Mother's Day

Here's some of what's been happening:

  • We have our sand and water table set up!  We've taken to heart the internet advice I've read and it's only a sand table right now.  C, D and T have all been enjoying it.
  • The current backyard amenities are:  sand and water table, wagon, slide, toddler seesaw and hammock.  
  • Less than three weeks of school left!
  • To prepare for Mother's Day, I got a 1/8 German chocolate sheetcake from the store and a tube of crescent roll dough.  My husband and a kid picked out a helium balloon for me. 
  • This morning, we woke up to fresh crescent rolls, half of them filled with chocolate almond paste and drizzled with chocolate.  C did it all herself, down to melting the chocolate in the microwave for the chocolate drizzle.
  • The kids presented me with a basket filled with cards (D's thanked me for giving birth to Baby T and weekly bagel runs), homemade molded chocolates, a store-bought hollow chicken chocolate for me, and a gold necklace with D's thumbprints on it (a school project).
  • The kids' want to know if we're going to celebrate Father's Day like this.  My husband told them that it's up to them.  
  • We went to church across town today and I put Baby T in the nursery and came back a couple times to see how she was doing.  In the past, she's cried the whole time she was there and I retrieved her during the homily.  Today, she was being rocked and comforted the whole time, but didn't cry.  She did start looking unhappy once she noticed me.  She lasted the whole Mass.
  • Baby T has been enjoying our Mother's Day cake.  In fact, she's been saying "cake".
