They grow up so fast

Tonight I baby-sat my high school boyfriend’s little sister.  She was 2 — 4 years old while we dated, and now she is 7 (almost 8, thankyouverymuch).  And while I could talk about the crazy time-warp that occurred as I walked through that familiar old white picket fence into their cozy house, I won’t.  Because I had far too much fun playing Hide and go Seek with 2 American Girl dolls and my favorite little girl in the whole world.  I learned how to be a Bella Ballerina, made a peanut butter and jelly snack, and listened to Yankee Doodle played by the lil’ one.  All before her 8:30 bedtime.  A very swell night indeed.

And while she was fixing her PB&J, we managed to get on the subject of boys.  (She is left-handed.  Her best friend is left-handed.  Her best friend has a twin brother.)

Lil’ one:  Well.  My friend thinks that her brother likes me.

Me:  Oh?  And what do you think about that?

Lil’ one:  Blech.

(We laugh)

Lil’ one: I mean I like him as a friend.  But not as a boyfriend.



  1. This just made my day. It’s things like this that make me think maybe, just MAYBE, one day I’ll be able to fathom one of my own… 🙂
