Dear Luca

You have a girlfriend, her name’s Iona and you play with her often. Chloe is her mum and we have become very good friends since I moved to Brighton. Lately you’ve been getting closer. You kissed one another yesterday, Chloe walked into the living room and you were both huddled on the sofa with your arms around each other. I overheard you saying to Iona that you loved her. You say that to most people but I have a feeling it means just that little bit more with her.

You’re way too young to have a girlfriend, but the sentiment is really sweet and I’m just happy that you’ve made such a good friend.

Love mum
