Last night while Chris was out battling our outdoor lighting for Christmas, Ivy and I were laying in bed watching a Spiderman cartoon.
She says in this little voice, "mama, I want a boyfriend." I say, "You do?" (knowing full well that she has a crush on a boy at preschool) She says slowly, "Yeah, but he has to be nice. And not take things away from me and he has to listen." All the while my heart is just melting at the sweetness of it all. I then say, "Oh Ives, I hope that your boyfriend is all of those things. Those are great things to have on your list for a boyfriend." Let's all hope that her list continues to keep all of those qualities through her life.
