In other news, we finally found a California sticker for our rooftop travel pod. I’m not usually a bumper sticker person, but we got this pod specifically for the move and it was fun slapping stickers on it along the way. We started on the right with Eastern Shore and Bold Mariner stickers, and worked our way left as we progressed across the map. Ta-da! It is finished!
“Eloise! Eloise!” I heard faintly. I looked around. Did I mis-hear that, or is there another Eloise?
“Eloise! Eeeeeeloise!” Eloise, ahead of me, heard it too. She spun around and looked up.
“Hi ELOISE! Do you want to play?”
A three-year-old boy in nothing but his underwear was reaching through his balcony. “Do you want to play with me?”
“Ba ba babba da ba play!” said Eloise, looking up at him and pointing to the playground.
This went back and forth for awhile. They were having an actual conversation, and once in a while I even understood some of it, like eavesdropping abroad. Isaac eventually stepped off the playground to see who Eloise was talking to and tell her to come play with him.
Her first admirer! I guess she and Underwear Romeo played on the playground another day. Adorable!
