Today was a good day. Jaden seemed to do well at school again. Miss Moll even commented on how polite Jaden is - he always says please and thank you.

After the kids' nap, we went across the street and hung out with our neighbors for awhile. We met them when we had our garage sale and found out that they have a son just a little bit younger than Jaden. They are a Middle Eastern family - obviously relatively strict Muslim since the women all wear scarves on their heads (not sure what the official name for that is). They are very nice and seemed to be very happy to get to know us. Their youngest daughter, Fatima, seemed extremely taken with Danielle. The little boy, Yusef, wasn't too keen on having to share things with Jaden, but that's just the way it is with 2 year olds. I think it would be great if they could play together sometimes. Plus, the middle daughter might be able to babysit for us sometimes. It would be great to have another option for a babysitter - especially someone who is so close by. I'm not sure exactly how old she is, but I think she is probably 13 or 14. So, it turned out to be a nice afternoon. Of course, then Jaden peed in his pants and I had to rush him home and give him and Danielle a bath. But, it wasn't all that bad - it didn't take away too much from getting to know our neighbors.
