SNUGGLE BOY…

Morning tears have not been heard in some months from the kindergartener (aka K-girl), so it was a shock when she burst into the bedroom bawling at 7.05am.
“I’M VERY SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD…I MISS COLIN AND I WANNA SEE HIM AND HE WON’T BE AT CAMP AND I’M SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD…”

Colin.
Little Colin.
We had heard about Colin a few days before, when K-girl announced that ‘Colin’ was her ‘snuggle boy’.
“When I rub his belly he laughs and laughs,” she said smiling.
Rubs his belly.
Snuggle boy.
K-girl was 5 in June, and whilst it’s true that she behaves with the verbal speed of a 7 year old (and the height to match) this still came as a bit of a surprise.

“Your ‘snuggle-boy’?” I’d asked. “What, so you snuggle with him?”
“Yeah, and when you tickle his belly he laughs and he’s really really nice.”

When you view it all in context, perhaps the morning sob wasn’t such a shock after all. On the way to summer camp that morning, K-girl looked at me and said,”I can’t go to camp today Daddy because Colin won’t be there and I only want to see Colin!”
“You’ll be fine,” I said
