My friend, for whom I made the memorial quilt, has a little boy who’s about my nephew’s age. They live out of town but were here on a visit, so the two of them and my brother’s family met up at my place last night for a play date.


The thing about toddlers is you don’t really have a lot of time to take pictures. I wish I could have captured Toby’s reaction to the event (surprisingly brave) or the time when the two little boys were both on my bed “resting” with cookies. It was a lot of fun.

I find that if I’m around kids,  I’m grateful for the quiet after they’re gone for about 15 minutes–but then I start to miss the noise.

Toby, however, tells me he does not.
