Play Date

Alden had a play date at Sophia's house this weekend. She promptly took his hand and they disappeared into her room for a solid half an hour before Alden realized that there were no adults around and started getting nervous. He took a basket of plastic food out of Sophia's room down to the living room where we had gathered for tea and asked me to play groceries with him. I think Sophia was a little hurt by the snub. We eventually convinced Alden to resume a game of hide-and-go-seek with Sophia and they got back into the swing of things. It was really nice not to have to entertain a kid constantly or to be interrupted every 30 seconds with a gastronomic demand or ploy for attention. I got to talk gardens with Sophia's folks and enjoy some wonderful dal and cheese sandwiches for lunch. Yay play dates!
