last friday we had three of parker's friends over for a valentine's day playdate. a few weeks back, rachael had suggested a tea party and, well, i just ran with it. remember what i said about february? and how the only redeeming things are valentine's day and samoas? add toddler tea parties to the list.
i got some acrylic paints in various shades of valentine's day, canvases, and set them to work on a painting. there's not much cuter than four toddlers at work on their paintings around your kitchen table. then they made their own parfaits which, for parker anyway, is about the best thing ever. doling out his own ingredients and carefully spooning them into a cup to then eat his fill? especially when berries are a part of the deal? heaven.
meanwhile, the mothers drank coffee and mimosas, ate quiche, and donuts (by union square no less!). i think all playdates need those things from here on out.
