That didn't happen in Florida. It didn't happen in Georgia. And I kind of forgot that I ever wondered that.... it just didn't seem to happen in this day and age.
Took me a while to realize it, but - it's happening here. :) More often than not these days, Elayna brings a friend or two home from school - I have kids doing their homework together at my kitchen table, kids watching anime, kids drawing - always kids drawing and writing - she's fallen in with a really creative crowd.
I'm the mom I thought maybe I'd like to be. In more ways than just this, and most of those deliberate! But... without trying, I'm the fun geeky mom that the kids like.
I like it.
I should totally bake cookies next time. :)
And this is, of course, fantastic for Elayna - she never really had a social circle in Atlanta, not like she has here. What she's developing here is wonderful. :)
