Whose Louise are you?

Yesterday, like everyday, Boy2 and I arrived at Boy1's school at 11:45 to pick him up for lunch. Which, I must say, is always, without exception, such a pleasure. We hug like we haven't seen each other in months and it's one of the sweetest moments in my day. Anyway, from his carseat in the back, Boy2 spotted a mother (and friend) carrying her 3rd and youngest girl (16 months). The mother stopped when she saw us and waited for us to catch up.

En route, Boy2 said, "Look, Mama, it's my Louise."

"She's your Louise?"

"Oh yes, she's my Louise."

We met up and exchanged greetings. I was carrying Boy2 (yes, he's very heavy) and Louise was also in her mother's arms.

Boy2 gazed at Louise and then said to me, "Oh Mama, my Louise is so cute."

Then he leaned forward and said,"Now I kiss my Louise." And gave her the sweetest kiss on the cheek.

Louise beamed at him. Despite the fact that she speaks no English, she knew exactly what was going down.

Got to love that story. Romance is in the air! I love when my baby girl "smooches" her friends - it's such a cute sight.

I just realized that I may have missed a few of your first Blog entries - so I went back and read the first 2. Last night I had a similiar situation to your weird conversations - when your child screams in the middle of the night it's amazing how alert you become and how fast you can run - at 8 1/2 mths pregnant, I'm pretty sure I set the new record for the 10 yard dash last night!
And, regarding your first entry - since I live in the Bay Area - protests and things of that sort are a way of life - even in the little wine town that I live in - luckily it does not interfear with traffic! I don't think I would handle traffic interruption very well.

Beth: I really have a hard time picturing you as 8+ months pregnant.

beth said...

Zeb - Even I have to admit that it's quite a sight - big, big ol' belly! Even though I'm lucky where as nothing else on me gets big during pregnancy - the big belly makes up for everything else!

Ahhhhh.....

Of course, in a few years you'll have to lock him up but for now...ahhhhhh....

Nicole/Lorraine - My friend has the cutest childrens store here in Sonoma and she sells boys tshirts that say "lock up your daughters" - too bad they aren't written in French-otherwise I would see if she had any left to fit the cute little lad!

It don't need words, do it!

Is Beth from the wedding?

Nicole said...

Lorraine - no, different Beth. This is Beth I've known since literally I was an itsy bitsy baby. I'm hoping I won't have to lock him up for a long time, thankfully, child sexual harassment suits are unheard of here.
