Mr. Boy's First Crush

You may or may not remember from this post, where Mr. Boy hid behind a trash can, while brave AK went up to talk to the one and only Miss Mary Poppins at Disneyland.  When AK returned, Mr. Boy grilled her for details, including, "Did she smell like Marshmallows?" 

Yesterday, while roaming Disneyland we happened upon Mary Poppins and Bert. AK and her friend happily went up to greet them.  Mr. Boy kept his distance, but kept stealing glances out of the corner of his eye.   Oh yes, he still loves her.   
And apparently she loves him as well.  As we were getting ready to leave Mary Poppins winked at him and blew him a kiss.  Mr. Boy was mortified, but under those embarrassingly red cheeks he was secretly elated. 
Last night, as I tucked him into bed he asked, "Is Mary Poppins married to Bert?"  When I replied, "I think they are just dear friends."  He smiled and said, "Good, um... I mean that's nice"  
PS AK answered yes, Mary Poppins really does smell like Marshmallows.
