We had a lovely time celebrating Easter with friends yesterday. Hugo mingled and played pretty nicely with the two other kids there (girls aged 3 and almost 4). It was a treat to listen to them talking since he hasn’t been able to converse for very long.
The highlight of the evening for me:
The girls put two dolls in a play stroller, attracting Go’s attention. He comes over and tries to take the stroller.
Go: “No! Mine! I want it.”
Four-year-old girl: Explains the concept of taking turns very graciously and tells Go he can have a turn in a few minutes.
Go: Throws himself on the carpet, rolls around crying in anger.
Four: Drawling with a slight Southern accent, “Look at him! Carrying on like he’s Jesus on the cross.”
Go: Sits up, gives a dirty look, “Yes. I am cross.”
Their timing was amazing. Sorry I don’t have a photo of them playing together. I hope you had a happy Easter!
