Mommy and Me "I Love You" Tea
Yesterday I was went to a "Mommy and Me 'I Love You' Tea" at J's school. I got my invitation (a flower J had made at school out of painted coffee filters) last week and I eagerly anticipated the big event. Yesterday morning, I woke up and pondered what to wear. I wanted to look nice for the tea party. I felt like I was getting ready for a date. Silly, but true. I dressed up complete with real shoes (no tennis shoes for a tea party) and a real shirt (no t-shirts either). Anyway, the tea party was really nice. The table was beautifully decorated with more flowers the children had helped to make. J's class had also made us pigs-in-a-blanket and cookie flowers. After the tea party, J gave me my Mother's Day gift--a canvas bag decorated with handprint flowers and fingerprint bees, ladybugs and bluebonnets. Isn't it really cute? Anyway, the whole event was really fun and made me feel very special.
