He's got game, and a wingman

Little Elvis has decided to become a player. Not of a sport mind you, but a player in the game of love. His choice of wingman? Mommy.
Today we took him to play at a park that has baseball fields as well as the usual playground equipment.
At first, he was so not into the park. He wanted to be in the parking lot or nothing.

Then, he saw a cute little girl (we found out later that she was 3) riding around on a big wheel and literally chased her around the park. She tried to play with him earlier, but he didn't want anything to do with her until he spotted her wheels.

Poor little girl, who was wearing the most adorable crocheted cloche toboggan, finally managed to outrun us by a baseball field.

Bob and I tried to get Little Elvis to run the bases, instead he ran past first and into a group of three tweens playing some sort of invented sport. Two girls and a boy.

All three told him how cute he was. He looked at each of them, and then his eyes landed on one of the girls. Little Elvis was smitten. She bent down to say, "Hi," but he ran to me.
Not to hide. No, he grabbed my hand and pulled me over to her. I gave him the confidence to say hi. We told her his name, and she wrote it in the sand for him. He traced her letters.

She complimented his very dirty outfit and he chattered to her. Then, he grabbed her hand and began pulling her across the field.

Once we got too close to a baseball practice, Bob was able to divert him. He happily waved goodbye to his new girlfriend and she ran back to her buddies.

I hope breakups will always be this easy.
