Smiling on command is Oliver's newest trick.
Last night we had very mild weather so the three of us went for a walk. As we were getting close to home again, we let Oliver out of the wagon so he could run along the sidewalk. He was having so much fun.
[points] Uh. Uh. "Yes honey, that is a rock"
[points] Uh. Uh. "Oh, do you see a bird?"
And so on. And so on.
Then we came to a yard with a chain link fence with three little kids. When they saw us coming they ran up to the fence to say hi. I think they were about 5, 4 and 2 1/2-- the youngest one was a girl.
Oliver went right up to them to say hi. He liked the little girl, she had a puffy pink coat and braids with barets it her hair.
Before I knew it, he walked right up to her and kissed her through the fence. Her emphatic response? "I love you baby!"
I about died.
Apparently we are kissing strange girls we meet on the street.
I guess there could be worse things!
What a heartbreaker.
