Started off inauspiciously - a trip to Target with Rose #3 being removed bodily because she was misbehaving. Removed bodily by her father, that is - not security guards or anything like that! But we had a lovely lunch with Guppy and Poppy, and then Rose #2 discovered the telephone. She was invited to a classmate's birthday party and made a playdate, all on one day. Not to be outdone, Rose #1 also made a playdate. Turns out that both friends were just lurking around, driving their mothers crazy, and the mothers could not have been happier to accept a playdate invitation.
So we had a house full of kids this afternoon, and Rose #3 woke up from her nap with a MASSIVE bloody nose. Blood everywhere. After we staunched the bleeding and put her in the bathtub, the moms were here to pick up their kids. We snacked on cranberry scones and then Rose #2 worked her puzzle, Rose #1 played legos, and Rose #3 hung out with her daddy. Now I just finished folding laundry and we will all get ready for bed.
