Play dates

I'm excited! A classmate invited Rylie over her house to play after school today! This is the second friend who called for a play date with Rylie. It's funny because I had to ask the mom(and the last mom) if she knew Rylie has Down syndrome.(Yes, she knew) Ha Ha, but what if I showed up w/ Rylie and the mom was like HUH??? I'm thankful these parents encourage their kids to invite Rylie over. In fact it's awesome. If I never had Rylie , would I have invited a child with special needs to come over to play with Karlie? Probably not. Just being honest. Ok, I'll let you know how it goes. Rylie is so excited!!!!

Edited to add: The playdate went well! Soon as we got there they ran off to play. Rylie was so excited and of course when it was time to go she gave me a hard time. I had to bribe her w/ Dunkin Donuts coffee to get her to leave without a fight. She was invited back... so that's good:)

So glad that she was invited over for a playdate! I know that's what we all want for our kids - acceptance and friendship!
