Play Date

My friend Stephanie just started a neighborhood mom’s group. I’m a mom (still weird for me to say), and therefore, I joined. Anyway, we were supposed to have a potluck picnic lunch today at a local park, but it was too cold, and so I hosted. Stephanie was the only one able to make it, and we had a great time catching up while the kids played, meaning her kids. Mine just sat there talking to the light fixture. :)

The kiddos…


Lennon, Rex, and Summer

The Food…

I made salmon cakes, potatoes pan fried in ghee with salt and pepper, and Stephanie brought squash casserole. Yum!!!

The Dessert…

Maple Nut Oaties…which I did not eat. Seriously, when is Easter?!?

I wasn’t so sure how I would feel about being a stay-at-home mom. CD and I decided early on that if we ever had kids, I would stay at home with them. Before Summer came along, I pictured myself stuck in a filthy, toy cluttered house covered in play dough, finger paint, and spit-up. Ha, perhaps I’ll find myself in that scenario in a couple of years, but for now, I truly love being at home with Summer everyday. Those first couple of months were HARD. Her naps were short and all over the place and leaving the house was a huge challenge. However, now we’re figuring out our schedule, and I can actually get to places on time (huge accomplishment!). I do have to say that Summer is a very easy baby, and that probably makes a huge difference. I don’t know where I’m going with this, but thinking about today and the next few years just makes me so happy. I never expected to love being a mom this much. I highly recommend it.
