My weekly round-up scours the internet for the best stories relevant to the preschooler set. Or at least the parents of the preschooler set. This week’s news involves an affectionate little leaguer, a future UPS delivery guy and a little girl who learned a tough lesson in unrequited love.

Little Girl’s Dream of Marrying Adam Levine is Squashed

Adam’s been married for about a year but Mila’s mom just broke the devastating news to her this week, teaching little Mila a tough lesson in unrequited love.

Cassidy does NOT want to go down for a nap. But instead of crying about it, he makes his case perfectly clear using only body language. That is pretty solid negotiating technique!

You do you, dude.
