Clara woke up bright and early and wrote and illustrated an acrostic poem for me. (shown above) Please note that Fluffy the cat is shown in this drawing...I guess Clara didn't understand what happened last month after all! Aston was all fired up about the special day and was asking a million questions about the state of our house. Was it sparkly? Were there hearts on the walls? Apparently they celebrate Mother's Day a little different on Go Diego, Go than we do here. Ariel helped the kids present me with new plants for the garden. I have no talent as a gardener, but love gardening anyway. Most importantly, the children all posed for a picture for me without making zombie eyes or rabbit ears or any other dumb photo poses.

We spent our afternoon visiting with my family at my mother's house. We had a lovely barbecue and a bit of a plant swap. It was a nice time, although we managed to lose one of Aston's shoes and Clara ended up having an uncontrollable tantrum and Dorothy was fussing over a new tooth and Enzo might not be speaking to my stepfather anymore. Oh well. You can't win 'em all.
