Apparently, there is much talk of love happening these days around The Kidling’s kindergarten classroom.
Seriously, kids, it isn’t even February. Clearly Hallmark has not yet impressed on you the importance of saving up your love (and your money) for that one big day next month.
Thank freaking goodness.
But, as usual, I digress.
The Kidling was sitting at the kitchen table a few days ago when she began to tell me the rules of love (clearly parroted from a teacher), interjecting kindergarten for a little kick.
“If you fall in love at school, you don’t tell. No one falls in love at school. Cam* is in love with Emma. Clara is in love with Max. Jane and Jill are so best friends that they are close to being in love.”
“(shrugs) You could just wait and meet more people and then find someone to fall in love with.”
Um, yeah. A few more people might not be a bad idea. You’ve got to see what’s out there, kids.
* As usual, names have been changed to protect the innocent. And because I don’t remember.
