Owen has an
enormous slight crush on a girl his age that he knows from church and school. She invited him to her birthday party this year and he was so excited to go. While I was getting ready to take him to the party he asked me if he could make her a card. I gave him a piece of paper and a marker and went about my business. He asked me how to spell her name but other than that worked quietly by himself. When it was time to go he mentioned something about our phone number so I checked out what he had written in the card. Mr. Casanova apparently thought he should give her his phone number and had already written “I love you” in the card. He had also drawn flowers and balloons. He was so proud of his card and carried it proudly to the party.
I fear the teenage years!
