Now You’re in the Baby Book

Piper is having a playdate today with her best schoolmate Alexandra (Alex around these parts). It’s a huge success.  I define “success” because I’m in my office writing while she and Alex are playing in the room next door. Sure I’m supervising, but it’s not my playdate. Geez. It’s taken almost five years to get to this solo moment, and you better believe I’m savoring it…by blogging twenty feet away about Piper. Don’t ever say I don’t know how to party, right?

Here’s a snippet of what I’m missing (or not missing as the case may be):

Piper: “Say eyeball!”

Alex: “Eyeball! Now you say Goo Goo Ga Ga!”

Piper: “Goo Goo Ga Ga!”

(Screams and giggles)

Alex: “I made you sound like a baby!”

(Screams and giggles)

Piper: “Hey, look at this!”

Alex: “OK!”

Piper: “Made you look! Made you look! Now you’re in the baby book!”

(More screams and giggles)

Piper: “Let’s smack ourselves in the head!”

Alex: “Your mom said we weren’t supposed to do that anymore.”

Piper: “Oh, right. Let’s pat ourselves on the head. Gently.”

Alex: “OK!”

(More screams and giggles)
