Charlie and Malachi are very good friends. It probably has a lot to do with the fact they are old souls. If Charlie is 5 going on 30, then Malachi is 5 going on 40. He is a very sweet kid and gives Charlie a run for his money when it comes to negotiations.
The playdate started out well enough. But the best laid plans of taking them to a movie got changed when I found out that I would be the one taking AJ to his soccer tournament. That normally wouldn't be a big deal. However, it was about an hour away and so poor Charlie and Malachi ended up spending 2 hours of the playdate in a car. And did I mention Charlie gets carsick? He does. He did. Twice.
