Keeping An Eye On The Situation


Twin girl got a necklace from Nick the other day.

A gift.

Her friends informed her that
"those diamonds aren't real".


Really now.


Twin boy's take on the subtleties of
courtship:

"If a boy teases you,
that means he likes you.

And if a girl asks you to chase her,
that means she likes you."

This pretty much sums up love in the 5th grade.

And yet apparently Nick seems not so subtle.

hm.

Hahaha, that's hilarious! "Those diamonds are not real!" hahahaha :)
Eli would kill me if he read this, but I remember when he was in about 5th grade, he took my bottle of "exclamation" perfume and gave it to a girl he liked, hahaha!

Good graphic for the subject. Ah, first love. Even at that age someone wants to put a damper on a joyful moment huh.

haha! I can just see him foraging for something to give her :-)

I remember exclamation! It was so cool and came in a bottle with an exclamation point built in, haha.

I think I like Nick and his lack of subtleties.

That is sooo funny! When Eli was in about ninth grade, I complimented a friend of his on an arty silver band she was wearing. As the words left my mouth, I realized, I had one very similar, even exactly like it. I forgot about it, but later, when he bought her one from the silversmith at the county fair, the "placeholder" ring reappeared in the dish on my dresser. :o)
