A Boy in Love

Her name is Prema. She has stolen my son's heart. They have a "date" on Wednesday to go to Moe's and the movies. He wonders if she'll try to kiss him at the end of the night. I am dying a little over his immediate devotion to her.We took a road trip up a very high mountain today to help celebrate a friend's wedding to her long-time boyfriend. A very low key and laid back affair with coworkers, friends and family, there was live music and happy conversation and good food. Lucas struck up a chat with this lovely doctor (I know! A doctor! My boy is no dummy!). By the end they had plans to see a movie and dinner at Moe's. I had to ask if I could come along. He spent the entire car ride home listing all the ways she was perfect for him, how excited he was at having a first date, and nervous that I might spill his secret before he was ready to let it out: that he loves her. My heart about broke in two. He's not allowed to love any one else like that yet. Only me.

Oh, the joys of being FIVE! Every kindergarten teacher in the world knows that kind of love - so get ready, Mama! We all know that you are his rock and all others (maybe except for Grandma) have to line up behind you. So glad you shared the story. It brought back wonderful school-day memories!

I run across your blog and thought of sending you this email.

I'm Anne Stephanie Cruz, and I work for It's a site dedicated to giving useful information and advice to people who are passionate about having their own daycare business - but don't know where or how to start.

Anyhow, I was wondering if I might be able to do a guest post on your blog. It can just be a short article about child care, parenting and daycare, setting up a daycare center - its many and varied requirements - such as licensing, supplies, staffing - or really anything that you might suggest as well.

Please let me know what you think. Thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely Yours,

Anne Stephanie Cruz
