I wonder... does anyone invite two year olds over to play?

It's so hard being two sometimes. On most days my sisters and brothers come home from school and they take time to play with me. But not today. I watched as each one whisked in and hurried off. My six year old brother who is usually good for some play time left for a birthday party with a boy who is in his class. My oldest sister is usually ready to take me in her arms when she comes through the door and let me tag along with her as she puts her things away or fixes a snack. But she had to change clothes quickly and head right back out the door for a choir concert. My twelve year old sister comes home every day and takes me for a walk. She packs the two of us a light snack, fills our water bottles and we head out the door for the sidewalks of our neighborhood. But she was invited to a friend's house from church and needed to get her homework done and chores finished before she could go. And finally my big brother is always there for me, but not tonight. Dad had his bike fixed and picked it up today, so he was off to ride into the wind immediately after school. So here I am with no one to play with but these two big people who I have been hanging out with all day. It's a quiet Friday evening and I think Mom wants to finish a book and Dad would like to put his feet up and rest after having me tag along with him today while we worked in the yard. I wonder... does anyone invite two year olds to come over and play?

Hi, I've visited your blog off and on, and have enjoyed reading it.
I just had to comment on this one. What an adorable little guy he is! I have little ones at home, and sometimes their expressions can say a thousand words!

There are distinct advantages to being the baby and then there are those disadvantages. Poor little guy. It's hard to be left out. If we lived nearby I'd be glad to play for a little while (we grandma's tire easily, but we love to play)
