We have a date!

It's approaching Easter and school will shut for a week or two. Lots of tired children in Tara's school, some crying and clinging to their parents at the school gate. Others just standing around looking a bit dazed and disinterested. Tara is visibly tired, but still smiling and skipping to school. I'm volunteering in her classroom again this afternoon so that might be one reason she is excited.

The good news is that we finally got an invitation to play at one of her her classmates house one day after school next week! I'm very excited for Tara. Her classmate's Mum is a lovely lady. We sometimes talk when we stand outside our kids' classroom at drop off or pick up time. That I think is the key to arranging children's play times. I don't mean it in a conniving, manipulative sense. What I mean is, when you talk to people, you get to know them and they get to know you and your child a bit more. It's natural to want to meet people who you find easy to talk to.

During random chats with other Mums you realize how similar some of our concerns are, and at other times how different.
