I was volunteering at an elementary school this morning and this kindergartner comes up to me and says, “I like you!” At first, I didn’t hear it so I leaned over to her and asked, “Excuse me? What was that?” She repeated it again, “I like you!” And then she puts her arm around me for a half-hug. I was speechless. I thought it was the sweetest and most adorable thing ever.
As I was preparing to leave, I waved goodbye to the kids while they were outside playing. The same girl (Mara) approaches me again and says, “I love you!” and embraced me with hug. She goes from “I like you!” to “I love you!” within 2 and a half hours, haha. And I’ve only been volunteering here for a week and a half.
Kids these days are so cute, and that’s weird coming from me because I’m not the greatest when it comes to interacting with them. However, I’m definitely looking forward to spending more time with these little buggers.
My entire day is made.
