As we usually do on Saturdays, we took Parker to his swimming lesson this morning. As usual, I met Parker in the locker room to get him dried off, dressed, etc. And, as usual, I asked him how his swimming lesson went,if he had fun, etc. And, usually, he enthusiastically tells me it went well. But this time, his enthusiasm had to do with something entirely different, and thus our post-swimming lesson chat went rather differently.
“Daddy, I saw the girl that likes me!”
I didn’t have time to get the details from Parker, as I still had to get him dressed and stuff, but the hubby later confirmed for me during the ride home that there was indeed some mutual four-year-old flirtation going on between Parker and a girl in his class, and both were equally smitten. (Can’t say I blame her. I mean the kid is pretty darn cute, even if I am a little biased. The hubby says the little girl was quite adorable herself.)
Oh well. It was a rather cute moment in the locker room, and the first time I’ve heard anything like that from Parker.
At least we’ve got a while before he starts dating or anything. Right? Don’t we?
