planning ahead can be cute.
i’ve written before about jools and his BFF M, who decided to marry when they were in kindergarten and then decided to be BFFs instead last year. she is so very sweet to him and seems to understand him in a way that no one else seems to do.
today, M and jools had a playdate. jools thought about changing his shirt before he went; he wanted to look (his) best, he said, though he wouldn’t elaborate. when we were getting into the car, he ran suddenly back into the car. he ran back out about a minute later. when i asked him what he did, he told me that he had taken a piece of candy from his halloween bag for M and one for him. if he had done that for anyone else, i think i would have wondered about ulterior motives; but when it comes to M, i know he just simply adores her.
anyway, after i picked him up from the playdate, i asked him what they did. we just spun around and around, he said, and we had a snack.
oh, he added, we decided that when we have kids, we are gonna let them eat all the junk food they want as long as they don’t get sick.
ah, yes. nothing telling in that statement.
