Outside of family, we really don’t get invited to many play dates. Our schedules are always crazy-hectic and most playdates happen during the day in the middle of the week, so I was really excited when my friend invited me over this evening for dinner and a chance for the kids to play. The kids ate and then played for awhile, wearing themselves out so that by the time we got back to the house they were ready for bed. I’m thankful to my friend for making the time to host my little family for the evening. We really enjoyed it!
Yesterday was my parents’ fortieth anniversary. They have been married 40 years! Wow, that’s a long time. One of the things that I love about my parents is how well they fit together. My dad is just as smitten with my mom as on the day they met and I find that so sweet and refreshing. I remember they had just celebrated their 30th when Tim and I got married.
Baby E fell out of bed last night. I should have seen it coming considering how top heavy the poor fellow is. Normally he sleeps with his head by the wall but last night he decided to turn himself around, leaving his large noggin perilously close to the edge of the bed. I guess gravity did its thing as he slept and in the middle of the night we were greeting with yells from the kids’ corner. When we got there it took a minute for my mind to catch up to what was happening and we found Baby E on the floor, crying, but still half asleep. Thankfully he went back to sleep quickly!
