Mother's Day



I am a mother with two babies. When did this happen to me?


We had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. My folks came up, we went strawberry picking at Washington Farms and had a nice dinner downtown Lawrenceville at McCray's on Saturday night. My husband made an awesome breakfast of strawberry pancakes and eggs this morning. Another weekend of excellent dieting.


The highlight of the day, however, was tonight. We went to eat at
Red Robin (how typical: people with two kids take the kids to Red Robin. I don't care - how awesome is Red Robin?!), and James finished off the night with some of our chocolate mudpie.
This resulted in him running circles around the bed when we got home. Stella was laying between Jason and I on the bed, while James went back and forth.... he was saying something over and over again, and I could not figure out what it was. Then out of the blue, there it was, clear as day: "I go fast! I go fast! I go fast!"

And boy, was he ever. Thank you, Red Robin mudpie. You make my boy go fast.
Now, I have two sleeping babies and my husband and I are enjoying the quiet. Another weekend gone "fast", and another work week yet to go. The chaos is certainly tangible, but the love cannot be described.

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day.

To all the wonderful mothers in my life, near and far: my mom, Mombow, Joan, Nannie, MawMaw, Melonie, Beth, Barbara, Anna, Sharon, Carol, Kim, Suzy, and our adopted mom, Sandy B....and all you girls out there who read this blog and understand exactly what I am saying.... I'm so glad to know such wonderful women and mothers like you.
