It’s Friday! It’s Friday!

But, you know…no one HERE is excited about it or anything! I have had a very limited work schedule these past weeks because of all the other stuff going on. I have to say, I am not a fan of working full weeks! I get why I have to and I’m fortunate to be able to…but who wouldn’t rather play?

All my adult life I’ve had people tell me that work ceases to feel like work when you are passionate about it but I’ve never found anything that I feel passionate about…not really. Now I’ve found something, it just doesn’t pay or provide health benefits. So, that rather sucks 🙂 Moving on.

This weekend Monkey finally gets the playdate he’s been requesting with a school friend. Now we just need to figure out how to make that happen…Monkey hates having people in his space and he hates people touching his toys. On the one hand, he’ll never learn if we don’t give him the opportunity to do so but, on the other, this is the first time he has ever asked for a playdate and I’d really, really like for it to go smoothly…it doesn’t seem like the best time for a “lesson” to me.

Thoughts?

    good luck with the playdate! my only advice is hide away the most important (hardest to share toy) thing and then hope for the best. all kids have a hard time with this!

    So exciting…and I’m sure nerve racking! What about a social story to give him an idea of how to have a successful playdate? We have done lots of role playing with Zakira to help prep her for some things, and maybe brainstorm ahead of time a few things he’d really like to share or do.

    I have to confess that wednesday when Jacob began having cold symptoms I was sad for him but secretly happy that he and I would have an excuse to stay home at least one day. Thankfully he is not that bad, too bad for school but good enough for playing and cuddling and big smiles just hanging at home with momma. Maybe he sensed we both needed the downtime.

    I’m on kind of a “go for it!” kick right now after our success at the Children’s Museum…. so I say of course “go for it!”
