‘Tis the season for husbands to struggle with trying to find the perfect signs of affection for their wives. No need gentlemen — just stare at your love, dance and put your noses together, and then go to the pool with her.
At least, those are three of the steps to falling in love according to a pair of Boston second graders.
Skip the flowers, the chocolates, and the overpriced dinners. Just get close together and then suck and lick when you kiss. Ahem — sounds like someone’s daughters have been catching a few episodes of The Bachelor.
Seriously though, if you want to know what love really means, ask your kids. Ask them what it means to be in love. They’ll likely break it down into the simple basic things that attracted you to your spouse in the first place. This is what should be celebrated this season. Quiet time, happiness, longevity, commitment. Then ask your kids what the steps are for falling in love, and you might be pleasantly surprised (or totally shocked).
An elementary school teacher in Boston recently asked her students to list the steps for falling in love. Two girls took to a napkin, starting out with 24 steps to falling in love, but realized we only need 11, after all.
The best thing you will read all day: two of my sister’s 2nd graders on “how to fall in love.” My favorite: step #8. pic.twitter.com/AfmjcNcNpm

Their list is very cute. Or not. Still, if you want the perfect marriage to be celebrated during this Valentine’s Day season, it’s best you go back over the list and make sure you’re following them all perfectly. Or not.
1. First you stare at the person.
2. You get close to each other.
3. You ask for a date.
4. You go in bed and do sex.
5. When you kiss, you suck and lick.
6. Get naked in bed, and do more sex.
7. Go dance, and put your noses together.
8. You go in bed forever, then kiss forever.
9. Take a shower together and kiss.
10. Give each other rings.
11. Go to the pool together.
Remember, these girls are 8 years old. Got second graders? Maybe it’s time to spend Valentine’s Day talking about the birds and the bees. You know, after you “go to the pool” with your Valentine 😉
