Children Talk About Love

Love Is Elementary

Little Ones' Takes on the Mushy Stuff

Love: Ain’t it grand? Except when it’s not — and you have to stay in bed, because small things (minivan commercials, the store being out of Cool Ranch Doritos, happy couples) make you sob.

To help us remember when it was all cupids and hearts, we enlisted the help of some children, all 5 to 8 years old. We asked them about everything from whom they love (and if they have boyfriends/girlfriends) to how to mend a broken heart.

One little girl, who was initially shy, boldly proclaimed she’d recently seen her parents kissing — on the lips. Another said she doesn’t want to get married unless it’s to her little brother.

Which should be enough to get us through Valentine’s Day, with or without chips.
