friends

A group of friends and I have been gathering on Friday mornings for a while now. The kids play and the parents chat. What would I do without these other crunchy Mamas to talk to and these lovely children for my kids to grow up with?

I even got to play around with my friend Liz's wide-angle lens on my new camera. Um, yes please! And speaking of my new camera, since I am completely obsessed, I've added a new section to my blog, a photo a day. Check it out. It's pretty self explanatory. I'll be posting one photo each day. Not necessarily from that day, but one a day nonetheless. So, even on days I don't do a regular post, there will be something new to look at! The link is on the left under "Miranda Makes..."

Playgroup wouldn't be complete without at least one stand-off between two stubborn toddlers...

The good news is this time it ended with an apology. I was surprised by Fiona's reaction to the squabble over the stroller. First, she hit (eek!) her friend Leo, but was then visibly upset for a couple minutes afterwards. I was holding her and she kept pointing at Leo and crying a little, so I asked her if she wanted to go apologize. She indicated for me to put her down and I did. She walked right over to Leo and touched him gently. Such sophisticated social lives these little ones lead...
