The kids got to celebrate Mother's Day at school today. Er I mean I got to celebrate being a mom at their school today. They fed us a wonderful lunch but I held Harry the whole time and fed him. And then we went to Max's class after having been in Maggie's class. I let Harry down and he was off like a shot . The kids love him so they played with him.
The games were our undoing. I couldn't help like I would have liked to in the fashion show creations made with toilet paper. And then the guess who belongs to the baby photo. I ended up just having to abort since Harry was into everything and cranky.
It was so nice to see so many moms there and I adopted one little friend whose Mom couldn't come. Sweet kid. I need to call his mom and set up a playdate for him and Max.
And somehow I feel like every kid in school is going to end up invited to Maggie's party. Howdidthathappen? ummm let's see Max keeps making invites and then giving them to Maggie and telling her to invite his friends. He knows how to work her....
I brought all the kids home from school after the tea. Only Harry napped but the other two rested on their own or played quietly for at least an hour. What a concept. It was actually pretty awesome and relaxing for that hour. I think I am finally getting used to the fact that Max just won't nap anymore (um yeah I know 3 years later, and I am finally accepting it.) Now it looks like I will have to start accepting that Maggie won't nap everyday but every few days instead. Thankfully she does a better job playing by herself or resting by herself.
Then Maggie got to watch 'The Little Mermaid'. She loves her disney movies. She still likes Tinker Bell the best.
I think I need to introduce her to shrek, where the princess can save herself.
