When my daughter was in first grade she had this cute little boyfriend named Chip. Chip was a sweet boy with blond curly hair. He was very quiet and shy, and I was surprised that he would even admit he had a girlfriend at such a young age. I think that when you are in the first grade, you just say you have a boyfriend or girlfriend and then that is it. Nothing else happens. You don’t date, or call each other on the phone, or even talk much at all. You mostly just chase each other on the playground at school. I don’t think my daughter’s romance with Chip went passed the first grade. I think they were not in class together anymore until they got to high school. By then, they both had different relationships going on and were mostly just friends in passing. My daughter is married now with two beautiful children. I had heard that Chip had gotten married as well and had two or three kids too. I was watching HGTV on Expert Satellite and starting watching a program about a crew that goes into a neighborhood and fixes up a house for someone. It is one of those programs that shows you how they did all the work. Well to my surprise, the carpenter on the show turned out to be Chip, my daughter’s first grade boyfriend. He had a shaved head and huge muscles. He had certainly changed since first grade. What a small world!
