So Petie hosted a birthday party for me and Laura this weekend at our house. After seeing the tables set up, Joelle quick sprang into action. “I’ll show everyone their seats!” I was assigned the first table “the one for the birthday boy” and Danny and Meg were assigned to the next table with her. When there were already people sitting at “my table” she started dragging chairs away from other tables to make sure I would sit there.

At one point she saw Tara sitting with Ava in her lap in a white plastic chair. She seized another similar chair and started dragging it over (the chair being bigger than her) gasping “two can…fit…in….this one”.

When Danny and Meg first arrived she also filled their plates with appetizers – 10 pieces of cheese and 10 pieces of salami anyone?
