Happy Mother’s Day!

Sunday, May 13th, 2007

To all the other mothers out there, Happy Mother’s Day! As we were snuggled in bed for Reid’s waking-up nursing session, I told her that it was Mother’s Day. She asked if it was my birthday again and so I explained that it was a day to celebrate all mamas everywhere and that we’d celebrate daddy’s next month. She asked when we celebrate kids. There is actually a Children’s Day at some point but I told Reid everyday was her day. (My mother’s words coming out of my mouth, pretty weird ;+) I told Reid that she should tell me “Happy Mother’s Day”. ¬†Reid repliedd, “No, I want to,” and she didn’t – until she gave me presents and then she came through for me and that was after breakfast and after we went swimming. I’m not sure if she said the words to Grandma Barb but she did have hugs and kisses and so I imagine it worked out. We haven’t called Grandma Joyce yet but I’m hopeful she’ll be a good little parrot.

Have a great day, mothers and non-mothers alike!

American Girls Friends Forever

Sunday, May 13th, 2007

On Saturday morning, Reid came across the book that came with her American Girl doll that we got in New York in February 2006. It’s intended for bigger girls but it’s a good conversation starter for us back seat creatures. ¬†(Does the new place the Tigers play still have “bleacher creatures”?)

Today’s date: May 12, 2007
Full name: Reid Elizabeth
She is 2 3/4 years old.
Her birthday is July 25, 2004.
Her family includes: Mama, Daddy, Leo, Clio and many grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles and cousins. Does she like:
Salt or pepper: she has never had salt
Math or science: science is messier and so I guess science
Pants or short: shorts, for sure
Mustard or ketchup: ketchup
Apple or orange: orange
Morning or night: morning
Ice cream or pudding: pudding (don’t really remember when we last had pudding but maybe she eats it at daycare)
Cat or dog: cat!
Biking or swimming: swimming, only on that bike with Kailee in her whole life
Beach or mountains: beach but not in the water

If I’m organized enough, I’ll ask these questions again when she is older and we can compare the answers.
