Hayden has a best friend at Primrose now, which is really fun for us because it has taken him a long time to really gel with anyone there. He’s pretty particular about who he deems a friend. He started talking about this friend in May, and we got an invitation to his birthday party a few weeks ago. I RSVP’ed to his mom and said Hayden has been talking a lot about his new friend, and I was smiling as I read her response to how much they hear about his “best friend Hayden”. Unfortunately, this friend cut down his time at Primrose to two days over the summer, so he doesn’t get to see him all that often at the moment. But last week he started talking about a new friend at school, so it sounds like he’s got someone he likes to hang out with when he doesn’t have his bestie around. And it all comes down to birthday parties. He’ll tell me he has someone he wants to invite to his birthday party (which will be in August – not really too near but from what his teachers say all the kids are always talking about who can come to their birthday parties, no matter how distant in the future it is).
