the journal of a stay-at-home mom;
the things that fill my days...

It's been really interesting to see N's social skills start to emerge. I'll admit that with E I was way more proactive with getting her playdates and enrolling her in classes for tot's her age. But with this guy, I find myself justifying hanging out with his sister as enough, for everyone. Thankfully a lovely little arrangement fell right into my lap this summer; A family just down the street has a kindergartner and a little boy about N's age and they all get on famously. Sawyer comes over a handful of times during the week while mom and dad work. At first the boys would just play alone, once in a while checking on what the other was up to, but now their side by side play is melting into full force playing with a friend! It's hilarious watching them feel out social boundaries, and their two-word sentences don't get too far communication wise. So funny. I'm glad he has a buddy, and we couldn't ask for a sweeter first friend.
