Cinderella's first heartbreak

So today when I went to get Cinderella from Kindergarten, she was walking slowly, with her head down.  I knew something was wrong.  I then asked how she was.  She replied, "I'm not feeling very good."

"Why not?"  I asked.
"One of my friends sent me an elf note today,  (An elf note is a way that the teacher is having the kids practice writing, they take turns sending kind notes to other kids in the class.) and he also gave one to the girl who sits next to me.  Mine said, 'I like you.'  But hers said 'I love you', then he told everyone that she is his girlfriend.

I then asked her if she "loved" him.  She said "no"  So I asked her why it bothered her that someone else was his girlfriend.  Her reply was, "because it's not me.  There are 15 girls who have boyfriends, but I don't have one."

There you have it, from the mouth of a five year old.  I thought we had a few more years before this started.

That poor thing! I know exactly how she feels! She's young she'll bounce back quick. Maybe she'll realize that boys are just trouble.

That makes me want to cry! Poor thing. And to know it only gets worse from here on out.

Remember when I asked you what Cinderella wants that would concern you? This is what I was talking about. You are so amazing, reasoning with her like you did. I would totally overreact if my CD came home from kindergarten and told me she wanted a boyfriend! I'm sure Cinderella will get her wish one day. But I hope she holds out for her Prince Charming instead of getting jealous over her friends the mice.
