Kindergarten {where I experienced my first kiss}

Yes, you read that right. I received my fist kiss from a boy in Kindergarten. Did I want to be kissed? No way! But, he was a persistent little bugger. Here's the story...

I loved Kindergarten. I loved my teacher. I loved playing with my friends. I just loved the feeling of being "grown-up". What I didn't love was a little boy named Gary.

You see, Gary, at the young age of 5, was a romancer. He loved playing with us girls and did not for one second think we had cooties!

I remember him being shorter than most of us girls, but that did not stop Gary. He was our own "rico suave", to say the least.

One particular day, I remember it so clearly, we were having our play time in the back of the room. The boys were on one side playing with whatever boys play with, and us girls were on the other side by the bookshelves looking at the books and playing with our dolls and what not. And, you will never guess where Gary was? With us girls. Wanting to play with us and trying to...*gasps*... kiss us!

Of course, being little girls and thinking all little boys had cooties...we would scream and yell for him to get away. The teacher, of course, always reprimanded Gary and gave him plenty of warnings to stop. But, Gary was persistent.

It wasn't before long that Gary won. He kissed a very unsuspecting, very oblivious to what was going on around her, little girl, right on her cheek. {that little girl was me!} And on that day, he must have known he was going to win, because I remember him being in a little suit with a brown tie. {maybe it was picture day. I honestly do not know why he was so dressed up! :) }

How did I react? I cried! I was so embarrassed and so upset.

Gary of course got into trouble. {I am not sure how much trouble. I was too upset to care!} And that was the last day he ever kissed any girl in our class!

When I share this story, as a joke now, of course, I laugh and often wonder where Gary is now. He didn't attend any other grade with me after Kindergarten, since his family moved, so I have no other memories of Gary.

But, the one I do have will always stay fresh in my mind.

  1. Haha! You'll have to check out my post. I also wrote a bit about my fist kiss in kindergarten. When I checked the class picture last night to scan it, I had to laugh out loud at the sweater the little kisser was wearing. It said "Score."

  8. Ah, I got my first kiss in Kindergarten as well, but mine was on the teeter-totters. I liked George, so I didn't mind much. It wasn't until I was in my 4th year of college that I got another. I was kinda slow and boys were pretty yucky until then. What a funny memory!

  9. LOVE it!

    I'm amazed at all the details you remember but, then again, that WAS a big moment. :)

    Thanks for sharing this with us!

  10. "He was our own "rico suave", to say the least." I smiled the whole way through this post.

    How adorable that he wore his suit and tie for you! Probably one of those clip on ties.

    Great Job Amy!

  11. How cute! This was the age I had my first kiss as well (which was my toddler years post)!
    I guess there are just always going to be those few boys who have that sense right away that cooties aren't real and they are going to get a head start on the rest of the guys!! Funny enough, my daughter (4) had her first kiss at church no less, within the last year. We told her to say goodbye to one of her friends as the adults all talked and before we could stop them they had KISSED on the lips and hugged goodbye! It was like slow motion as we realized what they were doing and we were like "Nooooo!" Thats one she will be hearing about when she is older for sure though maybe she will remember it herself! (And now we keep a CLOSE eye on her when she bids her friends- the boy ones- farewell!
