Today, I was sitting at the park watching the kids play in the playground area when not one, but two school moms show up. One has kids Ben’s age, the other has one Ben’s age and Sonja’s best friend number 2.
They had planned a get together, the twins and the girl, and the little 4yo, who is Sonja’s best friend, whom we haven’t seen in ages, was there to play along. WELL, the mom of the 8yo twins said ‘you’re welcome to come over too’ and am I ever glad I did. With so many kids to entertain one another, I actually got a chance to sit and talk to other adults.
Now the pasta is cooking, the hubby is bringing home wine, and the kids are partly bathed (her) and watching tv. What a nice day, to have a playdate and tonnes of fun, without actually planning it.
I love my neighbourhood. Too bad we might be moving….
