Kate amazes me. She does things that I wish I had the guts to do at her age. And, of course, there is a funny story to go along with it.
Kate: "Mom I want to invite_______to my party tonight, because she's never been invited to a party before."
Bonnie (feeling bad): "Why is that Kate?"
Kate: "Well she's sort of crazy (totally saying this matter of factly mind you) and gets in everyone's faces, but she's my friend and I'm inviting her.
I am not sure whether to be proud or mortifyed by her comments. She wasn't exaggerating in her mind.
Bonnie: "Kate how do you know she's neve been invited to a party?"
Kate: "Because I asked her how many parties she's been invited to and she said zero."
Bonnie (feeling bad again): "What did you say?"
Kate (with a proud smile spreading on her face): "Well you're invited to mine!"
God I love this kid. And that is the story of why every year, Kate and her mom invite wayyyyy more people than we should to her parties. Two bleeding hearts in a pod.
