Boobaby’s Boyfriend

by doodaddy on February 10, 2008

Boobaby has always liked older kids, especially boys like Buddy Boy. Turnabout is fair play: now she’s got an admirer, in the shape of a 15-month old boy in her music class.  S— is a cutie pie who follows Boo around constantly sporting a goofy, unwipeable smile.

I don’t think she knows what to do with him.

In the Nest
Already Nesting

At first, she ignored S—. Now she’s warmed up and barely tolerates his presence. He doesn’t play crash or roll around on the ground or carry bugs in his pocket. Pretty much all he does is follow Boo and smile a lot — what good is that?

Sadly, I think Boo could really use a surrogate for Buddy Boy, who’s in school all the time. She has fun with her other friends, but she’s never quite as excited as with BB, even now, when we rarely see him. There’s no way to make these connections happen, though — they either do or they don’t. I can make sure we hang with some 3- and 4-year olds, though.

God, if I’m this anguished about my daughter’s boyfriends at age 2, can you imagine what the teenage years are going to be like? Sheesh.

I hate to even think about what it will be like when Lil’ Bum is grown.

I’m applying for a shotgun license in preparation for when my 4 year old daughter hits pubity.

Oi! I thought she was destined for Declan?!? You can’t back out on our deal now!

You will watch her like a hawk when she is a teenager.

…and she’ll probably figure out ways to evade me, like taking off in her jet pack or something. I look forward to the future!

My husband says the same thing. Strangely enough, I’m not too concerned. For some reason, I know she’ll manage just fine without parental interference.

I’m not concerned, either — I really look forward to the teen years, actually. I know a helluva lot more about teenagers than any other age, to be honest!
