Play Date Day


Cooper had a play date with preschool pal Tyler. They had a ball.

When I reflect on my childhood, time with friends holds truly special memories. I suppose those recollections spur me to arrange play dates for my kids. Today, I designated Play Date Day. I arranged for two school friends to join the boys at our home.

As we moms know so well, play dates can go amazingly well or horribly wrong. They're sort of (to borrow a phrase from Forrest Gump) like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get.

Today, the play dates went well. The companions the boys selected were truly precious friends. But, a pack of boys playing together will: be physical, stay very busy, and wind each other up.

By the end of the day, I sought respite horizontally on the couch, wondering if I'd ever get up again. In the least, I'll be grateful to just watch four boys tomorrow.
