I was very sad to miss Mother’s Day with my kids while we were in Uganda. (Although, thank you, Mishea, for informing me of my Mother Of The Year Award (wink).) I decided, though, to do something special with each of them this past weekend. Emma Grace has been begging to go to our brunch hot spot, Courtyard Cafe. It’s our little mother/daughter date spot and we always have to order the french toast. Don’t you just love how she dressed up for our little event?
The next stop after brunch is always the Shautany’s Chocolate Shop. I don’t mind, though. Free from hydrogenated oils, this chocolate is actually good for you, right? I love their chili chocolate and espresso chocolate!
She reminded me that she still wanted a new hair band. I just wasn’t happy with the overpriced, uncomfortable, plastic head bands that will break easily by a 4-year-old, bands that I kept seeing in the stores. So I offered to make her one. She was very happy with that. So we went home and got busy on her new hair band. When I get the pattern out of my head and onto paper (probably needs a little perfecting as well), I will post it. She’s already drawn pictures of the ones she wants and what colors so I know there will be more in the works!
After all that, I took Joshua to town with me for an ice cream at his favorite spot, Twinz. We talked about school, reading, you know, life. I love just being able to spend those special moments with each of them, concentrating on just them and their world!
