I am a sucker

Ryan told me on Thursday night that he might have a new girlfriend. I think they were at the point where they were establishing (through friends of course) that they liked each other.
Today he told me they are now boyfriend/girlfriend, and that today is her birthday. He asked if I'd get her a gift. What????? Seriously???
But, hey, I'm a sucker for a) a nice Ryan and b) anything sweet. So I said....fine.
I went to Target, looked around forever, and realized that I have no clue what to buy a fifth grade girl. So I texted Ryan's friend to talk to Ryan since Ryan was at his friend's house, and he has no cell phone. I said, "What should I get her?" He texted back, "A necklace." Huh?
Well I was not willing to pay a lot for a necklace, and I was most certainly not going to buy a heart necklace. Feeling defeated, I finally said a cute little necklace that had no hearts. Get this...it was $2! Ha!
He was happy, my pocket book was happy, and when they are broken up in a week, I won't even care.
I probably shouldn't even have done it, but I remember getting a gift from my boyfriend in the 5th grade. They were a used pair of his sister's earrings. Tacky!

I think it's great that he asked his mom to help him out with his "girlfriend's" b-day gift. And this girl will always remember Ryan as the sweet boy in 5th grade who gave her a necklace!
