We went to the Brew Ha Ha down at Saywer Point on Saturday, after spending all day at Coney Island. If I had to do it over again, we would have skipped Coney - too hot, too crowded, too much for our little ones. The Brew Ha Ha was not the most appropriate event for kids, but luckily, these girls were clueless to the comedians' scandalous stories. We won't be taking Sylvia next year, but this year, she had a BALL! She and Cecilia accidentally wore matching shirts and they made a new friend, Elias. Here they are running around - just a slice of the fun they had in that giant grassy field. I was trying to catch the head-butt between Sylvia and Elias; apparently that's how kids say, "I think you're cool."
I could write a book about how it feels to watch my little girl run around with my best friend's little girl. My heart nearly exploded as I saw them do things that I know she and I both do. Sylvia had her eye on Cecilia the entire evening and constantly shouted, "C'mon, Cici!" urging her to play soccer or run behind the bushes. And Cecilia? She actually CLEANED UP after Sylvia. I'm not even kidding. If you know Ann at all, this won't surprise you, but WOW. It was clear that they are miniature versions of their mamas, and I am so excited for Sylvia to know Cecilia. If those girls get each other into (and out of) as much trouble as their mothers did, they will be lucky, indeed!
