We had a friend over this morning and it was perfectly blissful. The kids played superbly and there was barely any fighting, grabbing or arguing. He lulled me into a false sense of confidence that we could totally manage another.
Bean adored him and really took initiative in bringing him toys. I hope we didn't overwhelm him.
Mei was like his shadow a lot.
He was such a great sharer!
Obviously his mom takes a lot of pictures. My kids never look at the camera. Omigosh, look how cute they both are with their lovies!
We headed upstairs to read. The two of them loved when I made an elephant sound. You can see him pointing to an elephant now, which I think he called "fin." I think I might have also taught him to say "spi" for spider. His parents will need to confirm that.
We put Mei down for a nap, and I asked if they wanted to give kisses. I love her little grin after she gets one. Toddlers are so delicious!
Back to playing with the big boys after Mei went down. They are making a blueberry pie...obviously.
He stayed for lunch and liked my cooking too, so he's a keeper. We're looking forward to having him and maybe his siblings over again soon!
