No Kissing in Kindergarten

When I picked up Noah yesterday, he had had a pretty good day. I had emailed the teacher warning her of his "antsiness" and she was kind enough to send a note home. He did pretty well but was a huge distraction in the office when he couldn't go out for recess. I will have to figure something out for tomorrow.

However, the Kylie-Noah saga continues. This is the way the conversation went.

"Mommy, Kylie really liked my cast"

"That's great, honey"

A few minutes later

"Mommy, Kylie kissed me on the cheek"

I couldn't help but laugh at the visual

"Mommy, I kissed Kylie on the cheek back...but she did it first."

"Noah, no kissing until you're 17"

"Or when you're a grown-up"

"That's right"

"But, Mommy, you can't kiss boys"

"That's right, you only kiss girls...but not until you're 17"

"But I can kiss you"

"Yes, you can kiss your family"

"But Daddy and Aaron are family, and they're boys"

"Noah...no kissing anyone who is not your family until you're 17"

"Okay, Mommy"

A few minutes later

"Mommy...it's okay if I kiss Kylie because I'm going to marry her someday"

Sigh

I think I need to email the teacher to let her know there is kissing going on. In Noah's kindergarten class of eight kids, there are 6 boys and 2 girls. You have to give him credit for swooping down and claiming one for his own. They are going to be together for the next 12 years.

I can't help but think, "Noah and Kylie sitting in a tree..."

Sorry. :)

Abby and Hannah have both had 'boyfriends' but no kissing yet as far as I know. Hannah's current boyfriend is a boy named Josh in her class and Abby still insists that she's going to marry Ben someday.

Sigh...

What a cute conversation. My son hugs a lot of kids, but he is younger and is just affectionate like that. None of this marriage talk for us yet!

what a darling story...the kissing begins.....my Sugar has a little boy she is pretty smitten with, but I dont' think it is in any sort of love sort of way. She just thinks he is great.

Thanks for coming by my blog.
have a great weekend.
