~First Heart Break~
May 18, 2017 5:52pm CST
Hey everyone. My oldest daughter had her first "heart break" yesterday. I know she's too young for boys. It was just a girl crush. She really liked a boy at church. They would smile at each other, they talk all the time, sit next to each other at church, etc... Well yesterday my baby girl found out he has a girlfriend at his school. =( She was crushed. She cried when we got home and talked to me about her feelings. I felt so bad for her. She told me today she's done with boys for a long time! (I know she's hurt but I was secretly very glad she said that part). At almost 12 she has a lot more heart breaks in her future. =(

It never gets easier. I remember going through it with my daughter. I think I always ended up crying about it to because I felt so bad and there wasn't anything I could say or do to help her. There will be lots more of those times. It is hard as a parent to see our child hurting.
It is so hard to see your daughter heartbroken ( been there got the T-shirt ) but so good that she is open about her feelings and wants to talk to you about them, she is a beautiful young girl and in a few years time she will have a line at your door

It can be hard to be rejected like that. I'm sorry that she was crushed and it's not always easy to see your kids cry. Although I am sure that you were pretty happy. I know I'm not ready for my kids to have crushes or boyfriends/girlfriends.

@LovingMyBabies I was heartbroken when Maryanne rejected by eraser in 5th grade and chose Chris's over mine. He was such a dork. My eraser even had one side for pencil and one for pen. And angled edges. It's still hard to talk about it.

@LovingMyBabies Poor girl! I hope she gets over it soon. Nothing is fun about a heartbreak. I still remember my first heartbreak. It seemed like it took forever for me to get over it (although I'm sure it was only a week or two at most).
I wonder if she could actually pick up a lesson about relationship where she is still too young and that friendship at this point of time is much more important than anything else. Like my eldest, when she said that she was done with boys - the next moment she was the center of attention. Fortunately we had a good talk where I told her that she's had to get her grades before anything can happen.

She's very cute! I assume she will break a few heats as well. I've had 11-year-olds tell me how they know when they have a boyfriend or girlfriend. The most common response is: "She texts me back when I text her." That's some powerful love right there.

@Thehorse Thank you I tell her beautiful she is all the time. My daughter says he's my crush but I want him to be my boyfriend, maybe one day. Lol. She also tells me she wants to find love like her dad and I have, that makes me happy. =)
