“If you press me to say why I loved him, I can say no more than because he was he, and I was I.” ~Michel de Montaigne
I heard from a very reliable source (Jacob’s shadow) that there is a little girl in Jacob’s class at school who is crushing on him. Jacob is completely unaware of the crush. But, seriously. I mean, who wouldn’t be crushing on my boy?? Just look at that face!
The other weekend, we were visiting with my family and friends at a conference in Kitty Hawk, NC. Jacob, and a very gregarious friend of my dad’s, who I’ve known since I was probably 6 or something, were overheard having a conversation. It went something like this:
Friend: Whoa, Jacob! You’re 12 already! You must have lots of girlfriends now!
Jacob: Pssshhh! (waves the friend off and makes a scrunchy raised eyebrow face) That’s for next year!
Here’s hoping she’s willing to wait.
