We just got back from a last minute pre-Oscar party with good friends. It was one of those parties where no one, not kids or adults wants to leave. These are people I cherish because when we are with them we laugh. I mean really laugh like from the bottom of our guts. That to me is the sign of true friends. Our kids feel the same way. They disappear as soon as we get there and play perfectly-no fights, no tears nothing but giggles and the occasional request for a juice box.
