This evening as we were driving in the car, Grins said "Angel, I'll tell you who I have a crush on if you promise not to tell anyone." "Who?" she asked. He then told her about a girl in his class he really likes. Then, realizing that I had probably overheard the whole conversation, he told me as well. I said, "A crush? What does that mean?" He replied, "It means you are a little bit in love."
That was too sweet - I just had to jot it down so I can remember it forever. But it gets even sweeter. He then asked Angel who she was crushing on. She said "I'm not telling!" He insisted "But I promise I won't tell!" over and over again - but she still would not divulge her secret. Curious, tonight, while I was snuggling Angel, I asked who the secret crush was. I told her I wouldn't tell a soul (the blog doesn't count, right? So - if you are reading this, you are hereby SWORN to secrecy!) She finally let me in on the secret: Grins. "Grins?" I asked, not sure I had heard her right. "Yes," she said, "I just really love him." My heart melted. It was one of the most tender moments I can ever remember. I can't think of a greater joy than knowing that my children love one another. I am a very lucky mother!!!
