Is it love?

Do you remember young love? I do. I had a huge crush on a little boy in my class named Nick. He wasn’t the most popular little kid but he had glasses and at the age of 5 his brown eyes stole my heart. Now that I am all “grown” up I try to shy my children away from forming attachments to others so quickly and without reason. I want them to have a large group of friends and NEVER leave anyone out. Mikayla likes everyone but early on she showed strong attachments to certain kids in her class. Gavin on the other hand hasn’t really shown a preference to anyone. He is always a go with the flow kind of kid and doesn’t mind having other kids around but still is fine just being by him self. Recently this has all changed. My sweet little boy has fallen in love. He has the biggest friend crush on an adorable little blonde girl named Jessica. Jessica is the only person he wants to play with, he talks about her all the time, when he sees something that reminds him of her he says “oh Jessica would like that.” That little blue eyed angel has Gavin wrapped around her tiny finger. What is a mother to do? I must admit it’s not a match that I oppose. Jessica’s mother is one of my favorite people and I’ve admitted often that I would love to be apart of her family. They would never have a problem with inviting both sets of parents over, even Matt likes them. I guess at the age of four it would be a little unrealistic to start shopping for wedding dresses or booking a DJ but a mother is permitted to dream isn’t she. I always thought I would be dreaming of Mikayla’s wedding and picking out the perfect husbands for her. She has had no interest in boys. She only admitted to me once that she thinks a boy is cute. So for now Gavin will have to do and I know Jessica wouldn’t mind me tagging along as she tries on dresses and taste the cakes!

Jessica loves Gavin! She loves your whole family and talks about you guys daily, therefore I am making you honorary members of our family! I wouldn't oppose the wedding but it is not required!
