Don't Be Her Valentine

Amanda sat, filling out her sweet, little Mickey Mouse valentines for all her classmates. She earnestly called out to me, "Mom, which one of these sayings can I give to a boy without him thinking I like him?" The choices were:
"You're neat, you're sweet."
"You and I go hand-in-hand, Valentine."
"Let's hang out sometime!"
and the standard "Be My Valentine"

Ah, Sweet Girl... This child has a heart of gold, but is very dedicated to making sure she is never misunderstood. She is oh-so-nine-years-old, and truly would not want to be mistaken for one of those "silly girls" who is already "crushin' on" boys. It's one of the many reasons I love Amanda so. She can be my Valentine, any time.
