the kind of conversation nightmares are made of

Kortland riding in the van with his cousin:

COUSIN: I have two girlfriends now: Alivia and Lacey.
(me: what?! He's in 1st grade for cryin out flavin! Is this really starting already?)

KORTLAND: That's cool. My first girlfriend says she's in love with someone else now.
(me: what!? what girlfriend!? I'm sorry...come again?!)

COUSIN: Oh. My girlfriends are still in love with me.

KORTLAND: Oh.

LOLA: Who was your girlfriend bud?

KORTLAND: I'm not telling. It's a secret.

LOLA: If I guess who it is, will you tell me?

KORTLAND: (almost positive that I could never guess it in a million years) Yep.

LOLA: Is it _______?

KORTLAND: he he....yes. (mild shock and amused defeat)

Being "mom-helper" twice a week is so money baby! Ain't nothin' gettin' past me!

LOLA: Well who is she in love with now?
(My money is on Zach Efron, that girl is an H.S.M. - N.U.T. Besides, I broke up with my boyfriend in first grade because I was in love with Macgyver...stranger things have happened.)

KORTLAND: I don't know, she won't tell me. (so nonchalant, it's hilarious)

LOLA: Does it make you sad that she's in love with someone else now?

KORTLAND: No. (and it's clear that he really isn't broken up about it...like, at all.)

Isn't this supposed to happen in like, High School or something?! Sure, I got around in kindergarten and first grade. I was a fairly promiscuous 5 year old (never met a game of kissy tag that I didn't like) but I thought I was the exception, not the rule!

I don't like it.
Not one little bit.

He's adorable!

And it was so nice to meet you and Jen today. I'm so sorry I wasn't able to chat more, but you two ran early! You could have taken a picture in my Snuggie!

I am going to try to come down on Friday morning. We will see if I can make it.

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!! Funny little Kortland! Love that he's not even heartbroken over it at all... he's gonna be such a little player ;)

My 1st grader has had a crush on the same boy for over a year and it just makes me laugh. She even made him a special Valentine this year--and there may have been a kiss behind the trailer on the playground--but I'm still getting conflicting stories about that one. And YES, it freaks me out!

And just so you know who I am, I sat across from you at lunch today and really enjoyed your company!

Fun to meet you on Saturday. I'm hoping I can get to the swap---but I have this pesky thing called a job so it could be hard...

Your son sounds awesome---but I can't blame the girl. Have you seen Zach Efron? He's so dreamy:)

You better keep that cousin away. He sounds like a bad influence.
