Petunia has a longtime admirer. He's a determined little guy and will be quite a catch in eight or ten years: he's handsome, bright, athletic and from a nice family. Unfortunately for him, he keeps announcing that he has a crush on her, and she has absolutely no idea how to handle this! He did it again at school today. She likes him well enough, but has no romantic interest...that appears to be reserved for a friend and classmate of Thing Two's (an older man!!), based on her frequent unprovoked comments about how much she doesn't like him. Ah, the drama of elementary school romance.
At least unrequited love is a little easier to deal with...her father was unamused two years ago when she came home from school one day and announced that she was engaged to a boy in her kindergarten class! This one's going to run us a merry dance.
