I decided this ought to be a 'LADIES" luncheon-so the Mama's and their daughters came. All in all, there was about a dozen of us. All of the daughters (with the exception of my own) are in the pre-teen, teen years so I wanted to encourage them to feel grown up and have them see how exciting it is to be Mothers. Honestly, they already have a pretty good idea. I have never seen such sweeter teenagers. It gives me hope that all teenagers don't HAVE to wreck havoc on parental/child relationships. But THAT, my friends, is a soapbox I will NOT get on today! :-)
ANYWAY~since it was an 'all girl' party, I thought I ought to let Corynn feel grown-up too. My, my, my. How she GUSHED at being included in the festivities! She was tremendously helpful in the preparations (and she even cleaned the Doll's house so THEY could receive company too!) and she exclaimed over and over about how she got to 'stay up from rest time'. She made a card for Greta and wrapped her own present. On the outside was a baby getting its picture taken in the grass, on the inside she wrote "CONGRATS. Love Corynn." (She really enjoys writing words now but she still needs help sounding them out.) Great, being the experienced, excellent mother she is new how to properly gush to make little girls' heads blow up with pride.
