The Older Man

My girlies are pretty friendly, and they can find a playmate or two just about anywhere we go.

As a reward for good behavior during the first day of VBS, I took them to the pool after naptime yesterday. Michaela Byrd was a little wary when we strolled through the gates and she spotted "E" splashing around.

E is an adorable, round, little red head who's actually Natalie's age, but he apparently has a thing for younger women.

He fell in love with Michaela Byrd last summer on the steps of the big pool and had a hard time getting through his swimming lessons because he wanted to tickle her, hand her copious amounts of toys, and follow her around. Michaela Byrd found E's attention a bit overwhelming and spent a lot of her summer running away from E as the lifeguard blew his whistle at her to stop running. I think she plays hard to get.

It seems that the passing of three seasons didn't wane E's feelings for my younger daughter. He did his best to show his affection for his long-lost love by doing what any normal 4 year old boy would do...he followed us around the pool, took her Barbie and threw it in the water, asked her a million questions, and "helped" her jump to me off the side of the pool by giving her a little gentle shove.

I wanted to ask his mother if maybe she thought it was E's dinnertime yet.

Her older sister took the whole situation in stride, but she has her own string of little boyfriends.
I don't know what the summer holds for Michaela Byrd and E, but I imagine it will include a lot of splashing, some screeching, and maybe a few dirty looks from me to E's mother.

But can you blame him? Who can resist those ruffles?

What a cutie! No reason E won't leave her alone! Maybe he'll go on vacation soon and give both you and M.B. a break.

Tell T he better get his big bat ready. She's gonna have boys chasing her for the next 20 years or so!! I'm sure E just can't help himself. She's such a cutie pie!! Although, I'd be looking for his mom to intervene too, with the shoving especially!! BOYS!

Too cute! Luckily for me, my boys still think girls are gross! This past week I had to make them play with their cousin who was here for a visit. I guess that is what happens when you grow up in a house full of boys:)

No, you can't blame the boy

That's what you get for having such beautiful daughters.

Too cute. I know a lot of grown men that still act like this.

Southern Fried Gal said...

Too funny! As the mother of one VERY precocious boy I can empathize with E's momma. And your baby is so stinking cute - who can blame him for being totally smitten!
