LP is already learning some of the hard things about growing up. We have seen much less of our friends this year since they started school and everyone goes on different days. Our bi-weekly playdates phased out and we have only managed to see Munchkinetta and Barefoot Princess once since Christmas, and we haven't seen Buby since before Christmas.
It is so hard to explain to a 3 year old why they can't just see their friends whenever they want anymore. LP has been playing with pretend BP lately, and was having a sleepover with pretend BP last night when she suddenly announced that she didn't want pretend BP anymore, she wants her real BP. My heart broke this morning when LP told me that her friends don't love her anymore. When I asked her why she would think that, she told me that they never play with her anymore.
