The Mother's Day Tea

Last Friday was a very fun day. I got to leave the house with a purse instead of a diaper bag, get into the car, and leave. ALL.BY.MYSELF.
The End.

Ok, as exciting as that was - that wasn't really the end. My Mom took the morning off so that I could attend a very special Mother's Day Tea at N's school. The kids had apparently been preparing for this for some time, and I was really looking forward to it. It isn't very often that I get to spend time with just N!

The event was held in one of the multipurpose rooms at school. There were tables set up with four sets of moms/kids to each table. There were many lovely "tea party" type snacks and desserts. Before walking into the room, the kids all took our arms and escorted us in. It was so cute. The seating was assigned, and when we found our places, we were met with some really sweet gifts! A beautifully decorated altoids tin, and inside - a shrinky dink pin of me! N drew a picture of me wearing jeans and nothing else. Now it is forever saved as a lapel pin. Love it. We also had some cute cards and a beautiful coaster! This is a picture of N. with his two bestest friends and fellow park-goers. Funny enough, they were wearing the same shirt that day!

After we had tea, juice, fruit, croissants, etc. the children put on a little show for us - The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Once that was done, each child was called to the front where the teacher gave him/her a rose. We had to meet our child at the front of the room. He/She would then give his/her Mom the rose and whisper in our ear - "I love you Mom. Thanks for coming." Wonderful, cheese-y goodness. I sure do love this boy.

That was really quite a production...the whole Mother's Day thing. Smunch's class made cards to bring home in their "Friday folders" and clay pinch pots. I love my pinch pot, which Smunch painted pink, but the pagentry must've been priceless!
