Considering Maddie is only 6 and in Kindergarten, unless you knew her, you'd never imagine that she would be going thru a breakup, or even talking about a boy being her boyfriend. That's because you haven't met Zachary. He is, in my opinion, the male version of her. They are SO darn cute together! He was a savior when she first started Kindergarten. She would cry every day I dropped her off, and heaven forbid she saw me walking around the school (I'm on the PTO Board, so I'm ALWAYS there). When she cried, he would hold her hand and pat her on the back. He is seriously, the sweetest little boy ever.
Last week however, they broke up. Let me walk you thru our week:
Doug: Steph, Maddie hasn't talked at all since she got home, will you see what's wrong?
Me: Maddie, what's wrong, you seem sad?
Maddie: Nothing (with pouty face)
Me: Honey, what's wrong?
Maddie: Zachary and I broke up. He's not my boyfriend anymore, we're not even friends.
Me: (with shocked look on my face) WHY NOT?!?!?!
Maddie: He kissed Katie on the playground.
Me: (Holding back the laughter) Kissing isn't good Maddie, did you tell him that he's not supposed to be kissing girls?
Maddie: (Yelling) He's only allowed to kiss me!!! He used to hold my hand and kiss my cheek, I told him he can't anymore. He kissed her, like, 10 times!
I have a feeling her teen years are going to give me gray hair. On the other hand, she informed me last night that they're good now. He promised to never kiss Katie again. I'm going to let my husband explain that kissing boys isn't something she needs to make a habit of. Especially at 6!
