He came home one day and said, "Mom something strange happened at school today."
I asked, "What was it?"
He said, "A 6th grader invited me over to eat lunch."
I said, "Did you go?"
He said, "Ya...but it was odd because I remember when I was in 2nd grade she stole money out of my teacher's jar."
I said, "Ya that is odd."
A few days later Mica told me this same girl has been giving him small toys.
I said, "Let me see them. Did you ask her where she got them?"
He said, "She didn't steal them Mom. At least she said she didn't. I think her giving me toys is a little much! I'm really glad she's going to middle school next year. People are starting to say things."
I asked, "What do you say when people say things about her liking you?"
He said, "I just ignore them. I run off and play. Usually it's during recess."
It sounds like he has a good head on his shoulders.
I was going to say something to his teacher when I was up there to read to the class on April Fool's Day. Things were hectic. I'll say something if it gets out of hand.
Do you remember your first crush? I liked this kid Matt that had heart problems. He was so little. I felt bad for him because he had to stay in for recess. I talked to him a lot because we were in a special help group for kids that struggled with academics. I would have never had the guts to tell him I liked him, nor would I give him small toys.
