Our week in pictures

Afton graduates from Kindergerten!

Abel is happiest outside where crazy is acceptable. He has been writing "w" on every piece of paper he comes across this week. Home preschool works!

Daisy loves hanging out on the blanket outside. She is always happy; except when it's time for bed because I'm not nursing her to la la land anymore.

I haven't had a picture of me and Daisy for weeks. I recruited Afton to take some shots today, but Daisy was not in the mood.

Patrick has been insanely busy again. This is what he looks like when he is home: kids attached at all times.

I love my kids!

I'm spending my Mother's Day...
eating the Milka bar Patrick had someone from work bring back from Germany this week, watching my kids play rough and laugh/cry at me every 5 minutes when it gets a bit too rough, getting, giggling at my exotic Mother's Day card (see previous post), wishing Patrick wasn't at work, deciding to purchase a good pair of jeans while I'm sizing down, and cuddling Daisy when she sleeps instead of putting her in her bed right away.

my mothers day card

Did anyone else get a card like this for Mother's Day?

I can't choose whether this card or my Mothers Day phone call from a woman in Bangalore- she read a message from Patrick- made me laugh more.

I'm so glad that Patrick knows I need to laugh.
