Everyone Needs a Couple

Of these friends:

That you can pick up the phone and start out a conversation like this:

My 5 year old would like to play with your child...

right now...

at your house.

Or this:
Could you try to pull up this website up real quick?

Or this:
We have a puker...

Heading over for already frozen pedia-pops.

And of course this:
I'm on my way.

Us moms also need at least a couple of friends who don't blink an eye at these situations:

As we arrive home from a morning at the movies.

We all want to play at your house.

Fine with me, your mommy has seen my house worse.
Don't trip on anything on your way through the garage.

After an entire afternoon of playing together.

Can we have a sleepover?

I can't think of a reason to say no.

The kid's are already in bathing suits and find out the pool is closed.

Everyone out back for a water balloon fight.

And of course that say these words without thinking twice:

She ate with us.

Nice pjs.

You should see my house.

Would you like a diet coke? Or do you need some WINE?

If you are lucky (like me) these friends live in your neighborhood, within walking distance, so you can just send the small children over on their own every once in awhile.


Really, this just makes me CRY! I miss being the one who is walking distance from you, who is inviting my kids over to your house! wahhhh!

This sort of made me cry.

I have awesome friends... but they all live very far away... and I miss them.

You are so, so right. I'm not usually one for this type of thing, but I have a picture that says "Friends are the Flowers of Life."

ummm, I need some friends like that! Duh, diet coke or wine??? It's noon somewhere, right?

Or a friend who doesn't hesitate to take care of the dogs and cats!

GR- You are SO right. I was completely focused on my 2 legged kids yesterday. But I should have added something about my wonderful friends who watch my animals when I'm out of town!

I am totally jealous. I used to live in a neighborhood like that...We have 2 1/2 acres of land. My neighbors can only see me if I am down by the fence!!!
My close friend lives 8 houses down, but it is too far to let the kids walk by themselves!!!
