My boys are speaking often about love (always spoken as luuuv) lately. I'm not quite sure what spurred this on, but it has come up a few times the last couple of weeks. Josiah has had a little girl in his PE class try to kiss him a couple of times (much to his chagrin). She's his friend, he told us, but she's too interested in...you guessed it...luuuv. Girl luuv, as he calls it, is loviness. Holding hands, kissing, acting gushy. Girl luuuv. He told Kit last night he would never like girl luuv (after Kit stole a kiss from me in the kitchen). Kit laughingly corrected him that he would like it in a few years' time. Josiah exclaimed-NEVER! and told us if any girls wanting girl luuv got near him he would run away. Haahaa! Yes, son...keep on running until after your mission.
Gavin asked me the other day when I fell in love (spoken as yuuuv) with him. I told him I never had to fall in love with him, I just always loved him. He told me he falls in yuuv with me when I give him hugs, but it isn't girl yuuv, just yuuv. Silly boys.
