Luke and love

At football last night which as I mentioned yesterday is consuming my whole life, a little girl we will call her J came up to me with a bag full of goodies, little trinkets and toys for my son Luke.  J and Luke have been friends for about 4 years now and Luke thinks that J is just the prettiest little blond haired girl that walks the planet.  He has professed his love for this little girl for years claiming she will be his wife someday.  Well last week at football some of the 7 year old silly girl were all huddled in a gossipy circle giggling about which boy they were going to marry and J says very loudly that she will marry my son Luke, when the sweet girl realized I was sitting right next to her she turned every color of red under the sun.  I quickly comforted her by saying "oh honey it's ok Luke thinks you are very pretty too, he wants to marry you too"  ~Open mouth insert foot~ I said this without thinking maybe mom's of boys don't tell girls that their son is in LOVE with them.
For the rest of the week when ever J is finished with her cheer practice she hurries to sit up at the field where Luke is practicing.  I am very good friends with J mother she was one of my first friends when I moved here, she is a mother of 3 boys and one girl, she thinks it's very sweet how J and Luke feel about each other.
Luke wasn't mad at me for telling J instead he has asked me to tell her things like she is smart and pretty.  HD told Luke that's what you have a little brother for...
Last night J gave Luke some gifts like I said before and in the car ride home, Bo was so upset he wanted a goodies bag, I explained that he needed to be happy for his brother that he got a present and not think only of himself at which point Luke pipes in "yeah Bo when you are in TRUE LOVE like me and J you will get gifts too"....

Oh Lord I think I am in real trouble!

Aren't they sweet when they are young and innocent? We have a little girl "in like" with our 11 year old and I just adore her... I am all for arranged marriages! Dancer has a best boy friend, too. They have already begun practicing the dance they will dance to at the reception!
