Mother's Day

Mother's Day is almost upon us and is one of my favorite times of the year. What mom doesn't love the cute little homemade (or daycare made) gifts and some yummy breakfast in bed. Of course it is also the day where you have to watch your eggs carefully for some dropped eggshell, but that's besides the point.

Imagine my delight yesterday, when I get home from work and walk in the door finally out of the pouring rain, Kate runs up to me and drags me to the kitchen where she shows me her masterpiece she created at daycare for Mother's Day. This is one of those times that make me love being a mother.

There was some glitter writing on the flower pot but by the time I got around to taking a picture Kate had already picked it all off. What it said we'll never know.

A Momentous Occasion

Something happened last night that has never happened before. Kate ate all of her food for dinner -- and there was no mac and cheese in sight! We had amazing grilled steak, steamed broccoli and mashed potatoes and Kate didn't put up a fight to eat anything. Well, that's wishful thinking because she somewhat hesitated with the mashed potatoes but I can't really get angry because she ate meat!

Without cheese on it!

Hardly any carbs anywhere near her plate.

I can't get over it and had to take pictures of this historic occasion:

Kate has been giving the ultimate cheesy smiles for her photos lately but she had a little bit of evil thrown in to this one...

Just for the heck of it I had to throw in a pic of Oliver for good measure. Kate put one of her hats on Oliver and thought it was the funniest thing! Can't you tell he's having a blast with this thing on his head??? Yes, that is drool you see hanging from his chin...
