Slice Of Life: Mrs. Overman
Our son Ian (left) spends his days playing with his best friend, Emma (right), who is the daughter of our school's music teacher.
Those two are inseparable. I have yet to see him love any other of his friends or cousins like he loves Emma.
Every day when I pick him up after school, I ask, "So what did you and Emma play today?"
"Superheroes, Mom," he says. "I was green and Emma was red."
I always say, "Did you have fun?"
To which he always replies, "Yes!"
Since I have to work (even though I LOVE my job), I'm glad he gets to stay at Emma's house where he's so happy. That's one thing he doesn't have at our house: a best buddy just his age.
