All the kids had a good time, and it was very sweet to watch them all interact. Adam is big on hugging everyone as they showed up, and while we were out in the yard, kids were reaching for each other's hands, holding hands with Joanna our tour guide, or holding hands with moms who didn't belong to them. I feel like you hear a lot in the media about "mommy wars" and women being nasty to each other for their parenting choices, but I feel very fortunate about all of the other women and families we have in our lives - people who read to my kids, who squeeze them up in big hugs and hold their hands, who cheer and give high fives for Adam's Super Mario underpants and who help take care of the herd of little monsters we've all created.
Our other big fun this week was celebrating Gigi's 60th birthday with her, and bonus Auntie Lisa.
