Do you remember your first crush? The first time you knew someone liked you?

Today the lil one came home from school, dropped her book bag on the floor and out of her bag, unleashed a large box of chocolates.

Isn’t that the cutest thing!?! A twelve year old boy went through the trouble of wooing lil Burs. You know, he saved up his pocket money (though she heard that he had to borrow money from his twin brother to get it).

It is all so adorable, I don’t know what to do with myself. Luckily, the young one isn’t interested in anything other than a friendship. Which pleases her dad to know end. But I think that this, as a first encounter with crushes and such, is the sort of amazing memories everyone should have. And here’s hoping that, when she’s finally interested in anything to do with dating, that she’ll have more of these lovely displays of affection.

Good god, I’ve become such a softie. It’s a official – my cynical New York side has died.
