Driving her daughter Quinn home from preschool on Ash Wednesday, mom Sloane Heffernan recorded the adorable 5-year-old's deep thoughts about relationships.
"Serious boy troubles for Quinn," Heffernan captioned the Facebook video of the little girl's lament, which has since been viewed more than 16,000 times.
"I think I'm too young to have a boyfriend," Quinn starts out. Then she tells her mom about the boy in question, "He looks so happy, and I don't want to break his heart."
"How do you feel about him?" Heffernan asks, to which Quinn replies, "I feel different."
"I guess I just tell him it's time to break up," she adds.
Heffernan comforts her daughter, saying she thinks he will be alright.
"Quinn is 5 going on 25!" the amused mom told People.com, adding, "She is a precocious little girl who is wise beyond her years. She has this boyfriend who she claims she's already kissed on the playground. Then another little boy started pursuing her this week and suddenly things got complicated!"
Oh, boy! Sloane, you are in trouble. But you aren't alone. My 7-year-old struggles with boy problems, too. You see, there's this "guy" who likes her, but she isn't into him. And he won't give up! But unlike Quinn, my daughter doesn't seem to be very worried about the boy's feelings. She's more into playing hard to get.
If only the boy problems could stay this innocent forever, right moms? I'm scared for when my daughters are older and going on dates, and can really get their hearts broken. Phew. So. Not. Ready.
Do your kids already have relationship problems?
