Maggie found out that a few of her friends from school live a block over from us. So we have been taking walks after school. (Me, for the exercise. Her, for the chance encounter.)
And low and behold, today we heard some voices. She immediately picked up the pace to see if it was her friend. But I could see his hair was the wrong color. Then we heard my name from behind us. It was her friend’s mother.
We visited for a few minutes (more like 30 minutes) while the kids played. On our way back to the street, her friend’s mom said she could come back sometime for a playdate.
“We can take another walk tomorrow. See you then!” Maggie said as we were leaving.
That girl knows how to get invited places.
