Dear Kids – Cookie Cutter Kids

Dear Kids,

We went to a birthday party last weekend. It was lovely and you two behaved like gems. Considering this was our first interaction with new neighbors I could not have been more grateful that you guys toed the line.

Here’s the thing: there were a solid 9 little girls there and every last one of them was the same height with long, brunette hair. I could not tell them a part to save my life. I couldn’t even point out the birthday girl with any accuracy! Thank God you have blond hair, Kitten, or I may have taken the wrong child home.

It did not help that the birthday girl changed her clothes THREE TIMES. She greeted us at the door in a party dress, then ten minutes later she and four other little girls came down stairs in princess dresses, then fifteen minutes later they were all in shorts and t-shirts. That’s not fair, right?

Kitten, you didn’t even bother learning their names; you just called them all ‘friend’, which was a brilliant move, actually.

We had to leave early and I didn’t know what to do. You have to say goodbye to the birthday girl, right? How would I pick her out of the giggling brunette sea? And then cake was called. Score! Saved by birthday tradition!

I stared down the birthday girl while she blew out the candles and seared her face in to my brain…ok, I just noted what shirt she was wearing. Ten minutes later I located her, pushed Kitten in her direction, and the goodbye was executed.

We left the party with goodie bags and a firm step in the right direction for future neighborhood shenanigans. How could we not be friends with them? Their play set has THREE SLIDES! For real.

 

Unique! ...to say the least ;)
