Could it be that my little Tyler has a little girlfriend? Or at the very least someone that wants to be his girlfriend? He has never once mentioned anything of the sort to us and it would completely shock me if he did. Tyler is a sweet little boy with many great qualities that any little girl would love, but he has always been into things like Star Wars and most recently Ninjago, not really things that appeal to the little girl set.
When he got home from school yesterday I went straight for his home work folder like I normally do. It was empty except for this little handwritten note. I didn't see what it said at first and when I asked him about it, he took it out of my hands and said it was some project they were working on in school and he proceeded to throw it in the garbage. Maybe I would believe him, but my kids never throw anything in the garbage, especially that quickly.
Did he actually think that I would leave it at that?
I was intrigued to say the least. My son comes home with a note and I can't read it? How do I know what this says? It could be from the teacher right? Sorry buddy, but if you didn't want me to see it, you should have burned it. After fishing it out of the garbage can I noticed that it did look like a school project but down at the bottom, there it was:
"I love you, your a little puppy dog! Aleah"
I won't lie to you, for a moment there I was quite proud of the little guy. Some girl at school named Aleah thought my son was cute enough to say that she loved him. Maybe it's a little too early to profess her love, but still THAT'S MY BOY! Maybe my son has all the charm that I lacked with the ladies? Could this kid really be the big man on campus, something his father never was? Finally a man in my family that didn't run and hide at the first sight of a girl! My son, the stud!
Or, maybe not.
Or, maybe not.
It seems as though he is a little too much like me after all. What do they say about the apple falling from the tree? With a response like that, we might just have to hope Carter can carry on the family name instead.
