I'm number 2! I'm number 2!

Finn: I'm in love.
Me: Really? With who?
Finn: Aleka. He's in my class.
Me: Oh? Does he love you too?
Finn: Well, he loves Bea, but when Bea isn't at school he loves me.
Me: And that's okay with you?
Finn: Yes, Bea hasn't had the chicken pox yet.
Me: Well, fingers crossed.

Yesterday when I picked Finn up from school she pointed Bea out to me. A year younger than Finn, pixie-like with blond hair to her waist - Bea looks an awful lot like a Disney princess. Younger, thinner, blonder...poor kid hasn't a clue that her life will be littered with Beas. Damn you, Bea. Damn you.

    Pixie or no, Finn's a cutie-pie AND she's got more moxie than ten Beas. And I bet she could totally kick Bea's butt if it came to it. Er, not that I condone violence, much less fighting over boys. But I'm just sayin'.

    That Finn is one tough little cookie - I never seen someone climb the high diving board at the pool with such gusto. Proud to everyone else and a little whisper in my ear "my bum hurts". No Bea will stand in the way of what Finn wants. Watch out boys!

    My Mom once said to me, "I'm glad you're not beautiful."

    At the time I was 17 with all the ravages of that time in life, crazy skin, glasses that my mom thought were 'practical', my ill-fitting thrift store clothes due to a emaciated clothing allowance.

    But I kinda understood what she meant. And I haven't yet met a grown-up "Bea" that I really like - not sure what that means but...

    Take care Finn!
