Childhood Friends

We are supremely blessed to live in a neighborhood chocked full of girls.

All Girls

There are 3 of us on our cul-de-sac who each have two girls, a 4th neighbor with a 2 year old girl and a 5th neighbor who just brought home a brand new baby girl on Friday.


Since it's begun to warm up, you can usually find most of us in someone's yard chatting it up while all the girls run around chasing one another, screaming at the top of their lungs.


All of the girls get along quite well too. I mean, there will always be occasional argument about who will get to wear the Ariel dress this time or who will be the groom whenever playing wedding, but for the most part, they are all good friends and enjoy one another's company.


This has worked out to my benefit in a huge way. We have found that swapping out babysitting works quiet nicely and we take turns watching each other's kids to give the other a night out with the hubby or just a break in general.


The other night, I had Becca's girls, Merrin and Eden. And then, Michelle brought over her two girls for dinner and so there were 6 little girls all together, with only 4 years between the youngest and the oldest.


And we had ice cream for dessert.
