Update & buying friends…

So here goes, today was the orthopedic appointment I talked about 2 weeks ago.  No surgery this summer, is what the doctor said.  But he may need it further down the line probably 2 more times.  I checked to make sure he wasn’t near retirement yet…he assured me he had at least another 15 or so years…OH GOOD, we’ll have aged out by then at our children’s hospital.  It also helps that this doctor makes me swoon.  (sorry, but it’s true).  He probably thinks, what is wrong with her, cause I always break into a sweat at his visits.   I really belive that his wife polishes his wedding ring every morning before he goes to work.  I wouldn’t dare do anything, but he is nice to look at!

Ok, so are you on board with me?  It’s summer, life is crazy!  I just don’t think I have enough to do…so now I’m buying a friend for my son.  Does that seem wrong?  My son isn’t able to play the typical way.  He loves to be sung to, bounced around and tickled…so what kind of friend would that be?  I’m going to the pound tomorrow to look at a dog that i’ve seen online.  I’m hoping it’ll work out.  It’s a small dog.   I was hoping for a puppy and that they’d grow into each other BUT they have a younger dog that is they type i’ve been looking for… a cocker spaniel.  Sad eyes and all.  The picture is just calling at me…I even counted out our coins that we toss into cans to see if we have enough…WE DO!  I’m excited but nervous just the same.  So no doubt if all goes well tomorrow…i’ll be writing about how the two of them are getting along.  How we’re all adjusting to the new being in the house.  Trying to come up with names so far…something simple so our son will be able to eventually say it 🙂

So do you have to buy your kids friends?  How easy is it for them to fit in to playing with their same aged peers (not just siblings)?  Do they tend to get along with adults better than children?
