On Love and Preschool


Ashley has a boyfriend at preschool.  His name is Peyton, and they are going to get married someday.

Although it's not set in stone, because Peyton's love is conditional. I know, I know - it's sad, but true. Apparently, he told Ashley during school the other day, "If you make one more peep, I'm not gonna marry you!" When I asked Ashley what she said back to him, she told me in a hushed tone, "Mommy, I didn't make another sound."

My inner feminist balked.  But then on the other hand, I feel ya, Peyton.  I really do.  She can be a bit chatty.
Even so, I suggested she marry Mason instead.  Despite that unfortunate penguin-mimicking episode during the Thanksgiving pageant, he seems like a nice kid.  But Mason is already marrying another little girl in Ashley's class, so there goes that.  What about Jack, I wondered? 




But it doesn't matter anyway - I can tell that Ashley only has eyes for Peyton.  I mean, come on - she agreed to be quiet for him.  If that isn't the ultimate act of love by a 5 year old, then I don't know what is.

Oh i miss PreSchool days!! My girls all had little love interests at PreSchool, but nothing like my son, wow . . . he met Sasha when they both started, young, aged 2.5 at 3y.o. PreSchool. We moved 5000km away, she followed 6 months later. They continued their romance at 4y.o. PreSchool. They went to seperate schools & now they are approaching the age of 7, she is moving to America (from Australia) & they promise to email. Off to say good bye to her tomorrow. So you might have Peyton around for a lot LONGER than you imagine??!! Love Posie

Too funny! I was friends with my preschool boyfriend all the way through high school. Despite the fact that he was cheating on me with the other Sara in our class. Hehehe.

Peyton & Ashley sittin' in a tree K-I-S-S-I-N-G!
That never gets old. :)

In kindergarten I was to marry a 1st grader. His dad told us we had to wait until his son was in 2nd grade. Stupid rules!!

so timely because kate came home on tuesday saying she got "pretend married" to a boy (whose name also starts with a P) at school, how they made a "pretend aisle" and then had a picture he drew of them!

maybe because she looks so pretty with her mouth closed?
