Toddlers in Love

February 6th, 2012

That’s Buggie’s girlfriend.  We’ll call her Butterfly.  Buggie and Butterfly have been going steady for a little over a year.  It was true love the moment she arrived in his Infant 1 daycare class.

Butterfly is petite, nearly bald, and stoic.  Stoic to the point of being disconcerting when she fixes her old-soul eyes on you.  That child never cracks a smile…

…except for Buggie.

When we arrive in the morning, she dances on her toes, breaks into a megawatt grin, and races across the room for a hug.  Which he’s happy to return. In the afternoon, my Romeo will not leave — will not — without being permitted to hug his gal.  If I make the mistake of picking him up before his goodbyes have been said, he fusses and flails and squirms until I put him down.

Ah, young love.
