As our days in Chicago grow shorter we've been trying to soak up as much time with good friends as we can. This morning Charlie had the great pleasure of partaking in a very special tea party just for two. Ms. Megan and her mommy, Mrs. Lindsay, wanted to throw the girls a little best friends send-off; a proper goodbye. Not only did our gracious hostesses pour tea and serve cookies and muffins, but a read-aloud of Lindsay's favorite book, "Fancy Nancy" was included as entertainment.
We were so surprised at how good they both were at the table! They very daintily drank their "tea" (apple juice) from espresso cups (with both hands) and said Please and Thank You. Oh, I'm pretty sure they both snaked some extra cookies, but who cares when your toddler is acting like such a lady.
It was definitely one of those moments I will always cherish. And who can deny the smocked dresses that make Ms. Megan and I both swoon...it will be so hard to leave my clothing kindred spirit (only one of the many reasons I love this girl!)...I know Ms. Megan is a self-described Yankee, but Lawdy, I think she's a Southerner at heart!
