Boy Crazy at 5?

I'm not sure if this was truly my first crush or not, but it's the first one I can remember.

I was in Kindergarten and he was in my class.
Super-blond hair, almost white.  I have no idea what color his eyes were/are.  I do remember how skinny how he was.

And who his friends were.
And his name {but y'all know I don't use real names here}; I'll call him Jack.

I remember the chasing on the playground.
The getting caught on the playground.
The hiding {together} on the playground.

Let me explain...

Y'all know I grew up in the middle of nowhere, right?
Well we had tractor tires as toys on our school playground!

The tires were half buried in the sand, so there was only a semi-circle of tire exposed as if it were standing up.

But the tires were so big, and we were so small, we could scoot right into the open part of the tire and hide.
In fact, two people could get in, one on each side, heads meeting at the top in the middle.


Perfect kissing spot.
Yep! Even in kindergarten!

Makes me a little scared to send my Buddy off to school this year. But knowing Sweetpea has yet to kiss a boy at 9, puts my mind at ease a little.

Jack and I went through school together and eventually graduated from High School together.

He was my boyfriend several more times in elementary school and maybe briefly in middle school.  And there were lots of innocent kisses during those time.

Do you remember your first crush?

  1. I don't think that he was my first crush, but the first one that I remember. I was maybe six? So I don't think that's all that strange, or early. My mother is going to his wedding this weekend.

  2. I did this prompt too! So fun thinking back on my first crush. I was a little older than you and there was no kissing. (:

  3. Very sweet! (My daughter got in trouble in kindergarten for holding hands with a boy on the playground.)
