Birthday Boss Collects Classmates' Kisses

It’s my birthday this week, so little Shafa, the adorable girl shown in this video receiving tributes and trembling cheek kisses from her male classmates, is obviously my personal hero and spirit animal. Although Shafa has only reached the tender age of four, the way she is working this line like a boss (with either her mom or teacher beside her doing yeoman wing-service) should be an inspiration to any of us who’ve felt under appreciated or overextended when it comes to the boys and/or men in our lives.

Jump through all the flaming hoops you want, but there are times when you just need to sit there and let the (often hilariously awkward) love come to you. So do yourself a solid: the next time you feel intimidated by someone you like, watch this video and remember that inside they all feel like these little dudes. As for that sad-sack armpit-length half-hugger at the end? Girl, we’ve all met and dated guys like that. At least he made eye contact when he shook your hand, and don’t forget, that’s usually how shy guys spell R-E-S-P-E-C-T. And that’s one gift you should always return.

    I love that schools make kids do birthday rituals like this! When my niece turned 3, she stood in the middle of a circle of about 20+ classmates, and they all had to take turns saying what they like about her. Every one of them looked miserable the entire time, but it was SO ADORABLE! They all just copied what the first one said (“because she’s nice and pretty”), and I just sat there watching, soooo jealous. Everyone, at every age, deserves to have a a circle of compliments and a line of hugs and kisses on their birthday!

    And, on that note, happy almost-birthday hez! I think you’re nice, and pretty. hug!

      Awwww, thanks Kate!! You’re nice and pretty, too! And obviously super smart and fun to be around because you’re reading Hello Giggles!

      I’m wondering if I could get the dudes at my birthday to do this, but their idea of a present is probably a coupon for a “FREE CHEST MASSAGE.” Bless.

    Cuteness overload! Totally going to recreate this whole shindig for my own birthday! With grown men, obviously.

    • Heather Watson

      Katherine, I bet that would make for a rad video, too!

    This is how every one of our birthdays needs to be celebrated.
