Cousin Spike Jnr, is in love… with Padme.
It would seem that even after a couple of long weeks romantic deliberation, that Shakira has been officially usurped by Padme as the ‘one and only’ our shorts-wearing young nipper is now besotted by.
“I still like Shakira daddy, but Padme is my true love, really”
These were the words of a short 5 year old Romeo, whispered in his daddy’s ear as we waited for the school bus at 7:45 this morning. Perhaps love is not so fickle after all. Come to think of it, he’s been with Padme for longer than some of my teenage engagements lasted!
Not wholly convinced by the short dude’s long-term commitment to this attractive new target for his affections and poetry, I did one of those dreaded ‘parent things’; I committed one of the cardinal sins I promised myself I would never stoop so low to consider as a parent… I went to check out his bedroom after he had gone to school.
I guess it is official…. for this is what I found he’d chalked onto his blackboard in his bedroom. It’s a self-portrait of our little Tonto and a picture of his Padme (note the words he’s placed under their picture).
So I guess I’d better scrub the idea of having a Latin wedding for the foreseeable… oh well, it might be all change with the clocks in a few weeks.
