Redeeming qualities

I've been negative on a few things lately. But those things aren't ALL bad.

My neighborhood does have some redeeming qualities. Not only are there several parks within walking distance that Little Elvis usually gets all to himself, our next door neighbors are pretty cool -- especially in the eyes of a toddler who loves vehicles.

In Little Elvis' world, all cars are cool, but the bigger the car, the better. And one of our next-door neighbors drives a school bus!! How much bigger can you get?

She parks it in front of her house between her morning and afternoon runs. I mentioned Little Elvis' love of all things automotive to her last week, and yesterday she invited him over to play on the bus!

My little guy had a blast running up and down the aisle!

So, not everyone in this neighborhood is awful. Our neighbor's son is also sweet, but at 10 or 11, a little too old to really enjoy playing with Little Elvis.

And, Pampers kindly sent me a replacement code for the outdated ones. Thanks to Laura for the suggestion of writing them!

I've caught up on your previous posts.
I wish you lived near us!!!!!!!!!
Our playgroup kind of came about...over time. It's a cluster of us mommies who all live in the same neighborhood. And really, it's more like we enjoy each other & getting out & about than about forcing situations for our kids to play together. Lots of times we'll take our kids to the play area at the mall b/c it's free! Or walk together to the park & play---again, FREE! We don't have our kids overbooked in 8 different classes. We all have 2 days off together: Tuesdays & Wednesdays. We usually get together once each week. It's kind of up in the air about what we're going to do...but we try to squeeze lunch in there if we can! It's just...fun.
You'd totally fit in b/c sometimes one or more of us just doesn't feel like going---or we need to get XYZ done. It's just...a non-witchy group.

I am glad it is not all that bad. But, I still say some of those moms you are dealing with sound less than lovely to me. Sigh.

The bus sounds awesome!
