Well it happened. The seperation of the ages. Alyssa's best friend is Abbe's daughter, Julia who is 5. Alyssa is 8 as we know and Emma of course is fabulous 4. Now, we have known Abbe and the girls for four years. Ever since Emma was 3 months old. The girls all love each other very much and the age difference between Julia and Alyssa was never a problem. But Abbe and I saw it last weekend. The seperation. Alyssa wanted to hang more with Allie, Abbe's 11 year old and her friend, Ashley rather than Julia and Emma. Abbe noticed it first. Alyssa was too "old" to hang. Which suited Emma and Alyssa just fine.They played great together. It makes me kind of sad because Abbe's house and her daughters is sort of a "safe Haven" I know them, I love them and I just know that Alyssa is going to want to hang with friends from her class now. "Others" with parents that I don't know. She will soon start with the " How comes??" The "How come we don't have clean white carpet like...?" "How come ... ..'s mommy wears makeup and does her hair and you don't?" At Abbe's house all I get is how come we don't have this cereal and how come we don't have this toothpaste. It was manageable "how comes" And of course the "how come their house and garage is so clean?" I don't mind those. These anonymous mommies will anger me before I even get to know them. Alyssa is just too old and too cool for her own good. I knew it was a mistake getting her that bra.
