First Love at First Sight

Last Friday afternoon (November 5th) was very special to me. I got to pick Sam up from school and got to hang out with him at the mall afterwards. Since I'm a working mom, the privilege of taking Sam to school and picking him up is rare while my in-laws normally do this job for me.

So when I picked Sam up, I asked him where he would like to go. I gave him several options. After thinking for a while, he said, "Mommy, I wanna go to the mall!" So then we went to the mall and there we ate and ran around and played and did some shopping. In one of the shops (OLD NAVY), they had a bunch of mannequins on display by the entrance door. Among those, Sam spotted a new friend. He calls her, SAM'S FRIEND.

It was funny how he was so fond of her. I don't know if he even realized that she's not real. It was love at first sight! They just hit it right off! LOL

I asked him to take a picture with SAM's FRIEND. It was interesting how Sam was very cooperative that time. He usually doesn't like being photographed but that day was an exception. Sam did several poses - wrapped his arms around her shoulder, put his hand on her head, embraced her...and all that. He really had did I! People were watching us while taking pictures. They were the cutest ever. I couldn't believe my 3 year old son has a one sided love affair with a mannequin. Bless his heart!

We went back to visit Sam's FRIEND at the mall a few times since that day. Everytime, Sam would give her a big warm hug. Just so adorable!

Anyways, I thought I'd share some of the photos I picked out of so many. I made a powerpoint presentation and converted it into a video called MY EYES ADORED YOU.  Hope you enjoy watching...if not...oh well, what a shame! (^_*)

  • Thanks, Kemal.
    So...are you admitting that you had loved at first sight?
  • Yeah, Sandra...they are innocent until proven guilty! LOL
  • Birthday girl...I know you have so many kiddos around. How are they doing? Have you taught them the latest dance moves yet? I can't forget your dance video, LOL! You were cuter than the kids. Hey, anyways, thanks much for reading and watching my post. Keep in touch, ok?
  • Beckham, it's good to hear from you. I haven't seen you in a while.
    Thank you, Attari, Mouhamadou, and others. Glad you liked it.
  • Abdel, I have no personal testimony about love at first sight. You are right, any little boy would surely choose that so adorable little mannequin. And whether Sam felt love or not, who knows? But one thing I know...little kids are pure in heart. They have no pretensions whatsoever. The way adults express love is different from little children. We often forget that love is not just about two people wanting and needing each other. For kids is so much simpler...yet simple enough to make you nod your head and say..."Oh yeah, that is love!" Just like when a 4 year old girl was asked what love is, she just simply described it this way: "LOVE is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day."
  • it's a very good story, I like it very much!
  • Sorry, I dont beleive at all in love at first sight, i think personnaly that Sam shoud choose this girls "Sam's freind" simly because all ohters manquins are older than him and every boy in his 3 years old will chose the same one. There is no love in your story Ohnie but i like your video and Sam is a pretty boy :))
  • it is his instinct-a man,even he is just 3 years old now ,he choose a female as his friend at the first sight
  • I like it.
  • Thanks, Anu. I thought so too...Sam and his FRIEND looked good together, heheh.
    Deuce, yup, same old pictures. (^_*)
    Nebia, thank you. I'm not much into blog writing but I tried. I thought, oh well, everyone has room for improvement, including ME!
