From May 11th…
We had a nice Mother’s Day this year. For probably the first time Lilli realized it was a day that was supposed to be about me, and I think she wished me a Happy Mother’s Day about a dozen times and would even ask me where I wanted to eat, what I wanted to do, etc. Abbi on the other hand, not so much. Also, not so much on posing for at least a picture or two.
The “as good as it gets before this toddler squirms out of here” pose, also known as the “she’s not smiling but she’s not crying either” pose:
In her happy place, just running wild. This was one of Lilli’s favorite old dresses, her Easter dress from 2010.
Abbi discovered salsa and the girl is in love. (Ironically Lilli discovered salsa right around the same time.) She’ll eat so much and her mouth will get hot, yet she just can’t stop. The girls got me several fun things, including this necklace Lilli picked out – very fitting considering it has all kinds of bugs and beetles on it.
We didn’t do much, which is exactly what I wanted. I had a nice nap and we spent some time at the playground before calling it a day in their matching “I love my mom” pajamas. A nap, chips and salsa and a bug necklace? What more could a mom ask for?
