My little "mac daddy"

This sweet little girl held Ethan's hand and helped him navigate rough terrain on our field trip to the farm this month. She never took her eyes off Ethan, I was so moved by that. 

This morning when I dropped Ethan off at school one of the teachers aids told me a story about how Ethan is the "mac daddy" of the class. I looked this term up on the urban slang dictionary, just to be sure that it meant what I thought it meant :-)

"The mac daddy is the man who means everything (and the only man who really means anything) to his ladies (of the night)"

Um....cool?

I guess there are several girls in his class who like to help him throughout the day and there have even been a few fights breaking out lately over who gets to sit near him and help him unpack his lunch. One little girl reportedly said "I want Ethan to be MY husband"! Apparently he is surrounded by girls on the playground everyday as well; they all like to help him in and out of the cozy coupe. 

I never expected it to start this early, but it really makes sense when you consider the fact that many 3 and 4 year old girls really like to "mother" and Ethan is one of those kids who needs a lot of help doing everyday skills. He's an ideal classmate for a sweet little girl who enjoys helping and taking care of others. I'm thankful that there are so many of them in his class this year :-)

You had to look up mac daddy?! You crack me up!

Emmi's class has five girls and one boy. I kind of felt sorry for him surrounded by all those girls, but then his dad said, "Why," in a way that completely implied it was the best situation for any man.
