Yesterday was perhaps the best mother’s day in recent years. It was nice to be at the Flea with the sun shining (also gave all the food vendors something to think about as the sun could be potentially tricky for all the chocolate, cupcakes, cookies and marshmallows). At about 3:30 pm, my parents, my mother-in-law and the girls arrived along with the return of sunshine which had gone into hiding for a few chilly hours. Miss C had a ball running around the school yard of the Flea with her newly acquired skill of “running” (which is still a stiff, fast walk – but she is fast). As expected when there are grandparents around, Mia managed to successfully coax her way into 2 ice cream cones and a large cookie, giving her the most intense sugar rush and crash that she’s probably ever had in her life. Later that evening, back at the house, we had a huge sushi platter dinner, a nice clean palette cleanser from all that sugar. I hope everyone had a lovely mother’s day as well.
