We have neighbors who live behind us. They have a little girl who is 5 months younger than Muffin Man. Backyard Girl is Muffin Man's best friend outside of school. He loooooooves her. Yesterday we spent part of the afternoon with her and her Dad at the neighborhood pool and then she came over and helped us make and eat ice cream. MM showed her all his toys and shared his play-doh accessories like a real gentleman. He even shared his scissors with her. This is a really big deal. Seriously.
At the pool, BYG was SWIMMING in the pool. Face in the water and everything. She would jump in and go over her head and then bob up with her head back so her hair would do that perfect-down-the-back thing. She's three! Her dad told us where they take her for lessons, so we'll be taking MM there next Spring.
