The Boyfriend and Girlfriend.

My daughter is in love (she has a crush) with David Bromstad. Everytime she sees him on tv she screams, "Mami! Mi novio!" to my husband's consternation and my amusement. I tell her, there are no "novios" (boyfriends) at her age, only friends. She still screams the same thing every time she sees his show on HGTV Color Splash. Now, my son on the other hand, had a heart attack when he saw Marie Osmond on tv. He ran to the screen and placed a kiss on it. I was shocked. He does not speak yet, so, I can only imagine in his little world she is a very pleasant face.

I look at these people and laugh, thinking whom ,or what type, will my kids be attracted to when they grow up.

Hi Yoli,
Happy May Day! & Happy early Mother's Day too!
I bet whoever your children end up with will be great! Perhaps a challenge for both sides of parents. Since I have no children I will never know.
What I do know is that it is a true gift to find a partner to share one's life with. I met mine when I was 37 yrs!

I like that they are not into stereotypes.
Maëlle has a boyfriend at school and it was a shock for me because I don't remember I had a crush at 4 years old. I think we'll be up to some surprises with our kiddos and it's good: they might help us keep an open mind!

How sweet! She does have good taste--I love Color Splash! "I guess they call it Puppy Love" Isn't that how the song goes? Or was that Donnie who sang it?

Your son kissing Marie Osmond is the funniest thing I've heard all week :)

I think my very first onscreen crush (we didn't have TV) was someone playing a brave eskimo in Nanook of the North . Next came Jean Claude Killi when I was four and we were living in France, because his ski races were on TV all day every day.
Wonder who Flynn's will be?

We took the girls to see the Hannah Montana movie and when we left we were discussing how the Jonas Brothers weren't very talented at all and we were surprised they were singing with Miley. Claire piped up and said emphatically, "I like the Jonas Brothers! They're cute! I like their hair. They can dance and sing and play music, and I am going to kiss them!" We about wrecked the car! Laura is 8 is still thinks boys are gross. My friend bought Claire a Jonas brother CD a few days ago and she held it up to her heart and sighed. It felt like a moment from the Brady Bunch and Marsha had just gotten a new album from her latest heartthrob. We are both in so much trouble.
Sally has good taste!
Cael' apparently likes much, much older women.
