My number two is in love. He has found his future bride. Nevermind that they are only in preschool. #2 and sweet L have been in class together since they toured in the bye-bye buggy. There has always been a friendship there, but lately things have turned more serious.
Since about birth I have been singing my son a special song, just for him. One of the lines goes "One day I bet my life, he'll find a real fine wife....." Now when I sing that line he interrupts me and spells out his true love's name.
This past week we were eating dinner outside, enjoying the wonderful weather. I asked #2, what is it exactly about L that makes her such a good friend? Without so much as a pause, he replied "I like the way she smells."
Seriously. That is what my 4 year old said.
I tried again. What about her makes her such a good friend? "I like the way she looks." he said with a shy grin.
Could I make this stuff up?
I love L's family and would be overjoyed if indeed we were one day in laws. However, 15 years is an awfully long time to court.
