Flirt

Shit.

Oh shitting shit.

I really thought I'd have a bit longer than nine weeks before I'd have to start worrying about this.

Mrs L took The Creature to a postnatal group today. When I got home from work today I was told "Cam was flirting with Tilly today".

The Cad.

As the story was retold to me, my boy, who clearly hasn't inherited his dad's paralysing shyness with the opposite sex, was sat on Mrs L's lap, facing the room. Tilly, AN OLDER WOMAN, sits a few feet away, all mystical allure and big eyes. Tempting him. Like some tiny minx. I bet she was showing off loads of flesh.

Anyway. Mrs L notices that Flirty McFlirt (Tilly) is making eyes at The Creature. Rather than give him a quick sex education lesson, she leans round to discover that Cam is breaking out the grinniest grin his gummy little mouth has yet produced.

Form an orderly queue ladies...
Worse still, they are exhibitionists. The whole postnatal group is watching. Cheering them on, as if baby flirting is something which should be encouraged. Shocking. I expect this is the kind of behaviour that comes from too much Fifty Shades of Grey.

Thankfully, a complete lack of motive abilities on either child's part meant that a meeting of eyes and exchange of smiles was as far as it went. Realising the limitations of his amorous endeavour, The Creature promptly fell asleep. This is probably a scenario which will come to be familiar to him in later life, so it's good he's getting some practise.

I'm really quite proud of the little guy. Not because I really think he was flirting. That would be extremely silly. But that smile was real interaction without ridiculous provocation. Usually it's me getting up close and pulling faces at him that elicits such things. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that a pretty girl has done a better job.

This is just the start of course. Before I know it I'll be hearing tales of kiss chase in the school playground. Then, after that, I'll be NOT hearing about first kisses and first, erm, other things. Eep.

Now, how young is too young for the chat about the birds and bees (whatever that means)?

  1. Cam is a handsome chap so its no wonder this little lady was making eyes. Well done Cam. I took Layla on a pre school trip, well all I can say is what a bloody insight! Layla led the boys a merry dance round this field and she loved it, at one point 2 boys were hugging and kissing her cheeks and she put up no fight. I'll have to keep my eye on this one and I won't be telling her dad haha.

    1. The little hint of smile in that picture is nothing compared to the wide-mouthed grins he's busting out now!

  3. Look at that face. Look at those eyes!!! As his father, you are in trouble. Expect a lot of stern knocking on doors from fathers of girls.
    *swoon*
    Alex does this a lot. Flirts all the time. Girls, old women, female relatives (its a dodgy area), butch lesbians (I kid you not) if it is a woman he will flirt with it.
    I expect grandchildren at an early age.

    1. My god, I'd never thought of that! I was just glad I had a boy and wouldn't have to worry too much about what he's up to, but I might actually get in trouble!

  4. Who would be able to resist that little face I ask you?? Munch flirts shamelessly all the time - it's even worse now he has mastered the ability to cock his head to one side and crack his beaming smile. Age holds no boundaries for him either!

    Wait! I can hear his father starting to build the dungeon already ;)

  5. I was in Clarks the other day and Bob met a little boy about 18 months old. Before they had even said 'Hello,' they started kissing! He didn't even buy her a drink first! ;0)
