After A. got home from school, we had a lovely playdate. T. hung out with the babysitter, so it was A., I. and O. all flocking around the B. household, while the rest of us drank wine, admired the new oven and enjoyed homemade pizza. Tons of fun! We're gonna try it again next week and abandon A. to the B. family and see if it sticks; that will be A.'s first sleepover at someone else's house (I somehow suspect I'll be picking her up at 10 p.m. and driving her home -- or possibly sleeping over myself in the guest room, which would be no tragedy at all).
