Day of Mothers

By Tara Zandra | May 14, 2006

I had a perfectly lovely Mother’s Day today. It started off with a scavenger hunt completely staged by Miss Tabitha. My first clue led me to my breakfast which she cooked for me- scrambled eggs, toast and Diet Coke. It was even placed at the computer for me so I could read email and blogs while I ate.

Next I followed each clue and eventually ended up at my gifts. Tabitha chose new warm fuzzy socks for me that I wear every night and morning. My old pair had developed a hole on the sole so now I can toss those and wear my black and polka-dotted socks :) She also made me a very funny card and decorated the box with loads of stickers and drawings. She also made me a card and frame at Kids Club this past week and gave those to me today as well. Chris chose two cards for me, one quite funny and the other a beatifully worded card about being parents together. His gift to me was a hot pink arm band for my Nano to make it easier for when I walk.

After we were all dressed, Chris took some pics of me and the kids which wasn’t easy. Outside caused us all to squint and Daisy desperately trying to get away to play and inside means Daisy has devil eyes. We did manage to get a couple shots and I’m happy if we just get one.

After Daisy’s nap we headed to my in-laws for a tapas party. Okay, we decided to just have appetizers as opposed to a full meal and I decided to call it a tapas party :) My mil provided potstickers, taquitos, crackers, chips and dip, mini quiches, mushroom turnovers, bruschetta and cream puffs. I brought cheese bread, tortellini skewers and asparagus roll ups. It was a good amount of food and there was something for everyone. We also took more pictures and I’m anxious to see how they turned out. After we were done eating, my mil took both kids into the jacuzzi which they both loved. Daisy thoroughly enjoyed being in there and showed no fear whatsoever. After we got them out amid loud protests we headed home with a quick stop at Target.

We’ve just kicked back this evening, Daisy is already in bed, Chris and Tabi are playing a game and I’m about to jump in the shower. We’ll get Tabs off to bed and sit down to 3 hours o’ Survivor.
