Throwback Thursday: Elementary school crush

It's time for The Life of Bon's Throwback Thursday Link-up. This week it is Elementary school crush.



I, of course, had several elementary school crushes. The main one for several years was Rich* (name changed). He was soooooo cute, quiet, and clean. Even at that age we look for clean, haha. I remember inviting him to my birthday party in kindergarten and he didn't come. I was so sad. I asked him why he didn't come and he said he didn't go to girls birthday parties. Later I found out that he really didn't go to girls parties. I think it was a shy thing because he was super shy. I think his shyness was part of the appeal, he had a majority of the elementary girls crushing on him but he never had a girlfriend. He ended up dating some girl in junior high and are STILL TOGETHER. I guess he only wanted 1 girlfriend. 

This crush lasted until junior high, when our 4 elementary schools combined into 1 junior high. With the addition of 3 more elementary schools brought the addition of several more boys for me to crush on. I moved on and never looked back.

The funniest part of my whole story is that his son is in the same grade as my daughter and he is JUST LIKE HIS DAD, cute, quiet, and clean.  My daughter thought he was the cutest thing in kindergarten (funny how history sometime repeats itself). We went to their house one day when she was 5 and asked me where we are going. I knew if I said the parent's names she would still ask so I said "we are going to Billy's* house." She answered in a fascinated voice with "Billy, really?" like we were going to Brad Pitt's house. She talked about that trip for days. Since she is now 10, I think she has moved on as well. She did mention one day last year that she didn't think he was cute anymore because he talks too much. I guess he isn't like daddy after all. 

Hope you have enjoyed my 2 stories of 2 generations of crushes. I'm sure pics would have been great with this post but I couldn't find mine or Eve's yearbooks from kindergarten, they must be packed away somewhere.

    1. The multi-generational stuff is one of the things you get with small town life :)

  4. That's actually SUPER adorable. The whole thing. Also, I totally know what you mean about that small town thing - I'm 24. A friend from a bigger town in Florida came home with me for Easter and we were getting gelato at the local pizza place and the people in front of us in line were the couple that used to sit in front of me in church every week, her mind was blown. Stopping by from Life of Bon, thanks for sharing :)
