Happy Mother's Day to Meeeeeee!

Mia and I spent the morning at Barnes & Noble at the Arboretum. A couple of my mama groups met for storytime, so we got to see many old friends and some new ones...Sweet Gwen was there with her Mama, too. The storytime, I feel, was geared a little bit towards the slightly older children. Well, Mia just didn't have the patience for it and wanted to storm the stage. There were some flowers up there and I'm not sure if she wanted them or just to climb up and down like she did before storytime started.

I was able to chat a little with Jeannie, Tanya and Melissa for a while while Ethan, Abby and Mia raided the stuffed animal display. Gwen was quite content to be close to her mama. Then off to the trains! They have a cute train table where the kids circle and play and interact with each other. I hung out a bit with Jennifer while her Ava and Mia attended to the trains.

But before we left, we went back to the stage area and found that along with the special Mother's Day story, there were crafts, flower potting and cake! Mia picked out a plant for me and assisted in planting it in a cup for ME...she packed the dirt and everything, and managed to eat only a minimal amount :) Then it was lunchtime....STAT! We shared a plate of meatloaf, green beans and yummy cornbread. Mia is the perfect lunch time partner.

Daddy put her stools and table and chairs together last night. I can't wait till she wakes up from her nap so we can try 'em out. Hmmm over a 2 1/2 hr nap and still going!

For my Mama
