Who wouldn’t want to receive a love letter like this?
Four-year-old Bennet has definitely won over the hearts of the internet this week after a love letter he wrote to his pre-school crush, Bailey, went viral when it was posted to Reddit.
In the letter he tells Bailey, “you should come over to my house and eat cheeses with me.” This sentiment follows a display of romantic compliments from Bennet telling his crush that she is pretty; like a horse or a ladybug. He even goes on to use the L-word and confesses that he lost a tooth last night.
It’s a sweet reminder that we all need to be putting pen to paper and sending some old school love every now and then.
Here’s the letter in all its innocent glory…
Bennet’s mother, Jennifer, has spoken to Buzzfeed telling them that the global response from the letter has been a welcome distraction as she waits on one of her son’s last cancer check appointments.
She told Buzzfeed, “I have to say that the attention the letter has received has put a smile on my face, as Bennet was a very sick kid. He was diagnosed with cancer at 6 months old and actually goes up for one of his last cancer checks in Portland, Oregon very soon. I’m always nervous about these checks and this has been a nice distraction.”
