Playdate!!

This afternoon we got to spend a little time with some friends. I can't tell you how nice it was to watch the Bubs play with his friends and to be able to chat with mine. Bliss!


I met Mandy and Erin through my church at a family fellowship event. Mandy and Erin were already close friends and they welcomed me and the Bubs right into their circle. With their easy and no-nonsense manner, they put us both at ease. This is huge to me as I tend to tense up when I'm in a social setting by myself. I've gotten too used to my hubby being with me as a buffer. Silly, I know, but very true.

Fun was had by all and it was a nice respite from the everyday monotony that can sometimes creep in at our house. Thanks Erin and Mandy!

***Forgive me for the rather short post! I have to keep it short tonight because I've got an early and busy day tomorrow. I'm going to my Dad's 1st grade classroom to read a Dr. Seuss book to his children. I absolutely LOVE reading to kids! It will be nice to be in a classroom again, too. (I was a Teacher's Assistant for around 4 years before I decided to be a "professional mom".)

so glad you got some time with friends. I'm supposed to but looks like our winter weather will cancel that out. Enjoy your time with friends and being a professional mom!
