Ladies Man

Ever since we've come to Bahrain, sonny's stock seems to have gone up........ with the ladies.
Yeah, you read that right. A 2 year old - has his female following.

Sample this.
It was our first day in Bahrain. I took sonny down to the pool, to burn off some extra energy. Sonny ran to sit at the edge of the pool. A lady swam up to us and asked sonny is he wished to join them in the pool. Stranger anxiety has never ever left sonny and he just ran away from her. We went to the kids pool. A lil girl of about 6 came running to join us there. She tapped sonny on the head, kissed him on his head, tummy, arms.....like sonny was her own sibling. She wanted to play with him, but as usual sonny ran away from her. But she continued to meet sonny everyday - in the same fashion, smothering him with kisses, tickling him, trying to play with him.

A few days later, we were joined by M. M is an expert swimmer and she'd dive under the water and kiss sonny's feet there. She'd beg me to let sonny go with her into the adults pool. If you havent already guessed - I acted like the mean mom and refused to let sonny go there. Between M and H, sonny had a whale of a time. If H refused something, he'd go to M and vice versa.

Then there was R. R's father and hubby work together and the kids play together. When we leave, R runs after sonny wanting to give him a good-bye kiss. Shy sonny runs and hides behind his ma. She keeps chasing him around. And we'd joke about 'who is the girl and who is the boy, here?'

If he had a fan following at the hotel, outside the hotel was no better. We'd gone to Applebees for dinner. The waitress fussed over sonny, trying to play with him. Then she said, "what a good looking boy. will you marry me? I'll wait for you, ok?" We laughed over this - till the end of dinner. She got us the check and said "atleast tell me your name, how will I know who I am waiting for?"

I thought we'd heard enough. So I wrote this post and saved the draft, wanting to publish it later. We took sonny down to his 'adda' - the pool.
This time there was a new girl - Y. This 3 year old defined the word 'coquetry'. She looked at sonny out of the corner of her eye, and then purposefully stepped out of the pool. "Sonny, sonny, sonny" she called out. And sonny, the kid with stranger anxiety would start yelling to be picked out of the pool. Once out he would chase her around. She would run, blowing him kisses. he'd get tired and stop chasing her - so she'd start chasing him. It was good fun to watch Romeo and Juliet in action. All was well - until H arrived at the scene and saw sonny frolicking with a new friend. So she jumps into the action - so we have sonny chasing Y and H chasing sonny. H decides she's had enough. Sonny has to choose who he wants to play with. If not, "I'm leaving" she announces. And flounces off. Y's mom and I are in splits now.
Peace prevails when Y's mom hauls her away and H and sonny go back to play.

And as hubby's sis put it, "STS, you got to see your son's first courtship, first hand. how many moms can say that?"
