I was at the mall earlier today with Regan. We were in one of the children’s stores and I noticed this little boy standing a few feet away staring at baby. He was clutching a bag of chips and a half-eaten sandwich. I smiled at him and waved and turned back to looking at sweaters. When I turned back around he was standing next to Regan in her stroller.
She was eating his sandwich.
I howled! I snatched the sandwich (which was an Italian sub bt-dubs) and went to find his mother. She apologized and I just laughed and told her it was okay. Fernando walked off, although he kept looking back checking for my baby. I’d say he was quite smitten.
We all made it to the cash register at the same time. Fernando was standing next to his mother, but he was watching Regan the entire time. Then, without a word, he walked over to Regan, reached in the potato chip bag, and handed her a chip. They both watched each other as they ate their chips. It was the cutest thing!
I surmised that he didn’t speak much English, and he was only about two years old, but he totally found a way to mack on my baby without saying a word.
