Her particular favorite and most frequen playmates are Claire (they're in school together and she lives down the street, and her Mom is amazeballs and has Maggie over a lot) and Navi. We don't get to see Navi that often because we're on opposite preschool schedules and our schedules in general just don't seem to match up well enough.
Of course, she'd prefer to go to Navis, and I don't blame her. Navi has a super cool backyard and a ton of toys to play with. PLUS....it's alwyas WAY better to play at someone elses house. But, I digress.
The other day the planets alligned and miss Navi was available to come and play. It was a joyous day for both Max and Maggie that Navi was here and oh the good times they had.
First they jumped on the trampoline, then they played aliens and bad guys and shot them in the backyard. They dragged kitchen chairs out to the playhouse and climbed all over the roof and did who knows what else. Then they came inside and played "Mom and Dad" (a particular favorite of my chillins) until apparently Navi was bored of that. Next thing I know Maggie and Navi are wandering through the family room "gathering" things. I asked what they were doing and Maggie informed me they were looking for items for beauty salon.
Beauty Salon? Now THIS was something new. And especially interesting, as Maggie doesn't allow me to ever comb her hair or you know, touch it.
Awhile later, it was very quiet, so I decided to go back and check. Imagine my surprise to find Navi combing through Maggies hair. I went back to get my camera and by the time I returned, I found this.
Please look closely and note that Maggie is apparently "brushing" Navis hair with her play kitchen knife. Hahahahaha
This went on for QUITE some time, until finally they emerged from their
"sal-ON" and Maggie proudly introduced Navi and her amazing handiwork.
Pretty spectacular, no? I particularly love the comb stuck in the back of her hair. hahahahahaha
Not gonna lie, it was the BEST afternoon of playing EVER! Those girls had the best time for almost 4 hours. I had quiet, undisturbed lessons because Maggie and Max were so happily occupado with their BFF. Pretty sure Navi only went home because her Dad finally texted and was like, "Uhhhhh, should we come get Navi?" hahaha Ummm NO, she's too great for my kids.
Anyway....love some good playtime with friends.
Playdates and updos,
