When we lived in Chicago, we couldn’t really have people over because it was just too small. There is also the sad fact that old friends were hard to get together with and new people I met already had friends. We have only been back in Michigan for three weeks and already have a bustling social life!
Today, the mom I used to work for brought her 2 1/2 year old and 11 week old over. Ellie and Wallace had a great time tearing apart his room and fighting over toys (he isn’t used to sharing his toys). Us moms got to talk and feel social and I got to hold a baby. It ended naturally at when they started getting cranky. No one got hurt, nothing got broken, and they even ate a snack without making a mess. I will call that a success!
