Mary is our friend. Mary is three.
On Thursday, Mary held her had-to-be-twice-postponed tea party. Ada was her guest.
Ada is two, or as she puts it "Almost three -- in March!"
Miriam (9) was her chaperone and fellow party-goer. Her main job was to make sure Ada could find the bathroom in someone else's house. And also to make sure that a certain little Teapot, short and stout, did not get all steamed up and begin to shout.
They made tea and pizza and little crowns. She did not make a scene.
Which, really, is the Only Rule as far as Tea Parties for Three-Year Olds (and those who are almost): No Fits.
