This morning, instead of the usual BBC newsflash, we had some lovely BC time -- BB and I visited with our good friends A and C while BJ was at preschool. (Didja follow all those initials? LOL!) It was really fun to see the girls together, laughing and playing. Rocking together in the overstuffed rocker was a particular hit; they were thrilled that they could move the chair All By Themselves! (Thanks, A, for the pic!)
I sometimes worry because BB doesn't have as many friends in her peer group as BJ did at her age -- I have simply been much more active with BJ's playgroup than I've been able to be with BB's. But then again, at this point in his social development, BJ had not made anything like the sort of friendship that BB seems to have with C. Quality vs. quantity, I suppose. And if BB is anything like her mother, she'll choose quality every time.
A fun afternoon, too. Did a Skype call with Pop-pop and Giki so that they could watch the kids open their gifts. We'd decided not to lug all the presents to Nana's house for Christmas proper and instead to spread things out over the next bit. Definitely the right choice, especially given my folks' generosity. For BB: an adorable Corolle doll and doll bed; for BJ: a nifty dictionary and an automoblox car building set; for both to share: dado blocks, bristle blocks, and a wonderful play set of cookware and dishes. BJ was quick to inform us that his play kitchen suddenly has a dishwasher, since he now has play dishes in the kitchen.
Hope your day was as nice as ours!
