Reining in the Socialite
Apparently, Jada's world was abuzz all last week with talk of a play date this past weekend. She kept trying to explain what was going on but I kept getting her friends' names confused. Apparently, she had written notes for several of her friends, and their poor mothers reached out to us to see what was going on. We ended up making play date arrangements with one friend, inviting another but not being able to connect, and not being able to coordinate with yet another.
Speaking of written notes, Jada also showed me an elaborate set of sheets for her birthday party. Her birthday, of course, isn't for another two and a half months. No matter: individual invitations had been customized, signs were ready for the various stations within her party, and there was even a sign-in sheet for each parent.
By the way, she is all of six years old. I'm not sure I'll know what to do when we get to the teenage version of Jada.
