What goes around, comes around.

Twice a week Aspen and I get to play with her friends Makayla and Konner. Actually, for the last year we've had almost weekly playdates with them since Zjani and I tend each other's kids. We're awesome like that.

I really like this set up for a number of reasons, one being that I love being able to leave Aspen with someone she's super-comfortable with, and another being that I believe it's really good for her to grow up sharing her mom, space, toys, snacks etc with other kids on a regular basis. It sucks that the kids sometimes pass around colds, but y'know what? It's worth it for the social growth Aspen experiences.

Some days we're lazy and we stay inside watching cartoons and playing with toys. Other days we go outside and ride bikes, eat pears off the ground (KONNER!) and swing.

I remember being tended by a good friend of my mom's (or maybe they became friends because of it) when I was young. Heck, my first crush was my babysitter's redheaded son. If that's not a good reason to let someone else watch your kids from time to time, I don't know what is. Maybe Aspen will follow in my footsteps and fall in puppy love with a messy redhead too.

Yeah, speaking of redheads, I swear I really watch Konner. He just moves too fast to be in a picture to prove it.
