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.
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.
