Best Little Girlfriend

Harrison and I went to a 9/11 Memorial Dedication on Saturday. During what was some of the most intense dialog retelling that day, Harrison was actually sitting behind the giant library return box playing with a little girl about half his age - literally!

He referred to her as his "little girlfriend".
"Mommy, this is my little girlfriend!"
When she moved away, he chased after her, and then she would take him by the hand and lead him to the curbside to "sit!". Then try to make him stand, only to tell him to "sit!" again.

At first she played hard to get, talking to her play-groupies on her daddy's blackberry. Boy they start young, eh?


Soon she warmed up to him though, and then it was all good from there on out. She hung on his every word. They held hands. He whispered sweet Toddler nothings in her ear at her.

Here is my best shot.

Then her daddy came and swept her up to rush her back to the castle tower. It happened so fast that Harrison even didn't get to goodbye. He doesn't do well without proper closure and he crawled into my arms and began weeping for his "Little Girlfriend".
"Mommy, where's my little girlfriend? I need to find her."

Wow, his first broken heart from a girlfriend.

That is a pretty adorable story :)

And a nice reminder of kids innocence and cuteness even during 9/11 remembrances...

Oh my goodness, the shot with the feet -- I LOVE IT! That is very sweet that he found a little girlfriend...and that he missed her! But you had better watch out...if he is already a ladies' man, I don't even want to THINK about what the teen years could be like...
