Can 4 year olds have boyfriends?

Miss4 has been coming home gushing about a little boy from prep. Apparently little Casanova is trying to give her flowers (which he picks out of his mother's garden) and sit next to her in class and chase her and all sorts of shenanigans, which are told to us amidst giggles and coy smiles.

At school today, Romeo's mother approached Tracey to tell her how her son had announced he has a girlfriend. No prizes for second guesses - our little miss.

Tracey swapped a few stories and it was all fun and chuckles. It's all very cute when they're four, isn't it?

This same scenario with Miss8 might have played out differently. Well maybe for Tracey. For me, when news of Miss4's boyfriend came my way, naturally I went, as always, straight to the big question.

"What's his earning potential?"

"Bruce! He's a minor," Tracey admonished.

That sounded good to me. "That's okay then. Miners earn decent money."

One down, four girls to go.

My then 4 year old girl got a kiss on the hand by a boy at kindy, just a bit of cute harmless fun. Might not be the case in a few years so lap it up while it's harmless :)!!

Gosh my 5 year old son won't even go near girls....nevermind having a girl friend.

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
