It's always interesting meeting new neighbors that have children. Your kids immediately introduce themselves and become best friends within a matter a minutes. Which if you think about it, parents and adults should follow these simple rules about meeting new people. Kids have no preconception of who they are about to meet, what they look like, how they dress, and what type of career or job they have. Kids simply say "hi my name is" and the rest is shall we say history. "KISS- Keep It Simple Stupid" would be the acronym I would use to describe how to meet new people. The world would be so much better off if we used it more.
As it turns out, our neighbors seem to be very sweet and have children almost the same age as ours. We have let our daughter go roller skating with them at the local skating rink, and they seem to get along very well. It seems to spark the whole neighborhood when new kids are thrown into the mix with the kids that have been around a while.
I was almost thinking when they moved in, are they going to be neighbors from the movie The Burbs. A family that has no common thread of ordinary at all. Thank goodness everything turned out alright and they are very nice. It is shocking that the kids are so well mannered. You can tell a lot about the parents if the kids act kind and are brought up right. It seems that when you have a strong presence of both parents, that the children are very stable and well mannered.
Well enough of my writing for now.
Just remember to meet new neighbors and people with open arms and open hearts, you never know they might turn out to be your best friends.
