So my Oliver brings all the girls to the yard lala la lala…and it’s no doubt milk rather than milkshakes seniors he’s still at pre-school (ha!)

Recently though, I’ve been witnessing young girls are starting to notice him. He’s always been popular at nursery (in fact I remember a row of toddler girls standing by the window waving him off aged 2 1/2) but it’s becoming a little more obvious now!

Oliver-fire engine

…We’ve recently moved house and neighbouring girls have been giving him some innocent, sweet attention. Aged between 4 and 9, several ride outside our house on their scooters doing wheelie tricks and spins, innocently trying to engage with him. Two approached me the other day and commented they thought Oliver looked ‘cool’.

Oliver is enjoying forming bonds with these new friends (there was only a little boy close by to us in our old house) a smart, sensible, mature little boy, he gets on with everyone: girls and boys and is enjoying this new rights of passage.

And it’s really hitting home that my bambi eyed, floppy haired little hero is maturing and this formative time where children start to notice one another is happening-when he did grow up so quickly?!

I distinctly remember dating twins Jonathan and James (couldn’t choose) aged 4 at primary school walking hand in hand with both in the playground, so young love can start, well young…

It won’t be long until he’s chasing the girls himself no doubt and goodness knows what life will be like when he (and Alexander) become teenagers and start to actually date..help, I’m not sure I will ever be ready to share my boys!?

    Good luck with that! We’re having fun already with a 7 year old daughter, when did they get to grow up so quickly? Can’t they just stay our babies forever???

  2. Victoria Mylittlel

    I know exactly what you mean, my little boy is doe eyed and gorgeous too, and has me in giggles as he seems to have all the little girls eating out of his hand.

    Haha I can so relate. Jed was complaining again today about three girls who always give him cuddles in the playground and he has to run from them. Older women of course 😉 And trust you to date twins lol! Oliver’s a heartbreaker in training for sure x

    I’m not surprised he attracts attention, he’s so gorgeous! My oldest has already decided he is marrying his best friend (a girl). But I will never let him go mwah ha ha! x

    Dating twins at nursery school… you really are scandalous Ms Vicki!!

    I think you are going to have to get used to vying for Oliver’s attention amongst a sea of female admirers… but hey, a boy’s mummy will always be number 1!


  9. Elizabeth Holdsworth

    He is completely gorgeous. I have a seven year old daughter and the thought of her growing up and having boyfriends or girlfriends just terrifies me! Time seems to have gone so fast…

  10. Mummy Says

    Aw he is gorgeous! I’m not surprised the girls are trying to get his attention… 🙂 I dont think I will ever be ready either to share my Milin! Such a scary prospect! X
