I sit here and I have a friend of Mairin over to play and they are downstairs playing house...I has been over an hour since I have heard from them. I can't tell you how much I love "good" playdates. I took the babies this morning to the library for "wee play". The library is 2 miles down the road and they have a 1.5 hour play session for kids 6mo to 24mo. They put a bunch of toys in a confined room and the parents talk while the kids play. It went great and I think it is something we should do every Thursday. The most interesting part was that I was the only mom there. Yes it was a room full of kids and their "nannies". One of the first questions to me was, "are they yours"? I think it just woke me up to say..."wow there are a ton of mom's out there that are working and wow there are a ton of nannies out there". Everyone was so nice so it was a great morning.
Lots of activity for the rest of the week. Huge playdate tomorrow....Im havin my friends over too. My girlfriend and her 2 kids are coming over, Eamon and Liam are having a couple of friends over. There is no school tomorrow for Mairin and a half day for the boys. Party to start at noon with pizza and then an afternoon of play while Sally and I catch up and chat in the family room....ahhhhh. At 7pm we are heading downtown with 6 ladies to Mexican Town for some good old Mexican to celebrate my sister, Heidi's birthday. We have hockey on Saturday and Sunday and a traditional birthday dinner for Heidi on Sunday.
