The Other Side of RAD
While at Paula’s I had the chance to experience RAD from the non-parent side and I really liked it. This little guy, one of Paula’s new ones, is adorable! He of course, loved me immediately. The next morning he ran into the living room when he got up, saw me, rushed over, gave me a big hug and said, “You’re still back! You didn’t left!” Yes, I was charmed.
Then Tony, at the skating party, who wouldn’t let me, his mother, touch him all weekend, allowed THIS to happen with our friend Meg at the skating party.
It is very fun to be around RAD kids when you aren’t their parent. Meg and her husband just LOVE having Tony around and I Paula’s little guy “had me at hello.”
