Little boy blue, come blow your horn

Church was long when you’re not quite two and the usually very cheerful little guy had had enough. It was over but his parents were still busy talking to their friends.

After he ran halfway across the foyer, I’m not quite sure whether he tripped or threw himself on the floor; I caught the motion out of my peripheral vision.

He let out a loud yowl of declaration for extra effect.

I went over to him from his oncoming direction, got down on all fours, and leaned my head down towards him with a curious grin. He was turned away but suddenly he bounced his up high like a sphinx, he grinned the biggest grin at me as if glad someone was in on the joke with him, then he leaped into the air with a happy dance and ran to his mommy.

I guess church turned out not quite so long after all.

Heh. A flare for the dramatic?

sweet — so many adults would simply ignore the child and berate his parents — you have a wonderful way of defusing the explosive parts

I must say that you have a way with youngsters.

Such a good approach, getting to his level. That is always true, isn’t it?
