It was a relief to send Bella to daycare today and have a nice little nappy with Emily Bea snuggling into my shoulder. And I was feeling much better by the time preschool was over. I even put on my freshly-made Mendocino Sundress. It has octopuses on it! How can that not cheer you up? It certainly did me.
At supper tonight I was holding a squirmy, fussy Emily Bea and realized my boob had popped out. I looked at Brent, "HELLO! You could have said something!" Brent: "Why would I do that?" So now I'm just a teensy bit scared to wear it in public. Maybe we should have a code word? You know, in case you see me stumbling around town wrangling two kids with a boob out? That would make me feel better. How about "octopus." Got it? If you see my boob, shout OCTOPUS.
Glad we got that out of the way.
When Bella saw my new dress, she excitedly asked if SHE could have one TOO. I had to go in the other room to dance around and do a little cheer before I came back, "Well. I suppose. If you're really good." Ohmygod ohmygod mother-daughter dresses. Stay calm. Don't look too excited. Don't blow this.
We made the most delicious cookies tonight after supper. You see, Martha Stewart emails me cookie recipes every day. I know, so thoughtful of her! And a while back she sent me the Strawberry Shortcake cookie recipe, and I thought, as soon as I'm feeling a little better I'm going to try that one out. So tonight we did.
Emily was ready for hers!
Just kidding. Tee hee. Isn't she so cute?
