Puppy love.

My son is in love with a red-haired girl.

Apparently, he asked her to marry him at Christmas and she said yes. And then today, when she dropped by for a visit with her mother and grandmother, he tried to weasel extra cookies for her.

Red-haired girl to her mother: "May I have two cookies?"
Her mother: "No. We're leaving in a minute."
My son to me: "May I have two... I mean, four cookies?"

Even more telling, when my older girls asked for candy canes, my son took one too. The little red-haired girl's mother said she couldn't have one though.

Me to my son: "If she's not having a candy cane, you shouldn't have one either."
My son: "Ok."

And he put it back. Not a single complaint.

When they were leaving, she ran back to the door, calling his name.

Red-haired girl: "I love you!"
My son: "I love you!"

I swear he almost blushed. It's all very sweet and amusing and charming. Unfortunately, they're related but hey... she's four, he's five, I'm pretty sure it won't last.
