Splendor On The Mat
Today at the end of Gymboree, when most of the babies had packed up their diaper bags and headed to their car seats, a fifteen month-old, brown eyed, adorable little Greek boy, with a full head of hair, who can speak four languages, spoke the international language of love to our daughter. Yes, he tackled, grabbed, and planted a kiss smack on her lips right there on the green mat. It happened so fast it was a blur. I’m not even sure it was consensual. And still…their tumble and smooch “Splendor In The Grass” moment had all of us cooing. This marked the first time that she and he were aware of other babies on the mats. Really aware, apparently. They told us they grow up fast.
So when people ask her who was her first kiss, and she rattles off some dude from Junior High, I will correct her and say his name was Alexander.« Top »
