On the weekend my parents, sister-in-law and I took my nephews to a Christmas party at the community centre nearby my place. For a $1 entrance fee there were about 10 different stations/areas of activities for the kids. They also handed out coffee, popcorn and candy for free. And when you redeemed your ticket you got a can of pop and cookies. My nephews decorated gingerbread cookies, made Christmas ornaments and got fake tattoos. A great deal for only a buck.
We all ended up in the gym area of the rec centre. There were 3 huge inflated playgrounds inside. Then scattered around the parameter of the gym were various games. There was a stage in the centre where these two volunteers danced up a storm for the kids, who followed along. It was really cute, especially when my oldest nephew, almost 5 years old, tried to mack on some older girl who was dancing. I almost peed in my pants laughing so hard cause it was so funny. Seriously.
There was this little boy, probably about 2 years old standing nearby me as I was sitting on a bench watching the dancing. I wasn’t paying much attention to him, but he was pretty cute. Suddenly, I felt this little hand on my knee. I look over and there he was, little guy decided to rest his hand on me, while leaning himself against me, oblivious to the fact that I’m a complete stranger. His mom looked over at me and we smiled and chuckled. He did this for about a good 5 minutes, with my dad taking a photo of it cause it was so cute. When he finally realized he was leaning against a stranger, he smiled shyly at me and moved away. Then, for a good 10 – 15 minutes he stood in front of me fixated. He kept smiling shyly, staring at me, while waving chocolate animal crackers at me. At one point his mom said to me “he really, really likes you” and we laughed.
I know, I have this effect on younger men, they see me and want me…lol..yeah, right. It was certainly a cute moment in the middle of all this craziness in the gym. 😉
