Anyway, I finally got them into the building and inside the Girl's classroom. That's when it started to get interesting. The Wife and I have known for a while that one of the Girl's best friends at school is a little boy, we'll call him Josiah. Other than Josiah, though, the Girl only talks about other girls when we ask her about school. Today made me think that Josiah might not be the only boy we have to worry about.
First of all, the Girl was taking her coat and backpack off and hanging them up in one of the little cubicles that are there for that purpose. A little boy, let's call him Pierre, came in just after us, and started to hang his coat up at the other end of the row of cubicles. But, he must have decided he didn't like that cubicle, since he started moving towards the Girl, eyeballing each empty cubicle as he went. Finally, he chose the cubicle right next to the Girl's, where he hung up his coat and backpack. His Grandpa, who was dropping him off, said "What, you gotta be right next to your girlfriend?!" At that, Pierre turned a bright shade of red and slunk away to the other side of the room.
After the Girl got her coat hung up, yet another boy, we'll call him Eddie, came charging up to the Girl and asked her is she wanted to go play with the blocks with him. Before I could blink they went off to play. She didn't even give me her normal good-bye hug. I'm not sure she even knew I was still there.
