Kiss the girls

Kiss the girls

Our little cheeky monkey is a charmer.  At only 18 months of age he knows how to turn it on to woo the ladies. Any lady in fact.  Whether we are in a queue at a coffee shop, shopping at the supermarket, or wandering around the zoo, he draws female attention like a magnet.

He is also pretty adept at finding the prettiest little girl in a room and showering her with attention.  But where has he got this from?  My husband swears it isn’t him, although I am often suspicious of the amount of time he spends at play barns; and I certainly don’t give women the eye.

Harry doles out kisses freely, whilst he gives them to me only when he wants something.  Should I break this pattern?  If I leave it, am I setting myself up for trouble as he moves in to his teenage years?

On reflection perhaps it is in the genes.  I tend to get attention from anyone that fits in to the “vulnerable adult” category.  Over the years I have had quite a few weird and wacky conversations and not all of them instigated by me.    So I guess it could be worse.

For now I am happy to sit back and be proud that my son is confident enough to interact with others,  bribe my little cheeky monkey for more kisses, and oh yes….spy on my husband at play barns.

      I agree with you entirely. I never want him to lose that confidence either so all future girlfriends will be put through a strict vetting process 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by.

    We have a ‘flirt’ too! I don’t think it’s anything to worry about. It’s just natural toddler behaviour (for some who aren’t shy) and it has nowt to do with what his behaviour will be like as a teenager. He’s simply worked out how to get attention and when he gets a nice response from someone he does it more to see if it works again. He may turn out to be a really shy teen!

      Thanks for getting in touch. In our household I don’t think there is much chance of H being shy haha

    Do women tend to shower him with affection too? My daughters have the ability to seek out the educator in any room!
