Grown-Up Nikolai

Yesterday Afternoon at the park:

N: That's my friend Ella (from school).
M: Oh, she seems nice.
N (matter of factly): Yeah.  We don't kiss on the lip anymore so we're buddies.  Ella, me and Rachel all play together on the playground.  We're great buddies.
M: (speechless).*

*Speechless didn't last forever and then we had a talk about not kissing anyone but family "on the lip" until at least age 23.  


  1. It's amazing how fast they grow up. Kissing... Thankfully Owen doesn't like physical affection. I'm hoping we won't have to worry about that one for a while. Now Adam on the other hand...

  2. There's always a surprise when raising kids!

  3. MARY! (totally random comment)--but I saw your sister in law's style files blog, and you didn't tell me they are now in Hong Kong!! That's where I served my mission--made me miss it. Hope they are doing well and enjoying it!
