My Awesomely Random Life (and Everything in Between)

young-love

As I was running checking my phone on the treadmill this morning, I caught a segment on Good Morning America that definitely made me chuckle a bit–which almost caused me to fall off said treadmill. I don’t multitask very well. Or at all, really. The struggle is real.

Anywhoo, back to my story. A correspondent went to an elementary school in upstate Pennsylvania and interviewed a bunch of the students there, asking them what they thought love was. I have to say, I had a hard time disagreeing with any of them. In fact, the next time I have dating/relationship/bae issues, I’m seeking out advice from kiddos like these.

Incredibly honest, innocent, wise and HIL-arious beyond their years, yo!

Below are just some of my fave responses:

“Love is when you kiss a girl for the first time and then you know that you’ll never be bored again because you can always just think about kissing her.” —Justin, 11

I know what love is. Love is when someone loves someone else…and then they whack each other.” —Owen, 5

“Ewwww! Love? Ew.” —Malik, 6

“Dad not farting.” —-Poppy, 8

“The warm feeling when someone hugs you.” —-Vince, 7

“When you wanna kiss a boy you’re friends with. But I’m not friends with any boys cuz they have cuties.” —-Keri, 6

“Well, I know I love my girlfriend because when I think about her making out with another guy, I want to punch a wall.”            —-Robbie, 13

“Kissies.” —-Uma, 5

“I don’t know! Maybe….no, never mind. I don’t know.” —-Jessie, 7

“Squishy cheeks.” —-Ivan, 6

“I’m not sure because everyone who says they love each other also acts like they hate each other.” —-Wyn, 8

“When you share your French fries even though you really love French fries.” —-Noah, 7

“When my brother goes to sleep over and I cry because I miss him.” —-Lola, 6

“Love is what grown-ups feel when they kiss each other and get married.” —-Kelly, 8

“Love is what happens when you really, really like someone and you want to spend all day with them and nobody else. Except for maybe your friends and family and dog because you love them too.” —-Matty, 9

“I love my family because they’re my family. And when I’m older I’ll probably love someone else because I love them.”             —-Jaqueline, 10

“I know my mom and dad love me because they give me food and let me play games and give me a hug when I’m sad. So I love them too.” —-Inigo, 5

“You tell me! You’re old.” —-Lee, 7

I think I have been overthinking this love thang. Maybe, just maybe, love is really just as simple as that.

  1. So wise!

    “When you share your French fries even though you really love French fries.” —-Noah, 7

    Yup, that’s always how I know I’m in love!

  2. If I can find someone who I want to share my fries with, then I’ll know it’s true love.

    “I’m not sure because everyone who says they love each other also acts like they hate each other.” Sadly that is more true than it should be for so many people.

  3. Seriously, the fries thing is the real thing. I will continue searching for the person I can share fries with and not share because I feel obligated to do so. Hahaha.

  4. Aw, this was adorable! That first kid is a little romantic. Kids do say the funniest things, but they’re so often true!

  5. Awww…
    “When my brother goes to sleep over and I cry because I miss him.” —-Lola, 6

    That one reminded me of me in kindergarten. https://sharingmemyselfandi.wordpress.com/2012/08/07/my-kindergarten-emmy/
