      They could be calling each other boyfriend and girlfriend I suppose. Sometimes even small kids do that

        Which is still very much learned behavior, often the result of an uncle pestering “So little Jimmy, got a girlfriend yet?”

          My daughter has had crushes since kindergarten and absolutely no one has asked her if she “has a boyfriend yet”

          Kids develop crushes. You don’t need to make it weird.

            I had a little girlfriend when we were in first grade. lol I don’t recall anyone ever asking me if I had a girlfriend or anything, and I had plenty of friends that were girls and no one ever teased me about it that I remember. I knew it was okay to be friends with girls, I just had a crush on this one. We played Zelda together and talked on the phone for hours about whatever dumb things first graders talk about, then her family moved to another state. It was my most successful relationship to date. 😂

            Yes, your daughter has had the quintessential American child experience which is most likely going to underscored by taking place in a western-flavored cis heterosexual context. What I’m saying is that it’s all relative. Your daughter’s relationship experience will be different than an ancient Egyptian, or a Native American, or a Viking. There is nothing “natural” about the way we currently partake in relationships as Americans. And my point is that it is weird to assert “My child is so in love!” Let them express things on their own. Give them that freedom.

              Man if you knew me IRL you’d find this fucking hilarious.

          Almost everything we do is learned behaviour. Could be as simple as hearing adults talk about it to each other or calling people someone’s girlfriend or boyfriend.

      Calm down, I don’t think they’ll be needing “the talk” any time soon, it’s just an internet post for fun.

          During the pandemic, I decided I needed to be better about supporting local businesses. One of the things I did was switch from Domino’s to a local pizzeria. It seemed about equivalent at the time. After 3 years of this, at a kids birthday party, I had Domino’s. It is absolute trash by comparison.

          However, my kids detect no difference. They also enjoy cardboard like Little Caesars and Cicis. What I’m trying to say is… Kids don’t care, pizza is pizza.

    They will, if you have pepperoni when all they got was plain cheese.

    2 entire pizzas? No wonder homie got the water.

    I’m sad that’s it’s economically infeasible to be in a relationship.

      I’m not entirely sure that I would even be able to eat an entire pizza. Kids are truly built different

    This makes me anxious, my kids would absolutely flip both of those pizza boxes and/or stomp on the pizzas with their random limb flailing carelessness

      Maybe OP “diana” meant the way the kid on the left is looking at the pizza…

    Plenty of people would loom at you that way, you just push them away because you’re scared of intamacy/ are full of yourself/ aren’t ready for that. (Delete as appropriate)
