Buddies,  The Hood

A Guest Post from Clownfish

Hangin’ with my friends…
The emails were exchanged. Me: “May I come down and see you three tonight”?, SAJ: “Will you stay for dinner”? Me: “What can I bring”?, SAJ: “Bring yourself and come on down”. With that, it was set, I was off to see my friends and see how much Baby Bug has grown.
I cruised on down the freeway, walked up their stairs and the slider opened. Not only was it great to see my friend but in her arms was the star of the show, Baby Bug! She was beaming a big ol’ smile right at me. Most likely not due to my arrival but possibly gas. 
The three of us walked to the big green emblum for secret agent go-go juice and then walked down to the beach. Two friends and one very cute baby, walking, talking, and catching up. It was fun seeing my friend (our friend) and mother, totally happy. We paused for a moment to flip the Bug around in her carrier. SAJ looked at BB and said, “I love being a mom”! Of course there is no question of that but sometimes a mother just has to say it out loud.

I got to catch up with Toby too! After a wonderful dinner and BB being put to bed, the three of us talked into the evening.
With a jar of rasberry jam in hand, we exchanged good-byes. It was a perfect evening!

    Thank you for dinner; Mexican is my favorite! It was great seeing you all and seeing how BB is growing up. When you weren’t looking she asked for the keys to my truck. Don’t worry, I told her she was still a bit too young to be cruising PCH.

    Please tell me where in the world you found an exercauser without the 5 million gadgets attached?!?!?! Its so much more pleasant to see the cute baby face without having to peep around stuff, and for the baby to see the world without everywhere she looks having a bright thing in her face! I want that for my baby. I have a feeling you’re going to tell me that it was a hand-me-down that doesn’t exist anymore, much like the hand-me-down swing I have that runs not on batteries but *gasp* CRANKS! aaaah, progress.

    Good times. Nice to see a bunch of family pics. I love the mother/daughter pics.

    shay I had that same exercauser for ODD, a friend who had her babies in the 90’s gave it to me :P There are a coule of really basic walkers that you can put the “brakes” on for babe to sit in without a million and one gadgets surrounding them. ODD loved hers while I cooked dinner. The modern exercausers scared her because she had/has sensory issues. Too much stuff.
