My playgroup meets every Wednesday morning. (Ostensibly, it's Buzzy's playgroup, but that's semantics. From my limited observation, apart from the inevitable tussle over toys, two year olds are blissfully unaware that children their own age exist.) We met at a local park today. The moms chased after the kids, conversations starting by the swings and ending in the sandbox.
I was distracted because Buzzy kept stumbling. "I okay!" she'd announce, and trip off to another fall. I finally got her settled with a shovel and tried to remember what we'd been discussing when my friend looked down at Buzzy's sneakers.
"Oh, look at that! Are her shoes on the wrong feet?"
I looked down. Sure enough, Buzzy's purple Stride Rites were reversed.
My friend laughed, "I bet she put those on herself, didn't she."
I laughed. Nope. That proud parenting moment was all mine. Wonder what else I'm missing?
