Love and Friendship Bloom in Red Rose

Lucas has been enjoying making new friends at kindergarten. He is so warm and full of love when other children are nice to him and befriend him.

Today, when we picked Lucas up from school, he said, “Did you see Devin give me a hug today? Devin is my best friend. He loves me with all his heart and I love him with all my heart.”
Ian and I responded affirmatively. “Yes, it’s wonderful to have good friends and to be a good friend,” etc., etc.
“I’m gonna marry Devin. Two boys can be married, you know. And two girls can be married, too. We’ll be married, me and Devin … and Mina. Two boys and one girl.”
“OK, Lucas,” I replied.

Later it was more of the same. “Devin and I are going to be married with Mina. And we’ll live in a house with red walls and a blue floor.”

I think the fascination with Devin is the result of several factors: (1) Devin is turning 6 on Halloween—way cool, (2) Devin invited Lucas to his pirate birthday party, (3) Devin and Lucas played together this past summer at the Bs’ preschool, so they already know each other pretty well, and (4) Devin is a really nice kid who pays attention to and plays with Lucas.

I think Devin’s pretty handsome, too.

    If Lucas turns out to be gay, this will make a pretty funny “Even when you were 4…” story. If he doesn’t turn out to be gay, it will make a pretty funny “you wanted to marry a boy…” story.

    Hee. He’s such a doll. Mostly I love that his parents smile and love on him and say “Okay, Lucas” without blinking. It’s beautiful.
