Boys will be Boys

I am not sure the last time I wrote but I know it has not been in at least a couple of days. Parker just went down for his nap and my wife is taking a trip downstairs to use the computer on the main floor. Nothing major has occurred in the past couple of days but I thought I would at least update everyone on Parker's latest escapade.

Parker has not seen his friend since the last time that I wrote. I think the mother is feeling a little under the weather and for that reason they have not been out in the halls nearly as much as they normally would. To be honest, we would not let Parker play with his little buddy even if he were available for play since the last thing we need is Parker catching whatever the mother had through his friend.

We did meet another family a couple of days ago. They are from Ireland and have two little girls that are both older than Parker. One is two and the other four. It is very funny watching Parker interact with them as they are much more mature and proper than his other friend. Let me see if I can best explain their most interesting encounter together.

It was by the elevators where Parker normally meets up with his friend Francesco. The two girls in their pastel coloured dresses both hold their mother's hands as they watch Parker parade in front of them. The youngest eats a peach while staring at my son doing his best to be the centre of attraction. You know how little boys are when they want a girl to notice them. First, he spins in a circle, then when that does not work he shakes his head and bounces up and down as he would if he were dancing to his favourite song. Still nothing. Not even a hello. Then he laughs, and looks at me to pick him up and hang him inverted from his feet so they can see how much fun he is. Foolish energy, I call it, and it gets him only a confused look from the younger of the two. Then, he starts to run in a circle, first a small one, followed by a larger one, each one getting larger than the one previous, and then finally a circle big enough that the little girl is now in his path. Then, when he decided that no one else sees it, Parker's hands go up in front of him. As he approaches her from behind he sees his opportunity, and with all of his might he extends his arms out in front of him. But then he realises it. His attempt to get the little girl to notice him has been foiled as he looks down at his hands to see that daddy was now holding them. “Bye, bye”, he says as he waves to her from above as daddy carries him away. Then, the little girl looks up at Parker as she extends her arm out that holds the peach, returning the smile.
