Preschool Playa

Brother talks about a particular little girl in his class often. He tells us that she's his best friend. Recently, he told us that she loves him but that she doesn't like kisses. He discovered this when he slid too close to her on the carpet and she told him not to get too close because she didn't like kisses.

Being a little gentleman, he assured her that he wouldn't try such a thing. Being his mother, I was glad to hear it.

A few days later, as I was buckling him into the car, he said, "Mom! Today at school, I got the hook-ups!"

Oh boy.

My mind starts racing. I mean, he's only four and he got the hook-up at preschool?

"What do you mean, buddy?"

"You know, I kept going HIC! HIC! and needed to get a drink of water."

Ahhh, the hiccups. Whew.


  1. ha ha ha ha!!! Thanks for the chuckle!! Too funny :)

  2. Too funny! A friend of ours K'er has already had two girlfriends this year and was totally heartbroken by his break ups! He asked Chloe if she wanted to be his new girlfriend when they were over for a playdate, and I quickly interrupted him with, "We DO NOT play that game in this house!" Thankfully Chloe hasn't been at all curious about what he meant and has no idea what girlfriends are :)

  3. K'er as in Kindergartener, since that wasn't clear :)

  4. Oh, boy! And I mean, "Oh, boy!" The best is yet to come... depending upon how you look at it... in humor and drama! I'm intrigued that the little girl has already decided that she doesn't like kisses... which, I guess, is perfect for Brother because of his hiccups and all. And his glorious innocence.

    In my world, Audrey has already seen a glimpse of the future in that both William (4) and Alex (3) are in love with the same little girl in pre-school. William, being older and more mature (!) loves quietly from afar... Alex just lays his heart right on the table. Carly is her name. But at home, they both have staked their claim... and Grandma's heart is racing!

    I think I'll be needed a drink of water!!

  5. LOL! Hilarious.

    My kindergartner told me at the beginning of the year how a boy in her class "loved" her and she tried to kiss him. I had to tell her to stop while laughing inside.

  6. hahahahaha!! Too funny! I love the things that come out of our kids mouths.

  7. Now that's a story you'll be telling for years to come!
    I found you on twitter and came over to check out your blog!

  8. I so miss Brother and his precious comments. Still think about and love his comment ...since the movers weren't going to tear my house down then they could move me next door to you all...!!
    If wishes were horses....
