The Sweetest Little Guy

Friday, March 19, 2010
We’re lucky to have wonderful neighbors who have two darling kids, a boy who’ll be four soon and a two-year-old girl. Well, the little guy was in the yard today, observing our dog, who was pulling at her lead, wanting to play with him. So I went outside, let the dog loose and struck up a conversation. He asks a million questions. Today, one of them was, “If you sat on our deck steps forever, what would happen?” I told him I’d turn green with mold, so he started asking about the mold. His questions remind me of the ones my son used to ask . . . constantly.

Anyway, he asked me if there were any toys in our house, and I told him that some of my son’s trucks were in the basement for when kids visit. Naturally, he wanted to see them, so I took him down to our basement, where he fell in love with one of the Tonka front end loaders. He asked if he could maybe take it home for a few days. I told him he could.

Well, he was thrilled when he got the truck back on their deck and couldn't wait to play with it. Then this little boy, who hasn’t been very affectionate in front of me, blew me a kiss and said, “If I had a net, I’d put it over the railing and catch you and take you in my house, to play with me forever.” Now he owns my heart!
