Yesterday my (biological) mom, my sister and I took Tino to the Y for a swim and he encountered his first crush... o.k., not really 'cause his only (almost) 2 but it was sooo cute. This is how it went down, picture me holding Tino in the pool and this little girl (LG) approaches us:
LG: He is cute, what's his name?
LG: Can his name be Eric for today?
me: o.k. What's your name?
LG: It changes. Sometimes is Tori, some other days is Ellie but today is Four
me: oh, hi Four!
LG: Can I hold him?
me: sure, if he'll let you
[Tino: all smiles while being held by LG in the water]
LG: Can I carry him on my back?
me: sure, if he'll hold on to your shoulders
[Tino: holding on to LG's shoulders]
LG: please get him off me he is sinking me!
[me: going back to hold Tino]
LG: How old is he?
me: almost two
LG: how many is that?
me: [showed her two fingers] how old are you?
LG: [shows me four fingers] how much longer until he is [she shows me the four fingers again]?
me: [showed her two fingers, again]
LG: can I give him a kiss?
LG: [gives Tino a kiss]
Tino: [a little bit weirded out] bye baby, bye baby, bye baby
LG: but I'm not going anywhere
me: I know but I think he is ready to leave
LG: can I teach him how to swim underwater next time?
me: sure, next time
LG: bye Eric
Tino: bye baby
