My son's girlfriend

Misha* had just turned four, my son was a month short of his third birthday. But nobody could have missed their chemistry when they danced together at the Christmas Party.
"Is Misha your friend?", I asked tentatively.
"No. Misha is my girlfriend!", he replied authoritatively.

"And who is your brother's girlfriend?", I prodded gently.
"He doesn't have one. Only I have a girlfriend."
"And the other girls, are they also your girlfriends?"
"No. Only Misha is my girlfriend."

I haven't yet made up my mind about whether I should be amused or worried.

Or happy that he is not commitment-phobic.
