Tyler's First Heartbreak...Love in 5th Grade...

Tyler had his first 'girlfriend' named Britney. Life was bliss for three whole days. Then at lunch, while Britney went to the restroom, her friend turned to Tyler and said loudly, "Britney is dumping you!." This is the account that I got in the car through watery eyes from my precious boy. He went on to say that she and her friends "shun" him. I told him to shun her right back. And he said, "I can't Mom, she's just too hot!"
Who does that Britney think she is anyway???

Shame on Britney!!

What a sweetie you have. It is always tough to go through this, but next week he will have moved on to the next and all will be right with the world again. :)

Teenage love = a revolving door. I think it is funny how they jump from one boyfriend/girlfriend to the next. I often can't keep up. :)

Hugs to Tyler!

Janet said...

Oh, Momma-Bear, that sucks! Your poor little man! Girls at that age are so fickle- and sometimes downright mean. Sorry Tyler has to deal with it!

Fifth grade heartbreak - I see it all the time. Our fifth graders are crazy in love, and out of love, this time of year.

Your boy sounds like a sweetheart. ;-)

She better not mess with your baby boy! girls!

Mr.Brian said...

Oh how that brings back the memories of being dumped myself. And I do think it was the 5th grade as well.
Welll it is theat little gals loss. She will be begging for him to take her back when he has some other "hot chick" on his arm. Then he can break her heart.

That's so sad. My daughter (almost 16) broke up with her boyfriend about a month ago (they dated for 14 months and he found someone else) and she said with tears in her eyes, "I don't care that I lost him as my boyfriend, I care that I lost my best friend." It's so hard when you want to make things right and sometimes you can't.

Aw, young love!
The first of many heartbreaks, unfortunately.
But, I'm sure he'll find himself another "hottie" real soon.

So sweet. So heart breaking. I feel for your boy. I love that he is hopeless at shunning her. He's a lover and a lover's face has many scars. Hope he never changes.

Andrew & Stephanie said...

Poor kido. Too bad it won't be the last! That Britney girl doesn't know a good thing when she sees it! :)

Mardi said...

Emmie said...

Well, I'll tel lyou what, it definitly doesn't get better in middle school. But it has turned to the guys being the mean ones now! :P

shelley said...

I have a fifth grader that has tasted her first crush this yr. She has chased a boy all yr and he couldn't be less interested. 2 days before school is out he begins to show interest. They will go to different schools next yr. so this was a fleeting fancy. My girl was really kind of hurt that this won't last.

Sorry Tyler, sometimes love stinks.

Thanks for sharing.
