Sophia kissed a boy!
I never thought I would see the day when my little girl would kiss her first boy. Nor did I ever think that I would take place at such a young age – she is only a 6 years-old after all. And I would have never guessed that it would happen at an Old Navy.
I remember being in shock when it happened. Mike looked at me just as bewildered by the fact that our little girl kissed a boy – a complete stranger for that matter. I think we both had to do a double take because there was no way it could have been real. She’s only 6! I think I was even more thrown by the fact that she did it more than once and right in the front of the store. She had this look of accomplishment about her that I wasn’t too pleased with either. Now, I was a curious kid (and I know Mike was too) but I wasn’t 6! She just kissed a little boy in public! The store was packed – there was a $1 flip flop sale – and she had no shame at all. If this is any indication of what her teenage future holds then I am going to have to be heavily sedated through those years. There is no way I can deal with what’s to come when this small first was too much to handle.
And the nerve of that little boy! Just standing there with that smug smile on his face. I had half a mind to yell at him or shake him or something for kissing my baby. Talk about ballsy. Worst of all his mother was standing right next to him and did nothing. Really?! At least Mike and I were shocked (more like ashamed). She just stood there stiff as a board but looking incredibly pleased. Granted, my daughter is gorgeous and her son probably won’t ever kiss another girl of that caliber….nonetheless do something if you are right there! Right? Ugh. I should have shoved my $1 flip flops where the sun don’t shine. What a dummy! No I am not being too harsh. She was a dummy…. as in a mannequin. Did I fail to mention that?
So yeah, my daughter kissed (more like made out with) a little boy mannequin on display at the front of an Old Navy. Not sure what came over her or why exactly she felt the need to smooch the wooden boy but she did. I don’t know – maybe she thought he would turn into a real boy?! Regardless of her logic (or lack there of), I doubt that the little mannequin boy will ever get a better kiss in his life.
