Princess has a crush. I am fortunate enough that she has let me in on this little secret. I will respect her privacy and not tell who it is on.
I cannot believe that this is where she is at already. That she has gone from diapers to first crushes. It makes my stomach get all fluttery.
My first thought was, "Oh Sh*t!!!! Already??" then a while later (like hours) after I had been stewing over my sweet innocent child- I realized that I was 8 when I had my first crush too.
I would have died rather than tell my parents- so I hope her telling me-- willingly is a sign of an open, trusting, and honest relationship with her.
This is unnerving territory for me. I am not sure how to navigate these waters. What I do know, is that I love her, I respect her, I will not shame or humiliate her. She is a smart, brave, courageous, authentic, amazing girl.
