This morning we packed my trusty red Roots bag full of "just incase" stuff and headed over to Nathan's classmate's home for another play date.
We arrived and Nathan went straight to the play room. Isn't that just like him? Once he sees someone's playroom full of "new" toys, he settles right in and gets to work... playing*. The two boys played until the third boy arrived. Then, it was hunting season, Easter eggs beware.
The boys tore around the room looking for chocolate Easter eggs. Each boy got their fair share**.
After more playing, they had some morning tea. I'm used to calling it "snack" but here, they call it morning tea. Nathan's gotten a hang of it. I'm still learning. We had some fresh fruit and some yummy mini cupcakes. Yum!
Soon after, it was time to go home. Caleb was getting a little agitated, which was understandable since he had developed a fever from his shots yesterday.
Nathan was good enough to wait until after lunch to take a big bite out of his Easter bunny. After chomping his ears off, we had to put him back in the fridge so he wouldn't become chocolate soup before Nathan could eat the rest. We'll save his face for another day.
*I have no problem with him getting busy playing with a friend's toys as long as he greets his friend first, plays nicely and helps clean up afterward. I think playing is so important for kids to develop their imagination and creativity, and so often it gets lost in the shuffle of life these days.
**Each boy got their fair share until one boy started playing with his chocolates, putting them back into the trucks in the play room. Unfortunately for him, Nathan saw this as an opportunity to gather more eggs.
There was nothing hostile or greedy about it. It was an Easter egg hunt. Your main objective is to locate and store Easter eggs, and that's what he did. Later on, the boy's mom asked where all his eggs went. That's when he said Nathan took them all. In my mind, I was like, "What? That's not even something Nathan would do!" and then I realized what most likely happened. So I quickly explained to the other mom and gave her handfuls of chocolate back.
