Lucky Me! I had myself a playdate! Jen and Willow came to visit us today! Thankfully, they showed up as my daughter had just wretchedly discovered The Power of The Song in Toy Story 2 that makes me cry and was on her third evil rewind.
I wish I had photo-documentation, but dh took the camera with him on his backpacking trip. Too bad, since there was no way to document the girl kiss.
Willow is by far the most polite four year old I have met in a long time! She is effusive with her manners; blushing and saying "Thank you for saying that! Thank you so much for saying that!" over and over upon being told she could keep a small toy that caught her eye.
I was getting slightly skeptical about her age (did her mom lie about her age? and why?) and/or that smiley, sunny face she kept using with me, until she finally told Jen off - when she asked Willow to help clean up.
Then I breathed a sigh of relief, that Willow is developing just perfectly!
Supergirl and Willow had a great afternoon; due in part to the fact that Jen and I had just so very much to talk about, that the girls were pretty much allowed to get out any and every toy. And they did!
You know what? It was well worth it.
Oh yes! We also traded delicious baked goods (she made lemon bars, I made pumpkin swirl bread)! And, you have to love a playdate who doesn't ask why there is a potato masher in the bathtub or cheerios all over the floor.
