I’m happy to announce that Meredith celebrated her birthday with TWO friends at Build-a-Bear yesterday. (The dramatic set-up is here.) Long story shortened: After I gave up on Mom #2, I left a message for Mom #3. Less than 20 minutes later, Mom #2 called and we set up a plan. Shortly after we hung up, Mom #3 called, and we set up the same plan. (Let’s never speak of this again, shall we? So much completely unnecessary drama! (As most mom drama of this nature is, I suppose.))
Most importantly, both girls were absolutely delightful.
Gabby: Mrs. Pudding, I think we have a lot in common. Do you like to shop at Target?
Me: I do!
Gabby: I DO TOO!!!!!!
Josie: When I was in kindergarten we had Show and Tell every Friday. When they moved me up to first grade, I found out that we don’t have Show and Tell any more. And that’s disappointing. BUT, my dad is down at the book fair, and if he can find Where the Red Fern Grows, I won’t be disappointed any more.
Meredith: I was going to build a bunny today, but when I saw the pony, my heart melted right down into my lungs!
So, anyway. All is well. AND this week will find me attending my first PTO meeting, rushing to a dentist appointment at 7:00 in the morning, and visiting with Bossy at Bailey’s Chocolate Bar. It doesn’t get much better than that.
