Mommy Morale

After staying home for 7 days, while one after another of my sweet family (Ty, Avery then Dale) got hit with the dreaded flu bug last week, you can imagine my delight, when we were invited over for a Tea Party at “Gramma Esther’s” house.  She always plans the NEATEST things for the kids!  It worked out perfect, it was Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, so Destiny had no school.  

  Avery promptly announced she wanted to be Snow White for this Tea Party, so the others followed suit and I ended up being the chauffeur to 2 Snow Whites, (1 a Queen and 1 a Princess), a Fire Fighter King and a Teddy Bear Baby.

  The kids enjoyed the playroom, and then we had a nice soup lunch, followed by…tea! 


My kids adore tea, and tea parties with COOKIES make things even more exciting…..



Esther had this DARLING tea set, look:

Who needs cookies when you can eat a napkin?021

  Thanks for a GREAT time, Grandma Esther!!!!

  Tuesday was Destiny’s day to celebrate her half birthday, which as you recall is a BIG deal in Elementary School!  And, I wanted to be the one to deliver her treats.  However, I had no desire to try to walk into Central, wielding 2 Tupperware’s of cupcakes, an infant, 2 toddlers, a camera and a diaper bag, so Dale stopped home between appointments to let me go alone.  Thanks babe!  🙂  Destiny was in bed when I decorated the cupcakes, so she was excited to see them….and me! (better enjoy being “cool” while I can) 


  I sat and visited with her class as they ate, a teacher called Destiny up so the whole lunch room could sing to her, and then it was time for me to head back home to relieve daddy and put the little ones to nap.

  Isn’t it funny what those little breaks can do for a Mommy’s morale?
