Okay........ yeah ........ I caved. We went to Starbucks so I could get on the internet, but it was totally worth it!(In an earlier post, I totally trashed Starbucks because they don't have free Wi Fi.) The getting on the internet part was a pain in my arse, but the coffee and snacks were good, and lo and behold - Rachel made a new friend. This little girl showed up with her brother and his six friends - they were doing Pokemon cards or something like that, and she apparently didn't quite know what to do with herself. She and Rachel kept checking each other out, but not engaging in any play until finally, Rachel got under our table and was sulking about something and the other little girl got down on the floor right beside the table and it was on! They got on like a house on fire, having to be scolded for racing around Starbucks and screeching to a sudden halt when they reached the end of the room and giggling loudly the way little girls having fun do. The above picture is proof that I talked them into sitting in the chair and coloring for a while. Cute.
Oh, and by the way..........I am pleased to announce that Starbucks somewhat redeemed themselves by giving us a free venti Rasberry Chocolate Frappucino. Ha Cha Cha!
