Monkey wanted time with Friend Thalia, and Thalia’s mom, one of the kindest humans on the planet, asked if Yessa wanted to come along to play with Thalia’s little sister. Yessa thought about it, and said she’d like to give it a try. Well, first she said, “Will Zoe be there to take care of me?”
She’s gone to play at Aunt A’s with Cousin M all by herself, but she’s only done that once. It went well, and she had great fun, but she’s been to their house countless times.
When we got to Louisa’s, Yessa wanted me to go in with her to sit for a little bit. CoCo was wonderful about engaging Noa right away, as well as Louisa bringing over Mr. Mew to entice Noa. The Buster was still in the van, so I finally told her she could stay or go with me, but she’d have to decide.
She stayed, and she had a great time. The girls played for three hours, then we picked up Cousin M from school, and had 4 more hours of playing and games and laughter.
Yessa’s growing up. Before we know it, she’ll be willing to stay in her Sunday School class without Buds or me. But I’m in no hurry. In a flash of the years, she’ll be waving as she drives away…
