Playdate Reunion

We got together with some old friends today who we hadn't seen in a long time. They played around each other and with each other and I was both surprised and appalled at how gender specific each child's behavior was. After all that work trying to stay equal...

Eventually the three-year-old boys retreated to the living room to play the Fighting Game and essentially beat each other up until they were sweaty and their moms made them take a potty break. The girls chose the smaller toys, or the ones with a system or routine like the house with mail delivery or the kitchen with the microwave that opens and shuts. Geez.

Here is Baby Kate, who is obviously no longer a baby:



And Henry can't quite figure her out:



Kole and Svea:



And Arwyn:



Svea and Kate giggling in the kitchen:



And, finally, the Fighting Game, with Svea watching from the Dora chair:





(I didn't get any good ones of Drew, Aubrey or Elissa...so we'll have to get together again soon. Sorry Kelle and Jaime!)
