Not only does #2 know what to look for in a girl, he knows what to say TO one!
