I didn’t expect it. We got in the car, and Jake said “Mama, please put on R’s song”. Whoa. She has a song. If you missed the previous post about this ongoing love triangle, you cand find it here (https://momdrobe.wordpress.com/2010/06/22/tale-of-two-girls/). So now R has a song. I’m not even sure what to make of it.
“Jake, which song is it?”
“But there’s only 4 songs on this CD”
“Mama, that’s it” (as he sees the number 3 come up on the dash).
Belinda’s voice rings out over our speakers “Oooh, baby, do you know what that’s worth? Oooh, heaven is a place on earth. They say in heaven, love comes first. We’ll make heaven a place on earth”
Ok, what’s a mom to do? Not only is my son smitten, he’s now chosen a love song. I hold on, hoping this is a phase. Hoping that the extra attention he’s getting from her is causing this absurd infatuation…knowing that it’s really only the start.
I am in denial…unrequited, 4-year-old love. Who would have thought?
