San likes girls

San has always liked girls. When he was little, he gravitated to them. He's even had a little following of girlfriends of many ages.

In this picture, we were at the Science Museum in Singapore and San was three. We had lost sight of him, and we were expecting him to be with his brothers. They were busy running around trying out the exhibits, which included pushing, turning and lifting things. These were all right up his alley. We had those natural moments of temporary panic, until we finally spotted him sitting with these girls from a school tour group. They hardly even notice he's there, as the are busy eating their Mickey D's, but he doesn't seem to mind. He's happy sitting there with his Blue's Clues shoes, next to a bunch of girls.

Once I was walking him to school, and every high school girl we passed called him by name and said hello. Finally I said, "San, do you like girls?" "Yes," he said. "I like big girls."

Advice anyone?

The story is heart-warming for sure. But even the picture is incredible. I love the way the areas of sunlight and shade work together to "put the spotlight" on the little man.

My eight-yr old just entered the phase where he thinks girls have kooties or something. Crazy kid! I wonder where he gets it...
