A few weeks ago we had my dear friend Carli and her husband and daughter over. Carli and I have been friends for twenty six years now...wow, that makes me feel so old. As little girls we talked about how one day we'd have daughters and they'd grow up to be great friends. They would play together, call each other on the phone and write letters to each other. (Hey, we didn't have any idea about e-mail and text messaging back in the 80's!) It was definitely super exciting when Carli announced she was due just three months after me. I knew immediately she'd have a daughter too and she did!
Last time Gracie came over the girls fought-a lot. They fought over toys, and what was most upsetting to Sydney was Gracie wanted to name White Puppy "Coco." So they went back and forth about White Puppy's real name...which is White Puppy according to Sydney. It wasn't the best visit so I have to admit I was a bit nervous about this trip.
Well the girls got along perfectly. They were old chums within two minutes and disappeared into Sydney's room pretty quickly. They came out wearing Sydney's dress up costumes and just had a blast together. Phew. And Sydney later told me that White Puppy's new real name is White Puppy Coco. Haha, there's my problem solver for you.
Here are the girls:
