He was in year 2 and I was in year 1. I was put in a class with a mix of year 1s and year 2s, but mainly year 2s. Everyone in the class knew except me, and it wasn't until his 7th birthday when his mum made a big fuss that I sit next to him that a friend told me. I steered clear of him after that. I mustn't have been interested. I just remember being embarrassed, and that it was somehow scandalous that one of the 'big(ger) kids' had a crush on me. The teacher even told my parents at parent-teacher night that many of the boys in the class seemed to like me a lot, probably because I could draw well and do bubble writing. Not much has changed, I still seem to have a blind spot for people who 'like' me.
