My kids had a play date today. It was so much fun for all 3 of us. They are filthy dirty. I love it.
At our current home, there isn’t much of a backyard. What we have is a big porch and then about 15 feet of grass. Beyond that is golf course property. We live next to a tee box. There are many strangers behind our house on a daily basis — all day long. I am a paranoid mom and so I won’t let my kids off the porch for fear they’d run onto the course and get smacked with a high speed golf ball or that some weirdo golfer with sick tendencies would sneak up to my house and kidnap one or both of my children. I am paranoid! Plus there are pools in people’s backyards all around us and so I am afraid they would find a weak spot in the screen on the lanai and drown in someone’s unprotected pool.
So I was overjoyed today that we were invited to a play date at my wonderful friend’s home where the backyard is big and fenced in. They got so dirty and they are asleep in their beds with black feet. It’s awesome! It makes me all the more anxious to move into our new home. Then my kids will be dirty every day. It will be wonderful!
