“Mrs. Mileti! I have a girlfriend, and I kissed her!” Exclaimed Jackson, one of my fifth grade boys.
“You do? How wonderful! What is her name?” I asked him.
“I don’t know, but she is my sister’s friends’s sister.” He replied.
“You kissed her, and you don’t know her name?” I asked him.
“I have a girlfriend too!” Trevor, one of my second grade boys, chimes in, adding to the conversation.
“You do too? Do you know YOUR girlfriends name?” I asked Trevor.
“Yep, her name is Savannah.” He said.
“Oh, what a pretty name, is she as pretty as her name?” I asked him.
“Yes, she’s very pretty!” Trevor replied.
“You should kiss her.” Interjects Jackson.
“I already tried that, and it didn’t turn out so well, she slapped my face when I did.” Said Trevor
Poor, Trevor! I don’t know if I should be proud of the girl or saddened for my lovelorn second grader. Hmm…maybe a bit of both. 🙂
