Yesterday my seven-year-old told me he is "in love." He wants to kiss her. NO !!!! I practically shout, envisioning the zero-tolerance rule coming crashing down upon him...I can see it now -- expelled from school in second grade for aggressive romantic actions! Think it, honey, just don't do it, I counsel. Yesterday, I volunteered at my 12-year-old son's school and got to see, but not be seen, while his class worked on a project in a large multi-purpose area. And, if at age 46 I still remember correctly way back to what it looks like when a 12-year-old girl thinks a 12-year-old boy is pretty special, well, there it was....Wasn't it just yesterday when they were babes?
