Jack has been in the same school since I returned to work after maternity leave. As a result, he's grown up with a handful of best buddies who have done the same. It makes my heart happy every day to see him greeting Gabe, Linley, Eli, Mac, and Jazmin, among others.
As luck would have it, Gabe recently became a big brother. (Yay to Gabe and his awesome parents!) And as fate would have it, Gabe's little sis decided to come late in the evening on the night before she was to be coaxed out into the world, aka, induced. She knew she was being evicted, that is.
So, Gabe's parents dropped him off at Casa de Jack so they could rush off to the hospital and become a family of four. Jack and Gabe were in for a pleasant surprise the next morning, when they realized they'd just had their first sleepover! We hooked them up with yogurt and sippies of milk and let the fun ensue.
|Gabe! Gabe is here, Momma!|
|WAY too excited to eat breakfast. Seriously, this is so cool!|
After the pure adorableness of breakfast, imagine our delight when we realized that Gabe's momma had carefully packed an outfit for him that included the Very Same Shirt we had just bought for Jack! As we dressed them (divide and conquer, also known as man-to-man defense), I hollered upstairs to Durel to put Jack in the same shirt. Because I think I'm funny like that.
|Thing 1 and Thing 2?|
I am happy to report that Gabe and his *entire* family are doing great. Jack wants Gabe to come over for another sleepover soon. And I think breakfast with a best buddy is one of the best things in the world.
Hope you do, too,
