It seems Lulu has a boyfriend.
It's a good thing. You know, she is four. She had better snag herself a man before she gets too old. (OH MY GOODNESS - if you don't know that I could not be kidding MORE with that comment, then stop reading this blog IMMEDIATELY. Girl Power!)
I was spying through the windows of her classroom after drop-off yesterday. I saw her with her hands on L's waist, gazing adoringly up into his face while she told him something. I kept walking (I didn't want to be seen through the window - not that she would care that I was leaving... who am I kidding?). But, as I walked out of view I thought, "Was she just going in for the Good Morning hug/kiss?!"
I let it slip from my mind until I got a phone call from my friend - V's mom. It seems it was her day to read to our kids' class in the library and she wondered if I knew that Elizabeth was involved in an intense love affair. I laughed and told her what I had seen that morning. She said when they got to the library, Lulu and L tried to sit so close to each other that they were pretty much sharing the same carpet square. Before she even began reading, L had put his arm around Lulu. And she was distracted from her reading multiple times when L leaned over and kissed Lulu on the cheek.
So, come to find out after close note comparison with the other moms in our class: Lulu & L love each other. J loves V so much he wants her to come over and spend the night! B wants a girlfriend, too, but he can't be E's boyfriend because K wants E to be her BFF and no one else's.
Do you think we can sell the rights to this soap opera?
When I picked up Elizabeth from school yesterday I said, "Hey, Lulu. Do you have a new friend?"
She said, "Yeah. L's my friend. We play together. He's the knight-prince and I'm the princess. I have a pet named Rosie and he has a pet named Handsome."
Atta girl. You make those boys play prince to your princess for the rest of your life, sweet thing!
