… when Charlotte kisses me. And so it begins. Are we really here already? May I remind you that Lil G is 3 years old. Not 13, Not 23 … Just 3! Eek. The time has come for me to wrap my Lil G up in cotton wool and hide him away from the rest of the world. From the world of dating. Eek. Oh just the thought makes me cringe.
Just for a second, allow me to share with you how our little conversation went…
Me: Who’s Charlotte sweetie?
Lil G: *tuts* She’s a girl in Kindergarten silly
Me: Oh, she’s probably just trying to be your friend. Is she nice?
Lil G: No mummy, she keeps grabbing my arm, holding my head, and kissing me
Me: Eek (inside that is) Have you thought about giving her a cuddle and then maybe she’ll stop?
Lil G: She keeps doing it mummy. I don’t like it. She keeps kissing my cheek, pulling my arm, she makes me angry mummy *growls*
Me: Ok, well I promise you she is just trying to be nice, I think she likes you and wants to be your friend. Would you like Charlotte to be your friend?
Lil G: mmmmm *puts a finger to mouth* No mummy, Charlotte is bigger than me, I don’t want to be her friend. She keeps following me. I don’t like it. She sits next to me at dinner time as well. I want to sit next to Tommy. Tommy is my friend mummy. Not Charlotte *sighs*
Me: Ok sweetie, well don’t worry. Have you told Julie or Alice what is happening? (KG staff)
Lil G: Yes mummy I told Alice
Me: And what did she do?
Lil G: They moved her away from me so I could eat my dinner, but she came back *sighs*
Me: *scooped him up for a cuddle* I promise you sweetie, Charlotte is just trying to be friendly. When you are a big boy I am sure you will want to be friends (we all know this is true!)
Lil G: No mummy, I will hide
Me: Good idea kid (phew and wipes brow)
And there you have it. The dilemmas of a 3-year-old. Oh to be young and free of all stresses in life. Don’t you just love their innocence? Their complete disregard for something which is actually quite sweet but to them a huge annoyance. I’m quite excited that the girls are chasing him already. Who wouldn’t right? He’s bloody gorgeous.
