Sniff. Sniff.

This morning, I was on adorable overload.

The sight of 3 and 4 year olds pledging allegiance, proudly presenting their mom's with handmade gifts, singing songs about rainbows, and bringing flowers to a statue of Mary was just too much.

Tissue, please.

E's school had a special Mother's Day tea for the moms today. It was just great. I loved every minute of it.

"No babies allowed. You have to get rid of Alice, Mommy". Alice was "gotten rid of" to my mom so I could concentrate 100% on E...one of her favorite things in the world. Everyone's and anyone's full attention on her. :) Daddy, Alice and Mimi (my mom) were permitted by her highness to witness the May Crowning of Mary after the tea.

That's awesome. And so cool that you are friends with all of the other moms. She is adorable in her little boots.

I received my first mother's day gifts today. They had the babies scribble on paper and then put them in the lining of a coffee mug. I was super excited.

How great is that! I have yet to get anything as a gift, but I did get a chocolate muffin from daycare this morning.

Awww! I was just talking with a friend earlier today about how it's going to be so fun once Remy's old enough to make cute little handmade cards and stuff. Happy Mother's Day!
