When Isaac was in kindergarten there were two girls in his class who had enormous crushes on him. One day I went into the class to help with some activity and he sat at a table with one girl draped over each shoulder as they fawned over him. The expression on his face said, "I could get rid of these pests in about 2 seconds if I were allowed to be rude, but I have to be polite. I really hope cooties aren't fatal."
He regularly complained about the girls in his class being annoying. One day I asked him if he found any of them tolerable. His eyes brightened when he said, "Oh yeah! I like to play with Lydia at recess. She will play chase with us. One time she caught me, threw me on the ground, and sat on my head!" It was all innocent but pretty funny to hear.
Fast forward to last night at dinner when Diana announced two neighbor girls, one who is 17 and the other who is 16, are both gaga for Isaac, who is 13. Calypso confirmed the rumor and added, "They both say if Isaac were about 4 or 5 years older they'd be all over him!" Isaac blushed head to toe.
For the record, I will no longer find it humorous if a game of chase followed by sitting on heads occurs. The young cougars best beware of a mama bear.*
*They are actually nice girls. I just needed blog fodder. But I got my eyes open.
