Our friend Mady has been staying with us since Thursday morning. She's seven and has an older brother. She's learning what it is like to have a toddler sister. And, Molly is learning what it would be like to have a sibling.
Sibling rivalry erupted quickly! However, I am amazed at how many activities they can participate in together, even with the large difference in age. We've been busy cooking, visiting the Farmer's Market, running errands, going to the McDonald's playland and two different parks, doing the kid's activity at Lowe's and then painting our projects at home, playing with a neighbor girl, reading books, visiting with my mom and her two friends from Michigan, playing Uno, soaking in the kiddy pool, singing, and watching videos while I clean, do laundry, empty the dishwasher and clean up potty-training accidents (Molly has been pretty distracted by Mady and has had some big accidents).
Tomorrow morning is the zoo, and then I'll be recovering.
