Snapshots of a girlie date

G and her best friend A are having a very girlie playdate today. Kindred spirits these two are, since the day they met just over a year ago. My sister thinks it's so funny that little G has a best friend already - it is rather darling.

I brought the girls home after their play program this morning, as A's mom Bec had an appointment. They were so excited, to be together in one car for a change, side-by-side in my cluttered family room on wheels. They giggled the whole way.

Who's on First:
A: "Karen, what's your name?"
Me: "It's Karen, silly ..."
A: "G **, your mommy's name is Karen. My mommy's name is Mommy."
G: "No, your mommy's name is Becca. My mommy is Mommy."
A: "G , what's your name ..."

The Reluctant Houseguest
G: "A, do you want to come to my house?"
A: "No."
G: "But A, you love my house."
A: "Okay."

Someone watches too many Backyardigans reruns
We get home and the girls take off their shoes and socks right away. G brings her best friend to her bedroom and comes down with a hairclip. After she makes me clip it to her hair, she takes a big bow and says "I'm Queen of the Nile". The girls run off again laughing.



Sugar and spice and everything nice.

What is it with little ones and the need to divest themselves of their footwear the moment they hit the door? My son does this. I love that picture.

Thank you so much for your kind words. The people I am meeting and the comfort they have given me in the wake of this has been so helpful. ~Laura
