It was a rare afternoon where both parents were around for daycare pick up.
Walking into the jungle of noisy kids and strewn toys, I spotted one of my boys .
K-Bear was in his usual spot at the train track table.
Scanning the room, Mr Surfer pointed to Nunu who appeared to be in mid-embrace with…a girl.
“Naw, cute!” I thought.
Trying to round them up (yes, very much like sheep), I noticed the little girl in question was not quite done with the affection. She wanted more.
Before I could fully comprehend what was going on, there was a little chase with her arms wide open…reaching for my son.
In a split second, I witness the pair leaning in, puckering their lips and ….
Mortified, I froze in time.
Right next to the mini trampoline, behind the red and yellow Little Tikes car.
Funnily, we had always joked that out of the twinions, Nunu would grow up to be the Casanova. But you know, in another ten years! At least!
Let’s just get to kindergarten first!
The drive home was not short of proclamations of adoration.
“I love her, Mama. I LOVE her! She is my girlfriend”
Whoa there, Romeo!
Just last week I was his one and only Princess Arthur.
Luckily, a son’s love for his mother is far more endearing. (Or am I just in denial?)
What definitely rings true is that a burning infatuation ends as quickly as it begins.
In three short days, I asked Nunu how his lady love was.
“Oh, I didn’t play with her today, Mama.”
He’s switched girls. This new girlfriend plays cars with him.
K-Bear in the meantime has no interest whatsoever. For him, it’s still all about trains.
Do you have a kissy kissy preschooler in your midst? Do you remember your very first? Can I ever reclaim my noble title as Princess Arthur?
