….Leonardo and er, some girl at summer camp. Yes, he is a little sketchy on the details but, he is in love and engaged.
“Why?” I asked him.
“Mummy, you know I’m going to have dark hair when I grow up. She’s got dark curly hair. That’s the thing,” he explained.
“Lovely. What’s her name?”
“She’s called…er, I have no idea.”
He explained that she is one of a family of five children. And furthermore one of triplets. “You got the ones in the middle what’s this size,” he demonstrated to me. “Well she’s one of those.”
He is very sweet, talks about her all the time and calls her his girlfriend (mainly I am guessing because he can’t remember her name). She apparently calls him “cute boy” and loves his hair going to one side. He is very worried that he won’t see her when camp finishes tomorrow, but I have promised to get her number.
I feel bad for Miranda, but she did go to Venezuela for the summer. What’s a boy to do….?
