Sydney was talking to Kim on the way home from school the other day. She told Kim that she picked out a new boyfriend at school. OK. Kim asked if the boy knew. Sydney explained that she hadn’t told him yet. Love is weird — when you are 6.
Fast forward to today when Sydney went to the store with Kim. She happened to glance at some posters and started screaming. What’s wrong? She had tears in her eyes! What? It’s Michael Jackson!!! Can I buy this? Please! Pretty please! OMG. Her first crush.
She came into the house and made me unroll it without telling me who was on it. I said…Oh, Michael! I looked up and Sydney had tears in her eyes. Can we hang it in my room? “Sure”, I said. “Now?”, she said. I think she meant “Right now, DAD!”
