Me: "Darling what are you doing?"
Farmboy: "Kissing Bindi"
Farmboy (whilst looking at me like I was an utter imbecile) "Because I love her"
He still has a soft spot for Bindi but his tastes seem to have matured somewhat. He is now in love with a couple of ten year olds we have dubbed "The Ripstick Girls", because they regularly ride their ripsticks (skateboard thingies) past The Beach House. They are pretty cute and The Farmer and I have taken advantage of his crush shamelessly. For example, if he won't eat his steak and vegies the conversation goes something along these lines.
Farmparent: "Eat your steak please"
Farmboy: "No, I don't feel like it."
Farmparent: "The Ripstick Girls like boys with big muscles. The best way to get big muscles is to eat lots of steak".
Recently he managed to persuade a gorgeous bikini clad teenage goddess to make sand castles with him for about half an hour. Even I was impressed that time.
The Farmer and I do think he might want to change his approach over the next few years. At present his initial line is
"Hi, I'm Farmboy. I love you."
What is cute (and very effective) at six, is just going to seem desperate (and slightly stalkerish) in a few years time.
He has had one absolute shining moment though, in his pursuit of the opposite sex. One day a very cute girl was standing on the bridge in the park near The Beach House. He clocked her, ran inside and came back with a remote control car. He then grabbed some daisies from the garden and taped them to the car. His plan was to drive the car up to her so she got the flowers. I think it was a stunning plan and would have worked brilliantly if the car did not have flat batteries...
