Her First Big Crush
My five year old is boy crazy. There, I said it. I'm not sure how or when this happened, but A is boy crazy. Maybe it comes from having two older brothers and being around their friends all the time. For a while now, she's had J's best friend R in her sights. R has known her since the day she was born and is like another brother to her. But recently, my baby girl has developed her first real crush, on none other than Coach C. This all started when he let her be in the team picture after TP won the championship in Apopka. From then on, she's had stars in her eyes whenever he's around. Which, since we're at baseball all the time, is a lot. This past weekend in Auburn, she followed him around as much as she was able. He made her day Friday when he let her sit in the dug out during the game. She pulled J's cooler right up next to Coach C's chair and chatted his ear off while he gave signs to the catcher. Saturday she presented him with three brand new wiffle balls I had picked up for the team. She claims she is going to marry him when she grows up. Since he's 18, she has a lot of growing up to do! This humiliates J in the extreme. He lives in fear that she is going to propose to Coach C at any moment. I admit, the whole thing makes me laugh. A will no doubt have many crushes as she grows up. But none will ever be as innocent and sweet as this first crush. Check her out hanging with Coach C in the dug out.
