A Little Love Story..

design 4

Do you remember your first crush? That boy in the playground that you wanted to marry one day? The boy that made you all shy and giggly? I remember him. And it now appears that Mr 5 is him.  Or was him. Sadly the romance has come to an abrupt halt after a 4 day engagement. I thought that I would at least get to primary school before Mr 5 found another lady to make him smile. I didn’t think that in the 2nd week of school, he would announce he is getting married.Let me tell you a little story about little love.

It is really quite adorable.

Miss P and Mr 5 went to preschool together. Even last year when ever we mentioned Miss P’s name he would never talk about her. Never. That should have been our first clue that he was in love. He remained very tight lipped when it came to Miss P.

Fast forward to the first week of school and Mast 5 tells us “I  just can’t stop looking at her, she is just so pretty Dad”, then wait for it….. he lets out this big almighty sigh.

My little man is in love. He has his very first crush. And it is so cute. After a bit of prodding we learn that Miss P is most definitely the object of his affection, and he loves her from afar. I ask if he wants to be her boyfriend and kiss her. “No way mum, I just like looking at her…. she is so pretty”.

And then last Friday, when we got into the car after school, he is beaming. I mean smiling from one ear to the other, he couldn’t smile bigger if he tried.

“Me and Miss P are getting married mum. She chose me over Mr O and we are getting married”

WHOA! Hold up mate…. slow down….there is a love triangle?

“And I kissed her mum”


“And she kissed me”

OH MY GOD…. kissing in the playground already? Nope, not these two. Apparently kissing in the classroom is totally the new thing in Kindergarten romance.

By this stage me and hubby are trying our best not to laugh. I mean, how sweet is it when your 5 year old proudly announces he is engaged (to a older lady no less) and he is kissing her on the cheek already. CA-UTE!!

That night we had a meet and greet night at the school. This canoodling in the classroom was the hot topic amongst the mums. Yep all the kids had reported back to the parents about the love fest in room KG.

Mr 5 remained in his loved up bubble until the following Monday. He quietly told me after school that Miss P didn’t want to marry him anymore and has now decided to marry Mr O, because she likes his hair better. Young love, it is so fickle.

Mr 5 is sad about his lost love. He still thinks she is pretty and has vowed that he will get married one day “when I am grown up like you mum”.

Do you have your own little story about little love? Do you remember your first crush?

    That’s so cute. Who knew that kindy was such a veritable hotbed of romance?! Hope he’s not too broken hearted!

      I certainly wasn’t expecting such love triangles until at least year 3 or 4!

    Aaawww so cute. Such emotions for people so small. My now Mr6 announced to me last year that he was going to marry one of the girls in his class (which amuses me in itself as his Dad and I have never married so I didn’t even know he new the word). I asked him why he chose MsL to marry and he said, ‘because she’s funny’ which I thought was lovely. It didn’t last

    I love how serious they are when they say these things! My Miss 5 told me she’s not marrying Mr T because he’s married ‘hundreds of girls already’! She’s after his big brother instead. Help! Super cute.

      We were just as surprised Malinda. But apparently love starts early. This is the only story we have been able to get out of him since starting school!

    It s so sweet. I love your little story telling. My boy who is 3, is also in love with the same girl Since 1 year. They had the same nanny for 3 years. That created strong bonds. And now they Aren t in same school but as we are friends with her parents they still see each other. She is talking about wedding. He s not. Right now. Let s see….

    I remember a similar story that was hot gossip and quite the giggle between a boy and a girl in the sandpit at kindy last year. Quite cute.

      I know. If only Mr 5 didn’t lose his curls…. he would have stood a chance with his curls… curls get the girls!

    I love kids love stories. My first love was prep and he was adorable. I kissed him on the monkey bars as I flipped upside down and my dress went over my head… very romantic.

    wow, he sounds ahead of his times compared to our 5 year old boy! I winder if mine has thoughts about other girls being pretty? Not sure! I know he did get ‘married’ at kindy last year, I guess that was his first love of sorts. Will keep my ear to the ground now he has started school! I can’t remember my first love though my mum says it was a boy named Sam.

      I had no idea he knew about all this stuff either. Was quite a surprise! They really do shock the pants off you sometimes x

    That is just too cute! It’s all cuddles at pre-primary but no love triangles I know of (yet). I’ve heard of Grade 3s asking each other to the school disco. I’m just not ready for that stage! Sounds like Mr 5 is better off – he doesn’t want to be around superficial girls that care more about a boy’s hair!!!

      March 1, 2015 at 7:18 pm

      Oh the love story is now even more intriguing. A new girl is on the scene, buying Mr 5 ice blocks at lunch if he will let her kiss him! Seriously, who are these girls haha!!
