Over the weekend I took Buzz to the park, which I do most weekends. This park is a walking distance from our house, has swings and slides for the kids to play on. But unlike most parks everything is made out of wood and not metal and even the bottom of the slides etc has tunnels and something like a mini maze so the kids can play around them, going in and out. Buzz really enjoys going to this park and is very happy there.
Let me start again. This past weekend I took Buzz to the park. After her usual time on the swing, she moved on to the slides and then going through the tunnels. A lot of laughs were exchanged and hugs given every time she came out from the other end of the tunnel to find me there. Somewhere in the middle she sat down in the middle of the maze, playing peek-a-boo with me, along with playing with the wood chips that are on the ground to prevent kids from getting hurt if they fall.
While she was at it a couple of ladies came with a young boy who must have been about 4-6 months older than Buzz. He was making his way to the slide that Buzz was sitting under when Buzz saw him. The minute she saw him she gave out this big laugh. The l’il guy stopped right there in his track and looked at Buzz. Buzz laughed again..where it was mostly smiles for me..there were big gurgling laugh for the l’il guy. And that is it. He was hooked. He followed were ever she went. If he did not follow, she would laugh again and he would go running after.
Buzz wanted to come down the slide. So he wanted to come down the slide. Buzz wanted to go through the maze. He wanted to go through the maze. At no point did his eyes leave her. And Buzz she would look at him and look away, always calling him with her laugh. I swear if she was 10 or so years older I would say she was flirting with him for sure. We adults could not help but laugh at the drama unfolding in front of us.
Poor guy was totally charmed and even came running and kept waving bye till we were out of sight. And Buzz once we started to make our way out, she did not give the guy at backward glance.
I can only shake my head and think ‘Really..I mean Really!!!’
Please tell me this is not a glimpse in the future. At least not near future.
