I know I’m one of those obnoxious Moms that posts every totes adorbs thing their offspring says or does. I don’t care. I waited my whole life for these little monkeys and I intend to brag. They are turning out pretty good.
Today we went to Pizza Hut for lunch. As always, Lala and Loopsy started a discussion with the people in the booth behind ours. This time, our fellow diners were incredibly inviting of the intrusion to their meal. They were two sisters, born on the same day a year apart- Whitney and Liz. And Whitney carried on a conversation with my babes for several minutes. She was lovely.
I’m a terribly shy and buttoned up person. I don’t make friends easily or start conversations with strangers. I kept stopping myself from telling the girls to turn around, to leave these people alone. I kept feeling odd, and unsure, and uncomfortable. But… my daughters did not.
Today, on Thankful Thursday, I am grateful that my little ones didn’t inherit that gene.
They were so sweet and asked good questions and were polite and endearing. When Whitney and Liz left, they asked if they’d come back to Pizza Hut another day because they want to be friends. !!!!
My kids are making plans, making friends, with EASE!
I couldn’t be prouder or more grateful. I need to take some notes.
