Yaman and Jastin (Justine B) Part 2

i just can't let this pass. as early as 4, yaman already has a crush, and what could more to attest to this but the one below. sent by sis just last week. mom reports that in her bedtime prayers, she never misses dedicating a prayer to justine b --- for them to meet someday, for him to be ok wherever he is.  two nights ago, she looked at me squarely, asking what 'slacks' and 'polo' is. after i explained, she blurted, well tomorrow we should buy justine slacks and polo shirt! huh?! if not for her being 5, i would've taken her seriously by how her face looked. it's just a crush anyway. just a crush.

Note that according to her, it's her heart on the left, the larger one, while the smaller one is Justine's. Good. In psychoanalysis (char!), it helps to know (for a freaky mom like me) that her love for herself is still way greater than for any other boy.
