That's My Boy!

I dropped off Andrew with his babysitter, Donna, much later than I usually do. So, when he arrived he had already had breakfast and was ready to play with the other kids. There is another little girl, Mary, who is just a few months older and he adores her. "Baby Andoo" as the little girls call him, made his way to Mary to hug her. As soon as his hands touched her she recoiled backwards in horror. Well, this upset his balance and my sweet Andy-Pants fell into her and knocked her over. Mary cried. After both kids were picked up and dusted off my persistent boy attempted another hug, with the same disastrous results, and more tears from Mary.

After picking up both kids again I told Andrew to go give Ryann a hug (she's almost 2 1/2 and he's been good friends with her since birth). He toddled off to give Ryann a hug. As soon as he hugged her she embraced him as well, and then proceeded to give him a big smooch on the cheek!

It was just the cutest thing ever and I truly wish I had a camera in hand to capture the moment. I guess it's just a moment I'll have to save in my mind's eye . . . .


  1. awwww.
    I mean is there really anything better than hugging and being hugged back??

  3. So sweet!

    I actually popped over to agree with you about Tracy on The Biggest Loser, though! That chick bugs me, too!
